So at the beginning of the week we had lots of creativity from the kids. #1 made this neat house by the ocean complete with wave and fence.

They all brought me many bunches of flowers and ended up tying them with pretty ribbon. I received cards and the ice box and freezer are full of new pictures.

We attempted Bible study on Wednesday but ended up coming home as #3 was throwing a major fit so I took that to mean he still wasn't up to par. He seems better and yet had a really long nap today. I think this cold really took the punch right out of him.

I am excited to say that after a year(!) of not working or sometimes working we finally had our dining room light/fan repaired. We can eat with light now! woohoo!!

A valentine's day treat. Aren't they cute? I used this recipe, doubled it and used a heart cookie cutter to make it extra special. They were good although we still have leftovers as the kids and I have been sick, you know we must be sick if we can't/don't want to eat ours sweets! I think we are finally on the road to recovery though.

Dad this one is for you. Remember the tree I was talking about. When we walk out the front door this is what we see now.

Somehow the tree isn't looking as full.

I wonder why that could be?
