We had a nice Valentine’s day. The days leading up to Valentine’s the kids were busy making their cards for their friends at school. They were so excited to hand them out and get cards given to them. This was Jordan when he came home from preschool the day before Valentine’s day. He asked me to take a picture of all the things he got from his friends.
On Valentine’s day we had plans to go out at night. The kids played outside for a long time that afternoon.
My mother in law was so kind to come and babysit our kids so that we could go out. We met up with Eric and Carrissa at Elmer’s to have some dinner before he headed to the annual Valentine’s dance at the church. I had some delicious crepes and yummy fries!
The first part of the dance they had a couple teach us how to do swing dancing. It was fun even though we knew most of the steps already. I wish the teaching portion of the dance could have been a little shorter but we still had time to dance after they were done. Tyler slept almost the whole time we were at the dance which was awesome. We love spending time with our friends! It was so fun to dance!
Earlier that day my visiting teacher came over and gave me these chocolate covered strawberries. They were so yummy!
Last fall sometime I heard that they had put in some new playground equipment at the Evergreen rotary park. Its located about 25 minutes from our house. They have created an accessible playground with opportunities for children with special needs to be able to play and have fun.We finally made it there and the playground is awesome! So many cool and fun things for the kids to do. We will definitely be back!
Eric got tickets for this event last fall sometime. He had been looking forward to take Nicci to this event for a long time. I was excited to help pick out a dress for Nicci to wear. I was glad that we found one in Oregon last weekend. We also got a corsage for Nicci. She loved it! They had a great time at the dance. Nicci came home telling me about all the different dances that Eric had taught her. Something about banana split dance and a “jumping” dance-haha. I love these two!! They will definitely go again next year and it will be fun when Savvy is old enough to go too!
On Friday night we went to church to celebrate Kariann’s 40th birthday! Carrissa had worked hard with planning the party, making cute decorations, preparing the food and everything. Melanie and I went a little early to help set things up. We had a chocolate fountain and I ate waaay too much food but it was sooo good! Kariann’s husband is a dj and he played awesome music! Lots of people were dancing and had fun! Kariann is such a fun, caring and awesome friend!
The kids had fun building valentine boxes at home depot today!
A few weekends ago we went and visited Sarah, Scott and their kids. We had lots of fun!! The kids loved to play with these magnetic blocks. We want to get some for the kids sometime.
Savannah had fun at her friend Chloe’s birthday party!
Musical plates. Cuties.
The school had a movie night, showing Frozen. They had fun with their friends and ate lots of popcorn.
The Thursday before the super bowl the school had a Seahawks free dress day. Go Hawks!
The kindergartners and first graders had a musical performance the other day! Lionel’s class danced to the song “Going around the mulberry bush.” Lionel is so funny. Last thing he does every morning before he leaves is to roll up his pants so that they look like he has outgrown them. You can tell in the video. Haha.

Our little Tyler guy is so sweet and we love to watch him grow. He has started to smile more and more and talks and coos back at us when we smile and talk to him. Usually he falls asleep sometime between 9-10 pm at night and wakes up to eat 2-3 times during the night…zzzz. He then usually wakes up around 7.30 in the morning. He is a pretty fast nurser so that’s been nice. He loves to take naps in the swing and to sit and look around in the bouncer. He loves to be held by all of us and loves to stand up on his little feet and look around. The doctor was very impressed how well he can hold up his head. He loves to take baths and could stay in for a very long time. He loves his pacifier and to be swaddled. I love his blue eyes and sweet little face! We are so happy he is part of our family!
