Valentine's Day 2018

We had a big day celebrating Love Day. We partied at the preschool in the morning and ended with a party in EKs class. We consumed far too many sweet treats and enjoyed every one of them!  It was a great day.

Father Daughter Dance

Last Friday night was the Father Daughter dance at the church. This event has become one of EKs favorite nights of the year. A couple of years ago, they left early because EK refused to dance. That is no longer the case! These 2 are dancing machines and it makes my heart smile for them to have such precious opportunities to make memories together.

January...The Longest Month Ever!

I keep seeing the meme that says "January was a tough year but we made it."  Our January wasn't particularly tough but it did seem to drag on for a sweet forever!  We filled our days with lots of goodness so here is a little (actually quite long) recap.

The little two kicked off the new year with a parade through the church. My ears are still ringing from the noise makers!😳

And the only thing better than one parade is two!  Emma and her friends had a Royal Parade to celebrate the end of their fairy tale unit. She loved waving to all the peasants watching in the hall!πŸ‘ΈπŸ»

J led chapel for EKs class. She is always so proud to have her Daddy with her!

It's always a treat to get snaps from Haley throughout the day too! Man I'm going to miss her being at school with EK!

EK is in the midst of lots of rehearsals as she prepares for the spring performance in March. She still loves it, so back and forth to the studio we go....a lot! 

A short 4 days after our snow melted, we were greeted by sunshine and high 60s temperatures. It was glorious!  W decided that the warmer temps would be the perfect time to drop his training wheels and take off on his big boy bicycle. He worked so hard and had it down in no time!  I kept telling him to trust himself and believe he could do it. I got so tickled as I videoed bc as he got closer, I could hear him saying "I trust I can do it" over and over again. It was precious!

Haley and EK had a special night together at Riverdance. They had a wonderful time and reported that the show was amazing. 

Thank you Haley for the special treat for EK!  Precious memories!  I know she will remember it forever!

Living In A Snow Globe❄️⛄️❄️

Living in the Deep South, winter is just something we don't have to deal with very often.  So, when the weather forecast called for a second snow in one winter, we honestly didn't know what to think or do.....except to clear the grocery stores of all the milk and bread for all the milk sandwiches we must think we are going to eatπŸ˜‚. We lucked out this go around and got word the night before that schools would be closed the next day so we were able to sleep in (whatever that means when you have kids that are way too excited at the thought of snow.)  We bundled up and went out to play. Emma hated the snow last time but this time she had a blast. They kids played for a while before coming in to warm up and eat lunch. We went back out that afternoon to attempt to build a snowman but we were unsuccessful since it would not pack very well. Maybe next time!

We ended our snow day fun with some snow ice cream. 2/3 of the kids were fans!  Thanks to the frigid temperatures we are enjoying a second day at home today while all the mess out side hopefully clears up and we can get back to our normal life tomorrow!  No worries Mississippi, we will be back in the upper 60s  right where we belong next week!
