This and That

We have the most beautiful snow again.  Driving the kids to school today I just count myself lucky to live in this wonderful part of the world.  I am free to drive my kids to school and make my own choices.  So far they are all making good choices and have good friends.  My house is cozy and warm.  I need to not be so selfish and wish for a bigger house and more room.  Really I am very blessed.  I need to enjoy what I have while it is here.
 Dave has been getting up at 4:30 or 5 in the morning to get done everything he needs to.  I don't know how he keeps the hours he does.  We have made cupcakes for his birthday today.  His favorite, chocolate with whipped cream in the middle and chocolate icing.  Sunday we are having Panko chicken for dinner as he requested and next Friday we are going to Firestone (we got a certificate for Christmas) to celebrate birthdays.  The kids and I got him just a few little presents to open tonight.  I guess at 41 birthdays just aren't big blow out parties anymore. :(
Cora has got her donuts in her teeth and they are moving nicely.  She is not in pain anymore so hopefully she will get used to the braces quickly.  We get them on next Monday.  Because of the snow her last basketball game was cancelled.  Cora was very sad.  She is loving basketball now.  Which of course makes Dave and I  ecstatic.
Dave and I also started coaching Leah's basketball team this week.  I have missed coaching and it is really fun to do with Dave.  He is so great with kids.
Blake has made a new friend in school.  I am really happy with this choice.  A guy in our ward got remarried and his new wife has a son Blake's age.  They really get along and he lives right around the corner from us.
That is just some of the updates from our family this week.  I will have birthday pictures for you soon.
