Valentines Fun

We had a really fun Valentine's Day this year. I made sure to have a few festive projects for Evan to do leading up to the big day. One nice sunny day we painted hearts with marbles.
The kids decorating heart shaped glasses with hearts. Audrey mostly just threw the little heart stickers all over the room.

 V Day morning I made the kids pink heart pancakes with chocolate chips. Made this guy happy...
 And it looks like Audrey enjoyed them also!
 Audrey thinks she's so funny when she has food hanging out of her mouth...yep, that's my precious little girl!
 After lunch we headed out to enjoy the nice weather and dig up Grandma's flowers.
 And it was a great day for bubbles!

Sure do love all 3 of my cute Valentines!

And here are a few non-Valentines pictures.

Evan and Cougar engaged in a friendly game of Guess Who. Don't worry-Evan won. Cougar should know by now that Evan is always Chief.
 First few attempts at ponytails on Audrey
 We haven't done it since. She doesn't like to sit still and her hair is so fine that the rubber bands don't stay in very long. And she's in that darling mullet stage.

It's Been A Long Time...

I know. It's been a really long time. But blogger told me I'd run out of storage space and I was not about to pay for it. I tried a few things to get it to work, but nothing helped. Then I tried it again today and now it works! So here's some of my favorite highlights from the last few months.

Picking out a Christmas tree at Home Depot. And yes my son did wear that Rudolph nose around the whole time.
We visited the LA Temple to see all the Christmas lights
Grandma and Grandpa took the kids to the ward Christmas party while we were out of town for Reed's company holiday part. It was a PJ party. I don't know why they couldn't have chosen a different pair for
Audrey met's so cute when that bottom lip comes out!
Before church on the Sunday before Christmas. And even though Evan's eyes are closed, this is the best one we got!

And a few from Christmas morning

Then it was January. And this big girl turned ONE! 
 She got some fun new toys!
 Getting ready for the birthday song
 Loving her cake!
 Being one sure is fun!

The rest of January was full of sick kids and doctor visits. And now that February is here, we're getting excited for Valentine's Day and Reed's birthday!
