Project 365, Week 7

February 8
Good friends of ours are having their first baby. As Sarah was opening her presents, I was remembering back and thinking 'there is just no way she has any idea of knowing what they are getting into'. Soon their hearts will be filled in a place they didn't know was empty and they will know love on a level that has never existed for them before. Blessings, Jason and Sarah!

Later that day we went to Pop and Kiki's house. They invited us all over for a sledding and chili eating party. We had a warm couple days, and as you can see, much of the snow had melted in front of his house, but that didn't stop him or the kids.
They just invested in a quality tube for the kids...their favorite place for discretionary money to go...and it worked really well! The kids had a blast, but Pop and Christina were glowing, too.
Amanda wasn't thrilled about having to go on with someone, she prefers to go alone. She also refuses help walking back up the hill. At one point, she was laying flat on her stomach, eating snow, because her thumb-less mittens don't allow her to pick up anything.
Shaun's siblings and co brought Chinese over later after having spent some time at the hospital visiting Shaun's grandmother. Anytime we can all be together is a treat.

The phone call came late at night that Shaun's grandmother's suffering was over and she was in heaven with Jesus.February 10
Four months (18 weeks) Feeling great! My mom and Bobbi watched the kids so Shaun and I could go out and have some time together...we needed the breather.
This is how I see these faces most everyday after lunch...peanut butter and fluff. Fluff is one of those things I swore against before being a parent.
February 11
Shaun brings this bag to work with him everyday, January-April. Amanda calls it "Daddy's purse". He's been trying to get her to say "man bag".
February 12
The only picture I got from the day. We were all kinda sick.

February 13
I helped the girls make cupcakes for Valentine's Day. When I left the room for a couple minutes, the temptation was just too great for a certain 3-year-old. The 2-year-old is no angel, she was still napping.
February 14
Our Annual Valentine's Day Murder Mystery Dinner. Fun, fun, fun!!
There's more to see. Visit Sara and Kimberly, who are hosting.

The sledding looks like SO much fun...I wish we had enough snow to do that. Amanda is so brave to go down by herself - she must have a little independent streak. :)

I am so sorry to hear about Shaun's grandma - but it's good to know she's with Jesus.

You are looking fantastic - I'm so glad you posted that pic!

And the cupcakes - that would be too much temptation for ANY 3 year old, I think. Such good memories!
