My Funny Little Baby (well 2-1/2 yr old) BOY!

Here are a few of my funny little man from Easter. Everyday he makes me laugh til I have tears in my eyes. The funny little things he says, his funny little dance (shake my boobie aka bootie) and stripping down to his underpants when he gets mad. These years (although some days are not easy) are not to be forgotten. Love ya Big-E

Spring Time in MInnesota

Today is the FIRST day of "Spring Break" for the kids and we woke to THIS! Who would have thought... that's Minnesota for ya! They were all SO THRILLED to get out there and play in the fluffy snow.  After about 2  hours the finally came in for hot chocolate (Briar's absolute favorite) 
Doesn't get any better than that!

the newest Charchenko hockey kid

Here is Briar at one of her Rookie Camp practices. She LOVED hockey (after the first few practices) and really did well for her first time on skates... now asks everyday when it starts again!

Grace is one of Briar's best friends from pre-school— and this is Jack, Grace's big brother.

Nikolai has his BIG Jamboree is this weekend, and he is super excited. We are so proud of the improvements he has made this year, he loves going to hockey and most of all being part of the team. It is so great to see your kids love something so much and to see their hard work and dedication pay off! 

Here he is suited up and ready to play.

Home sick.... well, sort of

After me battling the flu the past 3-4 days, Nikolai and Briar said they didn't feel well this morning. But by 10am, they seemed FINE. So, here are some pictures of our day of laying low.

And, NO that isn't a hockey injury by Nik's eye. It's an injury from his brother, Erik has hit the TWO'S.

I worked in the studio tonight cleaning, organizing, setting up...and am feeling ready for a RUSH! Played with our new lights too and also feel like I am "getting them" finally... thanks to Robin's help and tips. Here was my trusty "subject" that helped me play with the lights. Thanks honey, I know it wasn't what you had in mind ;)
