The weekend

This weekend we spent a fair amount of time outside, trying to get our quota in before the cold spell this week. We built a new fort, this time under the tree house. We also cleared off the yellow slide and spend the morning climbing into the tree house and sliding down into piles of snow. Today we went sledding at Bagley, which was awesome!

We also had time for a haircut and hockey:

Gracie had surgery last week (Wednesday) to reconstruct her torn ACL. She came home on Friday and is on strict rest for awhile. No walks and we have to take her outside on a leash when she needs to do her business. Six times a day we have to alternate hot and cold packs and move her leg for her. Anyway, Finn feels really sad for her and tries to cheer her up ("Here's a picture for you, Gracie.") It's cute. Below is our little gal - you can see the incision by Mickey's hand.

    My heart strings are being pulled for Gracie! I know she is in the best of hands!
    The boys look AMAZING as usual! The way this Winter is shaping us/down, we may not get to see them until Spring! Keep up the Blog...

    Nice haircut Finn!
