"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

Imagine Children’s museum

We went to the Imagine Children’s museum in Everett last Saturday. It was such a fun place for the kids to play at. They had three stories with lots of different rooms with fun activities for them to do. For dinner we had some food at a pizza place down by the Edmonds ferry. It was a fun day!

Valentines day!

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!

Evergreen park

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!

Harry Potter!

Eric and I got all the Harry Potter movies for Christmas. We just finished the last movie last week. We had already watched them before but it was so fun to watch them again. I love the Harry Potter series!!

Daddy/daughter dance

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!

Kariann’s birthday party

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 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.

Tyler 2 months

2 month stats:

Weight: 13 lbs 1 oz 75th%

Height: 24 inches 90%

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!
