Happy Valentine's Day- and Catch up- always catching up

Happy Valentine's Day!! We have been busy as usual. Lots of colds- coughing, sneezing, sore throats. Gotta Love Winter. This week has been emotional with the death of a friend's husband. It makes me more grateful for the blessings I do have in my life. So, last night I went out on a date with my husband. We saw MARLEY AND ME and it even made me grateful for the blessing of two dogs that aren't NEARLY as bad as Marley!! Good movie, but of course the book was better.
This is our Valentine's Tradition. Mine, really. I get up and decorate the table and make Chocolate Chip pancakes (heart shaped, of course) with whipped cream. Beside each plate is a little Valentine "goody bag" full of fun treats and toys. The kids LOVE it.

Silly Olivia looked so cute in Bekah's hand-me downs I had to take a picture

Olivia is in this "Superman" phase- I'm not sure where she heard of him, but she likes to pretend to fly around the house with a cape on!

It snowed a while back and it was FINALLY good, wet snow. Perfect for snowmen. Ours only lasted a little while before someone thought it would be fun to knock it down. Rude.

Notice how excited Jack was to play in the snow after school.
No time to take off the backpack!

Our two dogs, Goliath and Higgins, NOT the "World's Worst Dogs"
