this post is totally random and is more for my sake to remember
we started the month off with mild temps and matching vests
i have no idea why they were out of school on a school day and why i splurged and let them get frapuccinos
my mom threw a surprise luncheon for me for my birthday, that is also the last time i give her my phone to take pictures, they all came out blurry. it was so nice of all my nearest and dearest to take time out of their busy schedules to shower me with love.
her and i have been playing a lot of phase 10, i only let her win a couple of hands, but now i show no mercy. we have been playing so much that even matt asked to play with us one night.
we celebrated my birthday with my parents at da francescas, lucky for us kids eat free on mondays, and the waitress clearly didn't know how to focus the camera
champ wrote a very sweet and sentimental poem for a project in school
he also totally crushed the valentines game this year, i totally nailed the overachiever award this year
35 i was all sorts of emotions, luckily my husband knows the way to my heart is cupcakes and overpriced perfume
every night she asks to read before bed, every night i go peek in on her and this was how i found her, this girl has a love for look and find books and snoopy
cupcakes and coffee for breakfast, followed by coffee and cake pops for lunch - mother of the year
viv has a love for ALL babies, especially my friend Danielle's little peanut Valentino. he is such a doll, Viv held him the majority of the kids valentines parties, which let Danielle and I goof around at the kids parties.
Matt has been traveling a ton this month, so one saturday we got out of the house for a little adventure that included a trip to 168 asian market, they love the dead roasted ducks (not) and really loved walking behind the fish counter to see live crabs, snails, frogs, eel and even shark
i am convinced this child is on a mission to try out every public restroom.
she is in front of the one at the asian market in this picture, but she also used home depot's that day as well
matt was gone 2 Sundays this month, so we went and hung out at my parents after church, thank god for a little sanity over there which included my favorite childhood snack, apples with lemon and cinnamon on them
We might have played hooky on one of my treatments on a Friday which meant we had to make an unscheduled appointment on a Monday, we brought toys to play with, which we never do, I have no idea why I never thought to do that before, her friends kept her occupied the entire time! Praise the sweet jesus
his birthday eve - insert big ball of tears
hit up airtime with friends on the first day of winter break
his birthday (more here)
We did Detroit Dart Club that night, i have all sorts of love for this lady, my Amy, my person!
I have been working on a couple of miscellaneous projects
a blanket for a new baby
a new dishcloth
we closed out winter break seeing Kung Fu Panda 3 - we were the only ones in the theatre which made talking and laughing and playing musical chairs really fun, and playing on my phone nice.
