Fun in the snow

On Saturday we took advantage of the awesome weather and got dressed up in our snow gear and played in the front yard. We have had so much snow that we were able to make a toboggan run in the front yard. It was alot of fun!

Pink for Cancer

Last year at this time Steve dyed his hair pink to raise money for Cancer. He really inspired me and I said that next year I wanted to do it. I kinda forgot about it and then was putting it off getting cold feet but a friend at my office encouraged me and convinced me to do it. We set up a team (Steve-O and Bri vs cancer) and decided to dye our hair pink. Until last week I was just just raising money because it was a good thing to do for a very worthy cause. Now, after news I received earlier this week, cancer has hit very close to home. I know all the money raised goes to programs that focus on Children but I am personally doing this for someone close to me.
