Hello all! We have been very busy around here, so I'll spare you the big introduction and just get on with it!

On Wednesday, Emily's school took the kids on a field trip to the local library. Emily really enjoyed all the stories the librarian read and we checked out a book about sisters before we left!

As usual, Gracie was all over the place!

Thursday, we had to get Emily's Valentines ready for the big party on Friday. She was very particular about each Valentine and wrote her name on each one of them. She is a total Type-A personality in some ways!

Party day at school is always an adventure! 21 kids and a few brothers and sisters sprinkled in, all hopped up on sugar is really a site to behold! But a fun time was had by all!

Emmy showing Gracie the love!

Gracie snagged a juice box before I could get to her. Thankfully it was her sister's!

Em playing with Kynleigh

Snow!!!!! Em and Claire watching it fall. She couldn't wait to get outside to play in it.

When we got home from the party, I laid Gracie down for a nap and let Em rest a little before we went out. Thankfully Chris got home which made playing in the snow much more fun!

When Gracie woke up, we headed outside. She looks all happy in the beginning, but it didn't take long for that to change. She didn't like being all wet and her poor baby hands were so cold. She didn't last very long, but Emily and Chris stayed out for about 2 hours!

We all had to get our picture with the snowman.

Chris had made reservations for us at the Classic on Noble for Valentine's Day, but with the weather, we didn't get to make it. He ran to the store and picked up a few steaks (which is Emily's favorite) and that was our Valentine's dinner. Hopefully we'll get to go out just the two of us next weekend, but we had the best time as a family.

Saturday after everything melted, we hit the mall. Saturday was kind of a rough day because the kids just couldn't find their happy place! But we made the most of it. Here are the girls riding the carousel.

We hope you all had a great Valentine's Day. We sure did.
