Sunshine Sunday - wild life, waffles, and winter fun

I love living near the moutains.  Yesterday we looked out our window and saw this.  Apparently there was a deer conference scheduled in our yard.


Here's the keynote speaker.  (I caught this shot with his mouth open.  He was eating our ivy.)  My boys get so excited as they watch at the window and I love to watch the boys and the deer.


My latest indulgence has been this.  I put two waffles together with some Nutella in the middle.  Oh baby.  I really love eating.


Lastly, I was grateful to get some special time in with Rex.  My husband and I took him snow tubing.  Here in Utah they have a couple of places that have a rope tow or a conveyor to take you back up to the top.  Very nice for the lazy people like me who love to ride down, but don't enjoy hauling the kids and sleds back up.  Here are all the people riding up the conveyor.


And here is Rex's my-mom's-taking-a-picture-and-making-me-smile face.  He loved every minute of the tubing.


What was the best part of your week?

  2. I think finger painting with my son Baylen. ( I just realized your son's name is Baden!) It was such a gift to be able to spend an afternoon being creative with him.
    Happy Sunday!

  3. Jen,
    I love your snowy pictures. I live in Louisiana and we don't get much snow, but we got a little on Friday. I read your charity tab on your blog and wanted to share something with you. In our little town, we hold an annual auction (35 year tradition) for the children of St. Jude. In the years past, we have raised close to a million dollars trying to find a cure. Because of the weather, I'm not sure how we are doing. Today is the last day to give. If your interested, the website is mindenstjude.com. You can go shopping for all kinds of chances for some really neat items. Thanks for letting me share.

  6. The best part of my week was getting out of the house and going to church last night - we're snowed in!

    Did you know yesterday was World Nutella Day? :) I blogged a photo of my Nutella eating...

  8. My husband just left for a week out of town and my oldest stepped up as man of the house. He's 9 and he vacuumed, carried wood in, took care of the chickens, made lunch for his brother, helped do dishes, and laundry. I can't believe the amount of help he has been in the first day, so we went bowling and played pinball. Super fun way to show him how grateful I am!

  9. Your tubing pics look like so much fun! We live in the desert though, so no snow here...

    Best part of my week was Friday, when I made heart sugar cookies, and let my boys decorate them. They had a blast.

    First time commenter here... the new blog looks great!

  13. Who doesn't LOVE Nutella?? Yum!

    Well, we just got back from Hawaii on Wednesday, which means the house is a mess! And of course, we invited 15 people to come over and watch the Superbowl... yikes! So Saturday we ran around attempting to clean (which really means shoving things into closets). And today I am cooking vegetable soup and meatballs. My kitchen smells great!

    Your tubing pictures are great! Can't wait to do that with our little guy.

    Have a great rest of your weekend!

  14. Love the deer pictures! The best part of my week was Thursday, my mother in law watched our boys. We got to go out to dinner just the two of us. It was so nice!

  15. Where is this amazing hill with a conveyor belt? I live in UT and would love to know. : )

  16. It's in Park City. It's called Gorgoza Park. I should mention that it's a once a year kind of thing because it's a bit pricey. There's also one in Midway. They have a rope tow that they hook your tube up to so you ride up on your tube, too. Just as fun.

  17. "I love eating" BAHAHAHAHA. MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY. Have you tried putting Nutella inside a croissant yet? You'll die happy, I assure you.
    That looks super fun! I just found out there's a park thinger in my city that's like a waterslide park but with snow and tubes. And I got super excited about it and posted on facebook and apparently there's MORE THAN ONE. I don't know how I've been missing out this long. Deprived is what I am. And my kids, clearly.
    Well, actually, the baby would opt out I imagine, so my ignorance is only depriving one kid.

  20. That looks like so much fun. I think about that every winter. But then I think about all the winter gear I would have to pack and I freeze that thought for another day. Winter-- you can't live with it, you can't live without it.

  21. Oh, Cheri! Those are the best ever! I love the one with his mouth open...hilarious! Gosh...animals make every day better, no? I love them.

  22. Well, I can't add any adorable pictures to share but the greatest thing about my week was that I aced two tests in one of my crazy hard classes. That is enough to get me through 6 more days!

    On another note. I am a new lover of Nutella. And now I have to make some waffles and try a waffle sandwich. Thanks for inspiring my breakfast for this following week!

  23. Wow; love the pictures of the deer. How cool and they look so beautiful. thanks for sharing.

  24. Did you know that it was World Nutella Day on Saturday? Oh I hope so..since your waffle eating had such style it seemed to demonstrate that type of hazelnut -chocolate worship.

    love your blog! New follower.

  25. The best part of my week was when I found out that Asher told my mom during a quiet car ride that, "I like my mommy's cookies." Success:)

  26. It looks like you were not the only ones up there. I had no idea it was so popular. I am surprised there is enough room for everyone coming down the hill. Like no bumping into people. It looks like so much fun and oh so cold.

  27. That tubing hill looks like so much fun! I'm going to have to take my kids!
