Valentine's Day

What more do you need? We had a little sick kiddo and missed our evening out, but stayed in and stayed up late with chocolate dipped strawberries, sparkling cider, and a grown-up movie. And John also gave me a bunch of tulips (my fav) for the occasion.
And I just had to post a pic of Teagan's Valentine box. I thought it turned out sooo cute and he was excited that he made the ears out of up-side-down hearts, that he cut out by himself.


Kamryn has discovered that she can climb in the unfinished cabinet next to our dishwasher and mommy thinks she's so cute.


A friend dropped this toy off for Kamryn a few weeks ago and the picture doesn't show it....but Kamryn has LOVED it. She is constantly on it and knows that her big brothers are too big for it, so she gets it all to herself. She has started putting her feet up through the handles by the zebra's head and she rides that crazy animal hard. Thanks Shelby!

Good Morning

Thank you Brody, for waking your sister up sooo nicely. (Obviously she didn't seem to mind.)

Another #3 Party

Ok, since Brody wasn't thrilled with the 'grown-up' birthday cakes we had in WA, we decided to have a little party with John's parents and Aunt Kati and Brad. Brody had wanted a dinosaur cake, but it turned into a last minute castle cake with dragons. This TOTALLY worked for Brody. He loved it. Phew!
We still had Gma and Gpa's birthday present to Brody stashed in the closet, so he was able to open while they were visiting.
Kamryn loved it as well....we were not sure that she was going to share.
Hot Wheels rule!!!
