It snowed a little....
Initially it was super duper fun! The weather warmed up with the storm and and we had a few days that we actually got to play outside!
AnDee dressed up as Pep and Pep dressed up as AnDee. The good news about this little adventure is that I discovered that Peps pants make SUPER cure capris for The Girl.
Ikey got a rad hipster haircut.
Bernie grew a little..
The conversation with this girl was fabulous. At one point she asked why Heavenly Father made soda pop if it isn't good for us. So I asked her "What do you think?" and before I even got it out she interrupted with "OHHHH! I know! I think he did it so that we could learn NOT to drink it. So we can make a good choice!" I was a little taken back by this. It was such a simple way to look at it but I don't think I even processed this concept until I was an adult.
Then as we were walking from store to store "shopping" (window shopping?) She was skipping and bouncing and hopping all over, like she usually does and she grabbed my hand and looked up at me and said. "Mom? Sometimes when I don't play enough my legs get REALLY springy and I just can't stop bouncing!"
Such a fun night!
Isaac really really likes belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints... he does.... I think...
We have kind of started a tradition for Valentines Day where we make a treat and some Valentines gifts and take them to Andrews work to pass them out to everyone. The kids LOVE it and its so nice to just get out and do something new.
I kind of hate Valentines Day. Its fun with kids but the actual holiday is pretty stupid. However... I pretty much nailed it with Andrews gift this year.
