Happy Valentines Day!

Got to love a day to celebrate LOVE!

Good morning to my most favorite people in the entire world!! I love our tradition of making Valentines Breakfast!!!

.... delicious!

The boys had fun putting together their Valentines for their friends. Gar decided to do a toy this year instead of candy. It was a big hit!

Valentine, you make my heart bounce!

Conner's went something like this...... Someone has a CRUSH on you!

Zander made little Super hero Valentines this year.

Have a Super Valentines Day

Niel took me out to celebrate a day of love. He sent me roses to work and told me to bring them home because we would need them for the night. He took me to my old work place, Courtyard at Jamestown, where we passed out roses to as many people as we could find. It was fun to watch the expressions on their faces. They were so happy to get a flower. Then we went to the mall and people watched. We looked for people who were in love..... or hanging out together. It was a super fun night! We even went to Chick-fil-a, which is my favorite! We had a fun time out together!

Birthday Dinner!

We have lots of family members with Birthdays in the month of February. I wish we could get together separately for each birthday, but it didn't turn out that way. So.... we all got together and celebrated with one big event.

Happy birthday to Patrick, Brooke, and Grandpa Dean!

... oh and Happy Anniversary to my Mom and Dad!!! 37 years is something to celebrate!

We have been keeping busy with plenty of things (as usual)!

Gar and Zander have been working hard in school. They both have made our family ATEAM activity every week. Way to go boys!!! In order to go on the ATEAM activity, they have to have very good grades. They choose dinner at Pizza Pie Cafe!

Stocky has had many school projects. He completed his science project and also a project on a famous person. He picked Arnold Schwarzenegger as his famous person. He did an excellent job of getting everything done.

Conner had the assignment of putting together a picture of all his favorite things. I thought he was pretty creative. This pretty much describes Conner. I thought this also captured the fun, well - rounded person he is!

Niel has been doing lots of things around the house lately. I have really appreciated all the new, exciting home improvements he have all got to enjoy as a family. Thanks Niel!

Super Bowl 2012

We had a little family Super Bowl party! This year the Giants and the Patriots were playing each other. Our family was split.... Conner, Garrett, and Stocks were all cheering for The Giants. Niel and Zander were cheering for The Patriots. It was a VERY good game. In the end, the Giants won!

We had plenty of good food to eat!

We even played a fun little game with candy. The boys really liked it!

Zander was super sad his team didn't win. I love it that he is so passionate about football. It made the whole night lots of fun!
