We spent a snowy weekend 
at my parents place
at Sundance...

Legos are the toys of choice at Sundance

Getting a little pep talk before jumping off the deck...
The snow is sooooo high
it's not that far of a drop
(well thats what her brothers are saying)

Even brave little Smith made the jump

Big brother making it look sinchy

Sibley didn't exactly jump off the deck
It was more of a
"help, I'm plummeting to my death"
kind of thing.

S-nooooo fun!

Sundance Film Festival 2010...

Last year Will did business with 
an entertainment company
that put on several shows and events
during the film festival.
It was a 
pretty cool experience.
Lots of work
Lots of stress
Lots of shmoozing...
but nonetheless a
pretty cool experience.
He made tons of contacts... 
so this year 
we just got to shmooze
without any of the work...

Me and Nas

Chewy from Chelsea Lately...
You could not believe
how the girls were swarming him...

"Hoops" from the ever so inspirational show
"Flavor of Love"
How she dated Flava Flav is beyond words and comprehension...

Me with Louie Vito's wild hair in my face.
He is the Olympic snowboarder
 who was just on Dancing with the Stars

Little John (emphasis on little)

Will and I at "Chef Dance."
What an incredible experience.
Famous chefs from all over the world
come and prepare awesome 5 course meals.
I was quite brave...
I tasted lots of fancy shmancy things
 that are NOT
on my usual food repertoire.
Papa John (the pizza guy)
was at the next table over...
I guess even pizza guys can appreciate fine dining :)

I look like a fatcicle...
with Danny Masterson from
That 70's Show

I know this picture is sure to horrify my mother...
and nail polish
oh my...
We're not supposed to judge a book by the cover, right?
Yes indeed
 Dave Navarro is kindof a scary looking chap
He was a super nice, polite guy
and can rock the guitar like no other!

Pretty good deal...

I Made It Mondays...

I decided that 
I'm going to try and post an
 "I Made it"
at least a few times a month...
(hopefully more)
In turn I'm hoping that
 it will keep me creating 
at least something
a few times a month...
(hopefully more)
Whether it big or small
Detailed or super plain
Sewn or hot glued
Painted or sketched or photographed...
use that right-side of your brain
create something...
It's good for the soul

I made these skirts and tanks for the girls.
The fabric is a little on the 
"I'm a rock-n-roll pirate" side...
but it was dirt cheap 
from a little hole in the wall fabric shop. 
I had no pattern...
 just kept adding this' and thats 
after several mishaps
 they finally came together
best of all
I made it...

Friday, January 15, 2010're supposed to dribble the ball???

Sibley decided that she wanted to play basketball
Sibley has NEVER played basketball
I'm not really sure if Sibley has ever legitimately
 dribbled a basketball
but Sibley wanted to play basketball
so we signed Sibley up...

Sibley often forgets to dribble the ball...
Running down the court with ball in hand
will usually draw Sibley a whistle...
Poor Sibley
Then we remind ourselves that
it's Sibley's first year of basketball
and Sibley loves it
and that my good friends 
is what's important 
to Sibley...

New Years Resolutions...

I've been toying with the idea of starting a blog for ages.  
To blog or not to blog?
...that has been my question. 
 Today I finally answered that question and decided to blog. 
 I am entering a world of computer savviness
 that is super foreign to me. 
I literally have to wait for my teenager to get home from school
 so he can download pictures for me.
 It's pathetic... I'm fully aware.
  It actually is for him,
 and his brothers and sisters,
 that I really wanted to start a blog. 
 I'm hopeful that most entries 
will be like a letter to them
 or a memory for them.
 That in the future when they read this,
 they will get to know me better.
 Like, really get to know me. 
I think our children most often see us in a different light
than we probably think they do. 
I'm their Mom right...
not a regular person :)
 Life sometimes gets the better of me, as a mother.
  Some days I literally think I am losing my mind. 
I need to blog to chronicle time.
.I need to blog to remember things.
 I want to remember the little things that make the Snowdens the Snowdens.
 You may not be particularly interested in my trip to Target, 
or the hilarious thing I thought one of my kids said,
 or even the crafty thing I made. 
maybe when you read this blog,
 you'll get a little glimpse into our lives. 
 And maybe,
 just maybe, 
want to stick around awhile. 
 So here's to our blog...
ramblings, typo's, grammatical errors and all. 
Welcome to our world...
