|happy Valentines Day weekend!|
|Colt is sitting up at the picnic table now and the kids love eating together outside|
I remember when the pediatrician told me my one year old should be coloring. I remember when every other toddler was coloring by my daughter wouldn't sit still long enough to even attempt to eat the crayon. She had zero interest. So now I am blown away at the love she has for coloring. Elliana also enjoys it very much--her favorite is writing with an ink pen. These girls want to color any spare moment they have. They color and they cut. And it's beautiful to see Raelynn's improvement over the past few weeks. I also love to color, so on crazy days sometime we just sit down and have some coloring time--mommy included:) It's a nice stress reliever!
The kids, to our surprise, have already outgrown the little tykes plastic swing set we got last year. So we invested in a nice wooden set that will definitely last us many more years than the last set. The swing set arrived and over the course of about 2-3 days between working and other activities, we assembled the play set. Grant and Garrett helped with some of the big stuff too which was wonderful!
Of course, while daddy is out working on assembling, mommy wanted to help him....and so did the kids. So they were put to 'work' at their picnic table!
Baking cookies with Mimi!!
Between Mimi and Papa's and Grandma and Tank's orange trees, we had a lot of very juicy oranges that were just too juicy to eat. Perfect for juicing!!
Saturday was the 30th birthday of a good friend and since she was born in the 80s, it was an 80s theme party! It was fun to dress up! Raelynn had a special day with Mimi and we took the other kids with us.
