Happy Valentine's Day!


Snowman-struck
Our little valentine


Is that lipstick or frosting??




As you can see, we got a little snow on Valentine's weekend. Micah enjoyed a party at daycare with his friends on Friday--parents got to come, too! He is sporting a scratch on his face right now, courtesy of another child in his class, but I guess he'll live. We made a snowman in the front yard (see video below). Micah was pretty excited about that since the only snowmen he had made before that were out of playdough. He kind of looked at me funny when I told him we could make one out of actual snow and then he wanted to touch the snow without his gloves on. That convinced him to put them back on! And of course, the highlight of the weekend was the chocolate heart we let him eat on Sunday morning :-) "Mmmm, good heart!"

Improvements








video

As you can see, we finally got around to making some more improvements on the house! We purchased curtains for the living room and our bedroom--haven't hung the valances yet. And we painted the living room and dining rooms--the dining room is a brick red color underneath the chair rail. The above part and all of the living room is a light tan-yellow color. Now all we have left to finish is the den, the master bathroom and all the trim. It seems a little more like our house now! I also included this cute video of Dan and Micah playing with his car set. Micah is saying "cheese" to the camera and showing everyone his trucks. We've all been ill these last couple of weeks, but are recovering. Hopefully, this will be the last of the winter blahs and we can get on with life!
