February Activities

I have felt bad that I haven't been posting like I used to.  I really have enjoyed blogging not only because I can share my life and make new friends, but also because it's a good way to record or "journal" my family's life!  So I'm going to get better at it again, even if I have to do these "month in review" type posts.  So here's how February went:

After Gary's super fun birthday came Valentine's Day.  I absolutely LOVE holidays, because of the traditions I can share with my kiddos that creates lasting memories!  The kids and I created our own Valentine cards to give out to
 friends at Liv's preschool.  The kids used their thumb prints to make hearts!  On the actual day we decorated sugar cookies and made bookmarks to take to our neighborhood friends.  The kids loved it and I loved watching them, especially their excitement when the delivered them!

That night Todd took me out to the a Ballroom Gala put on by the SUU Ballroom Dance Team.  It was a formal occasion with a really yummy dinner!  The team put on a performance and then there was a live band so that all could dance.  It was slightly intimidating to get on the floor with a bunch of people who actually knew what they were doing... but in the end we had SO MUCH FUN!

Later in the month the kids and I headed to salt lake so we could watch Aaron star as Maxwell Smart in the play Get Smart at his high school.  He was a hoot!  I love watching him act, he always seems to be cast just right... the goofy
 characters!  He did a great job!  That same weekend we celebrated his 17th birthday.  It's hard to believe my littlest little brother his 17!  We had a great dinner with the family at Linda's house which was fabulous until we had to pack
 up and head home.  February was a wonderful month full of fun times and a lot of growth!

Your hair is getting long!! Sounds like you had a great month. We still need to play one of these days. . . Life needs to slow down for a minute. . .

It seems like everyone isn't blogging as much as they used to. I don't know if everyone has just gotten crazy busy or the idea of it's just not as exciting anymore.

It was fun to see a post from you! It looks like you've been up to fun activities. You and your hubby look so cute all dressed up.

Please come and check out my blog when you have a moment. I have been working on a cool project! :)

Busy busy! You have such a cute family. I would love to dress up and go to a dance with my hubby.
When is your dad getting married?
