January/February Random Pics!!!!

Snowshoeing at Gunstock XC Ski Area

We had alot of fun this day! Maggie was upset, she wanted to XC ski but we didn't know how Rylee would do so we decided to try it another day.
The kids had a great time and Reese liked the pulk sled we pulled her in. It was very easy to do and you had room in the sled to put your lunch, water bottles, there. I've been looking on craiglist for used skis and snowshoes. After the 1 1/2 hour drive to Gunstock I found out we have extensive XC trails in our town of Brentwood. This is due to all the conservation land, etc....

PULK SLED!!!! Would like to buy one of these but they are pretty expensive brand new and I've not found one yet that is used.

This is us at the Hampton Penguin Plunge at Hampton Beach. Matt's cousin, Krissy does the penguin plunge each year to raise money for special olympics. It was so cold just with our coats on (with the wind chill who knows what the temp was) and all the people that had raised money for the cause actually lined up in swimsuits, etc...and plunged into the cold Atlantic waters (around 30 degrees or so they said). I cannot even imagine, WOW!

Matt waiting for the parade to start before the plunge.

She looks cold!!!

Rylee's kindergarten class at Swasey takes turns writing in a journal about their class stuffed animal, Cookie. Reese liked Cookie!

Our new cat, Bradley. He doesn't care for us too much and basically lives in the basement. We put in a kittie door.

With 3 girls, can you imagine why he hangs out in the basement?

Rylee posing with Cookie in our town library. Pics to follow of the library, it is super cute!
