Off To Mt. Holiday

While trying our hand at the small hill next to our house, the kids (especially Niklas) quickly got bored. Mt. Holiday isn't far from our house and offer 1 1/2 hour lessons for a mere $25. The first part of the footage is from Christmas Eve, while the second part is of the boys experimenting with a slightly more challenging hill.

First Attempt Skiing




Thanks to Mociute (Lithuanian Grandma), the whole family got an early Christmas Present of new skis this year.  Once we got a bit of snow, we took the kids to the little slope next to our house to try them out.  I think they got the hang of it pretty quick.

Little Sparty!

Took Niklas to his first MSU football game today vs my Alma Mater (CMU).  After asking me 4,000 times, I finally caved and bought him the hat.

Interpretations

The first picture drawn by my budding artist is of yours truly. Notice the beard, the gelled up hair, and the otherwise happy look on my face...



Now, notice the differences in the portrait of mommy.  The look on her face seems to accurately depict that of someone dealing with triplets on a daily basis.

Another try with soccer



Last year, when the kids were 3, we put them in Ypsilanti Township Soccer.  The net result was that we paid a couple hundred dollars to have our kids cling to our legs for several Saturday mornings in a row.  This year, as evidenced by this video, things are looking up a bit.
