Okay, starting today. Not much to say really, pretty average day. But yesterday was special for this reason alone.
This girl brings me crazy amounts of happiness. I love her to teeny tiny pieces.
Before that we had some birthday’s to celebrate. I made a cake for one, (my sweet neighbor turning 16)
and green eggs for the other, (Dr. Seuss of course)
Unlike myself, Jake likes to keep his birthdays simple, so the kids and I made up a list of games to play for the birthday party after he got home from work, and then we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Yum! He took the next day off so we kept the celebration going throughout the weekend. Ending with another trip to Tucanos….I’m sick of the place now. Too much meat!
And before that, we went to Portland to check out Heidi’s new digs. And boy are they nice! :)
These pictures make me a teeny bit sad. Can I come back please? The time was spent eating, and playing games mostly. Because that’s what we do best! I also spent a lot of time running up and down stairs. Heidi has her own gym now. Oh, and we got to skype our most awesome sister Heather. That’s her. She’s in Africa changing the world
Before that, we celebrated Valentines day. I was going to do an cute tutorial post on how to make my fun Valentines, but then I realized that I’m not really a tutorial kind of girl, so I didn’t. But I got some cute pictures out of the deal. So here it is, a month late.
First, you have to get the perfect picture. That took twice with Sage.
Then doll the picture up using Photoshop
Then have the kiddos place the sucker through the picture, and tape the back and tada!
Cute little 3D valentine. We made these last year too, and they are always a big hit.
We also had a fantastic little party with some friends to end our Valentines night. It was wonderful.
And now I’m caught up! I wish I could catch the blogging bug again, because I sure miss it.
