Happy Birthday Steph!

A bunch of us kidnapped Steph on Tuesday night and took her out for dessert to celebrate the big 28! Thanks Dan for keeping such a good secret! Grrr...

Lori and Joy (who are both expecting as well!!)
I actually cropped myself out of this picture-hehe I am just over the prego pics!
Steph loves presents!!
Joy got Steph this awesome scented neck warmer. A bunch of us got pedicures a few weeks ago and Steph was a big fan of the neck warmers at the spa- so this was a great present!
Ok, so we had some laughs while Steph tried to figure out the "cool" way to wear the awesome scarf from Jenn!

The Ice Pond

Our kids LOVE the ice rink in Qtown. This year has been freezing, so we could have been there a lot, but with so many sick kids we haven't gotten there too often. Last Sunday we bundled everyone up and had a blast! Papa Ricky joined us too and he brought his new skates. Papa use to play hockey for Boston College and he hasn't skated in many years, but he was back into it within minutes! :)

Our family just uses sneakers, but I think we're going to try and get the kids some skates soon!
Kira loved to have Daddy slide her all around the ice on her bottom :)

Our little hockey player!
Daddy's girl
Papa gettin ready to bush up on his skillz :)
I couldn't go out on the ice... for some reason everyone was worried about me slipping and falling, but I promised I wouldn't drop the camera! HA! I guess they were thinking about the being pregnant thing :)
It was a little hard to get any good pics b/c I was just standing on the side pretty far away.

Build-a-Bear with G & G

Last Friday we went to Build-a-Bear with G & G Mangin. They got the kids a gift certificate there for xmas so this was their big night out! We had a blast making a puppy and a panda bear. Eric and I were really impressed with the whole process and the lady helping the kids was great! It was a great time together- thanks G & G!!
