Week 2 - January 8-14

This week was a busy week
The big news this week is that Ethan turned 10!   He has reached double digits.    We celebrated several times this week.    Ethan had a friend over for the weekend.   Then on Sunday,   Grandma and Grandpa come over for a lunch and cake and a few presents.     

 Thursday, he took a giant cookie to school for his birthday treat.  

I went back to work this week.  Only 2 classes this semester, so I have some extra time to help with CPR classes at the hospital.  
 The mild weather that we have had so far this year changed on Wednesday and Thursday.   Unfortunately,   we received very little snow.   Mostly just cold winds. 

Ben helped me cut up fruit for dinner.    He created a "Fruit Ninja" display.    This is currently their favorite game on their ipods.    You slice fruit with swords to score points.  

 Ben actually had 2 commitments on Saturday.   First,   We had a Jazz band festival in the Morning.   They did a really good job.   Then to Sioux City for a hockey tournament.
