Valentine's Day

We had a great Valentine's Day.  It is not one of those holidays that we really celebrate.  Britt and I usually get each other a card and maybe a little something.  The kids get overloaded with candy at school and everybody is happy.  We do have one tradition that we have been doing since
Garrett was a baby.  We go eat at Chick fil a for dinner.  It is never crowded and the kids have fun playing while Britt and I get a chance to visit.  We finish the evening with ice cream.  It is really the perfect date with kids.

 Gracyn and Emmy did get to Garrett's school Valentine party.  They were very excited!

 Garrett was such a good big brother and shared his candy with Gracyn and Emmy.

 My Valentine for the past 17 years.  Wow!

Daddy Daughter Date Night and Fun Stuff

Our church hosted its first Daddy/Daughter date night last Friday evening.  Gaitley was so excited!!  We told her about it a week before and she talked about her date with Daddy all day, every day until it was time for the date.  On Friday she told me she better not eat too much chocolate that day because she didn't want to have a tummy ache on her date.  She also said that she would be back around midnight.  I loved how excited she was!  They had a great time and even had a dance to end the evening.

Gracyn has really been interested in potty training lately.  I hope she is ready.  I have been buying diapers for the last 6 years.

Britt's parents were in town a few weekends ago.  We took Carolyn to the American Girl store and then took the kids ice skating.

A Beautiful Day at the Park

The weather has been absolutely beautiful and we have been taking full advantage of it.  We spent Thursday afternoon at the park.  The kids ran and played for a full hour!

 She has been giving me this look lately when she is mad.  So funny!

 She cheered up pretty quickly.

 I did not tell her to do this.  These poses are all on her own.  She cracks me up.
