Spring Fever in mid-Feb

Wed we hit a hig temp in the mid 70s! It was so nice to play outside (and in the garage) and not need coats - just vests. The kids were able to play in the snow, but I only got pics of them blowing bubbles, playing t-ball and riding around in the garage. For some reason, b0th kids wanted to wear their biking helmets while playing too, I'm sure the kids getting out of school that passed by were wondering what was going on LOL.

Choclate Covered Strawberries

Reagan dipped strawberries in chocolate while Wil was napping. We had a great dessert to last us 2 nights! She did a great job, only dipping a few leaves in chocolate along the way!

Valentine Cake Pops!

Had a success with strawberry cake and strawberry icing red heart shaped cake pops. Didn't have any of them crack this time and all of them stayed on the sticks...success!

Valentine Surprises

Both kiddos got goodies from Dad and Mom, both sets of Grandparents and stuff from Cousins and Greats Grandma and Aunt.

Valentine's Day at SWPS

Today was a great day to help at school. The Valentine's party was a lot of fun and the kids got to get outside and really run around (just not on the snowed-in playground). Reagan had such a great time!

Reagan was asked the following questions as a special Valentine's gift to us...super sweet!
1. How long have Mom & Dad been married? maybe 20 years
2. If you could send them to dinner where? Red Lobster
3. If you could send them on a trip where to and what to do there? Hawaii to watch the sea turtles
4. What present would you give them? D - Donald Duck M - Teddy Bear
5. How much do you love Mom and Dad? lots
What a sweetie...other than aging us by our marriage or lowering our marrying age (to alot), I would say she did an awesome job! We love you baby girl!

The Restaurant :)

The kids sat at their restaurant table for our yummy Asian Pork and Noodle dinner!

The Pink Out

We got to attend another pink out and see Truman in his pink shirt. Neither kid wanted to go up to meet Truman in person, but we were in the front upper row so we were able to see him up close!

Playtime in the Snow!

It finally warmed up enough for the kiddos to make it out and play a bit in the snow!


Caught the kids reading in a small space on Friday (another snow day for Reagan).

Our Snow Door

When I was trying to get some good pictures of the high snow (ended up with 18") I thought..."I wonder what the unfinished space door looks like?"  Never did I think I would open the door, luckily opens inward, and see a wall of snow.  I just can't believe how all the snow in our side yard had blown up against the house!  You can see dry pavement and iced over grass (even with 18" falling!) and it just stuck to the house and I had to share the pictures!

Snowmageddon 2011 :)

So I thought I would try to document this great weather event we are having today! It started with probably 1/4" of ice yesterday and then a little more overnight. Here are pictures from our deck door!

               12:00                           2:00
At this point we cleared off the table to keep it from getting too heavy.
