February 16, 2013. Spa Day!

Last Saturday Collin and Logan were getting ready to go racing. Sophie was so dissappointed. She wanted the boys to stay home so we could "do something fun." I knew that I had to make our afternoon extra fun and special. So I created the Day Spa!! Both Sophie and Ruby loved it. We started off with facials. I didn't have any sort of face mask, so I decided to use chocolate fudge sauce. Yummy! Ruby did't want anything to do with the face mask or the cucumbers.  They're scary I guess. They had their finger and toe nails painted and by the end felt totally pampered!!! So much fun. After all that relaxation, the girls thought it was totally necessary to go get some frozen yogurt! So we did that too!! I sure do love these girls.

The kids had a blast putting together their Valentines for their friends at school.  It's amazing how something so simple can take up the whole afternoon! The kids loved it though. This was Ruby's first time putting together Valentine's and she wasn't quite sure she wanted to give any away!  It was a good thing that there were more in the box than there were kids in her class.  She immediately went to work designing outfits for the little paper dolls!
Such a fun afternoon!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Lyla was walking her little puppy this morning! It was the cutest thing I have ever seen. I never want to forget her little toddler walk. Love that sassy baby!

morning frost

Although I hate the cold weather, I love seeing the trees covered in frost each morning!  I think it is so beautiful. But I look forward to seeing these same trees covered in blossoms.  Spring can't come soon enough!

Jan 2013
January was a looong month! 
We had several big snow storms. School was even cancelled once!
Hooray for Snow Days!
We also had an ice storm. Everything was frozen and slippery!
Logan had the flu. Boo!
The kids all had a yucky stomach bug.
Sophie had strep throat.
We spent a lot of time inside away from the cold.
We colored, read stories, did homework, watched movies, and played with toys.
Collin started Jr. Jazz and LOVES it!
Logan had a birthday!
Sophie had a school assignment to create a habitat. She chose the Coral Reef and did a great job!

Goodbye January. Hello February!
