So, it snowed the other day.
I won't lie. I didn't get excited. Well, maybe just for a second because it was kinda pretty.
I can't figure out why snow and cold weather love me so much.

Anyway, the kids ran around in it when it was falling and the next morning, they wanted to play it in.
Too bad I didn't bring our snow boots that we had in Utah. I really didn't think that we would ever need them. Who came to the rescue? Matt, of course. He rigged up some "boots" with some of his athletic tape. Yay- FOR Dad!

We had a fun Valentines Day. I had a coupon, so I was able to get the girls these little cute matching dresses, tights and headbands.
We all color coordinated and went to church.

Someone found a cool hot pink heart to surround their amazing family.

I love Valentine's Day

I have always loved Valentine's Day. Not the gift giving or candy or commercialization of it, but just the idea of being thoughtful and expressing how much you care to the special people in your life.
Not to mention, I have the best valentine in the world. Matt always does something thoughtful and creative for me. Remember last year?

I helped Jonah cut out hearts for his valentines to give to his classmates and to decorate his valentine box and it was just so much fun. I convinced him to make homemade valentines this year to pass out at school and he actually had a lot of fun coming up with the sayings.
I thought he was really creative and the best part was when he realized that homemade valentines were more fun to create.

We also had to decorate sugar cookies. Valentine's Day and sugar cookies just go together. It is always entertaining to watch kids try and cover their cookie with 2 tons of sprinkles. I just had to laugh. Those little nonpareils really can make a mess.

I guess I just like hearts and love.
Pretty great things to celebrate if you ask me.
