catching up (personal)

Well, it's time to catch up on some personal pictures from our family! There have been a few fun times and some tiny milestones in our house that I wanted to share! Here goes...

Don't be fooled...this little boy is NOT potty-trained! But he is trying!!! He still wears a diaper, but on a few occasions, he'll choose his adorable little boy underwear and go on the potty! Hip, hip, hooray! It's a start!...



Then it was Brogan's Valentine party at school. He got all dressed up, and had his special party. We stole this super-cute banana idea from an old magazine and a friend!...





Then our Mothers of Preschoolers group had a Valentine Craft activity up at the church. We had playdough and discovery tubs to play with for the kids. We also made hand-print Valentine pictures to take home, but even better, we made these very special Valentine cards to share! On Valentine's Day, the boys and I took them to the local hospital and passed them out to the patients. It's one of the most rewarding things, to see those patients' faces light up when the boys walked in the rooms with glitter-covered cards! Can't wait to do that again next year!...



Earlier on Valentine's Day, my handsome hubby ran the half marathon in Austin! It was his 3rd half marathon, and it was his best time yet!!! I was so proud of him because of his dedication to training and his motivation to go out there and do it! (And a special thanks to our friends, Chad & Kelley, for having us stay the night in your beautiful home the night before!!!) Here's my hero...







Last weekend, I had the opportunity to spend the weekend away with 18 of my girlfriends on the lake!! It was my MOPS retreat, and we had one of the best weekends ever!!!! I'll start with the most annoying picture from the weekend that some of those girlies will laugh at, and some of them will sigh! ;) So, here we go with the leaves...and the pretend little boy legs sticking up out of them!...







The goats and tiny baby goat hanging out on the island...



Oh, and I just have to inlcude this awful picture from that girls' weekend...the flooded bathroom! It was our only catastrophy of the weekend, but it was a yucky one!...(And thank you a million times to the Campbells who own the home across the street for letting us girls into your home!!!)...



I was very excited to get home and see my three tiny boys!! They spent the weekend with Daddy in what they called "Boys' Weekend!" And they ended the weekend with getting to spend special time with Daddy again "shaving!"...











Lastly, the boys and I made sugar cookies this week because it was too darn cold outside to go out! It was a HUGE mess, but a ton of fun!...







So, there you go! All caught up! And it DID end up snowing today, but of course, I don't have those pictures downloaded yet...so they'll be posted at a later date! Thanks for looking!!!
