A Warm February

We’ve had a lovely warm and sunny stretch around here!


Apparently a lot of these blog posts start out with a weather report, but it really does improve my mood when its warm and sunny (and not windy!). We get to go outside in the back “yard” more, and open up the curtains and blinds to let all the natural light in. As Jordan will tell you, I LOVE having the house lit up with natural light, even if it makes screens hard to see. 🙂 I’m just a sucker for it.


We had a great Valentine’s Day. The kids and I went to my mom’s group Valentine’s party. They got to decorate a Kleenex box to hold their valentines, while the moms went through and stuck a card/treat in everyone’s box. It was nice to see some of my friends that I don’t get to see very often – I don’t get to go to many mom’s club events because of my work schedule. But I really value the friendships I’ve built there. Its nice to have other ladies to talk to who are right there in the trenches with you.


And since the party was in a room of the library, we had some fun playing in the children’s area afterwards. Its been a while since we’ve played at the library, so it was fun to see my kiddos interacting with toys in a different way. They’re really growing up!

On President’s Day, we went to the Butterfly Pavilion with my mom and sister. That’s a fun place for children, though I think we still prefer the Children’s Museum. Jax especially loved looking at all the bugs and fish, and he kept walking around the butterfly area saying “Mo bu-erflies!” Butterflies has now been added to his vocab. Jaylee was a little nervous around the flying butterflies, which was not helped by the fact that she was wearing a red shirt that attracted them all. 🙂 It was a good time though.

Life goes on as usual around here. We got a pretty big surprise on February 20, but more about that later. I think we’ll have a separate post on that. 🙂

I just realized that my kids are wearing the same clothes in most of these photos. 🙂 Can you tell that I thought Jax looked really stinking cute in his little shirt and collar? He’s getting so big! Its hard to believe my little baby isn’t really a baby anymore. Actually, I choose not to believe it.


Jordan commented the other day that our kids are really really freakin cute. And I’d have to whole-heartedly agree.


Till next time!
