crazy love

Our February has been fabulous so far. We are Valentine crazy over here.

Ellie had to make a valentine box for a school contest. Here's her final love monster;

She WON!!

These were her Valentines this year. She helped make about 3 of them and then said that she was giving up because "obviously you have to have three hands to do this."

These are Connor's army guy Valentines.

I love these! May even do them again next year.


And since Macie is everything cowgirl, we made these cute guns with holsters.


I really have started to love this Holiday more and more. We even started a new tradition with a mailbox Valentines morning at breakfast.

I love being their mom!

birthday in bend

Bend has become our new favorite getaway place. I have been up in Bend a few times in the last few months for different things and this weekend my mom and I surprised Julie and whisked her up there for a weekend of being spoiled for her 29th Birthday.

(See her surprised face!)

We missed Laur Laur the whole time. :( move here!

We have a favorite hotel there that is right in the center of everything we needed. Food, IMAX theater, and shopping!


To be honest..we all could have stayed in the hotel the entire weekend and would have been just as happy as ever.


The gym and pool are open 24 hours,comfy beds, the breakfast rocks, and they have warm chocolate chip cookies and cocoa for you when you walk in. Plus we got to smooch on this little chunk.....

We love you Leelou!!

And it is apparent from this photo that you love us right back, right?
