BRRRRR, BLOW and BUMMER!

And another week goes by...really? It's the middle of February all ready....I seriously feel like time is speeding by...so fast. It's been a week...filled with bitterly cold temps...lots of runny noses with the boys and 2 major mishaps!!
Fortunately, we were able to enjoy the snow before the bitter cold came. We spent a couple hours outside on Tuesday. Grant is still not a super fan of the snow...especially not being placed in the middle of the 2 ft. mounds. But...I must say it is a good way to keep him contained. Seth and his buddy Nate had fun building more forts....Grant had fun walking up and down and up and down and up and down the sidewalk....occasionally kicking the snow.



Seth and I spent a couple days making and decorating cookies for his class Valentine's Day Party.
He is a good helper...but is all about the dough and icing. His party was fun on Friday morning....they played games and loaded up on a ton of sweets...but hey, isn't that what parties are for.


Friday was also Andy's birthday. The kids and I had fun stringing streamers throughout the family room and blowing up 41 balloons....only to be reminded when Andy got home that he was 42!! Oops. I guess he just looks and acts so young. We met Andy at the Y and shot baskets in the gym before going to dinner and coming home for cake.

As you can see...Grant was much more interested in rearranging the pots and pans than getting a photo with his dad.



A raspberry cheesecake for daddy's choice...a left over frozen pie we found in the freezer for Seth!


Saturday...basketball in the morning and breakfast with Cathy, Ted and my mom (my dad was at a science show). Then...Cathy and Ted took Seth to a b-ball game and we then met them after Grant's nap and the boys went home with Grandma. DATE NIGHT AGAIN! Woo Hoo!
We had dinner at Smokey Bones (yummy...but we had to wait over 30 minutes) and then to see The King's Speech. It was very good...Andy loved it. Then coffee and V-day shopping for the boys.
Oh yeah, I mustn't forget our electronic woes of the week I spent Thursday morning checking out how to fix a broken laptop screen that Grant stood on... and will probably spend Monday morning checking into fixing a camera that Seth pulled off the counter! Oh the joys of boys!

seriously Krista....your screeen got stepped on too! Mine did too the first of this week! So, we were told at Best Buy it would cost more to fix than to buy a new one. So, that is what we did but got lots of good use out of the old one too. Yes, who knew boys could be so rough and tough! HA! :)

I can't believe you put the kid's names on all the cookies. You're such a good mom! I just stuck names on a bag of m&m's!

All that snow looks fun...but, oh too cold for me!
