Happy Valentine's and Happy Birthday!

What precious gifts from the kids!

Rob gave Lane a pink rose and me a red one...

(Christi don't laugh at these cupcakes...the kids made them (or at least that's who I am going to blame!! You don't have to worry about getting the icing to look good when you have these terrible tasting candy hearts to slap on the top!) And look, Lane can be your assistant if you ever need one.....

Lane made the birthday hat for him to wear!

Another birthday/Valentine's day celebration at our house complete!

A little gymnast??

Here are the baby's 4-D ultrasound pictures...a couple of good ones, but she kept her feet and hands and umbilical cord in front of her face most of the time! Yes that is her foot above her head!

And thanks to her "Ellie" her is what we have done on getting her room ready....

Professional snowman builder!

Man, this surprise snow we got was the BEST for building a snowman....our 4 wheeler isn't running so great, so no sledding this time! However, Lane is now a professional snowman builder, so if you have any snow still lingering and need some yard decor, she can help! Bo and I went in after we threw up a quick little snowman (because he just equates snow with hot chocolate, so he will go outside for 2 minutes and say, "now can I have my hot chocolate!")....but Lane stayed out there by herself for an hour just rolling snowmen....I looked out the window and there were little miniature snowmen all over the yard! She is a task oriented girl! Then she opened the front door and hollered at me "I need a bowl to put the snow for the snow cream in!" On to task #2! Hope everyone has enjoyed their snow break...unfortunately, I have had to work most of it...oh well, I am off tomorrow and Monday. Have a good weekend.

I bought the kids valentines for their classmates today and as I was cooking supper (I made shrimp and grits for the first time and I must say it was pretty good...Bobby Flay food network recipe)......anyway, I looked over and they were working together on their valentines. With NO help from me, these two finished all of their valentines and had them sacked up and ready to go! Lane took the lists, helped Bo write his and marked all of the names off as they went. They are so independent....guess that's what comes with being 15 months apart. I am afraid Kate may be a little more least that is what momma keeps telling me...that she will be spoiled rotten!
On that note (baby Kate), I went to the doctor today (26 weeks) and everything was good...which was great for me to hear...I have been having contractions for a while, and started on progesterone injections about 6 weeks ago (which I am now giving myself!), so I was relieved to here that she seems to be holding out well with no signs of an early arrival at this point! Hopefully I will have some good 4D pictures to post in a couple of weeks (my doctor does a free one!).....
