Jacob and Ada

Our friends the Bighams came over one night for dinner. They have a daughter around Ethan's age and a daughter 3 months older than Jacob named Ada. They are really cute together. Thought I'd share a few pics of them.

Ada checking Jacob for head lice. Just like the monkeys do! :)

I'm not a big Valentine's Day person. Never have been. But I'm always lucky enough to get flowers. The hubby never fails to surprise me with flowers and a treat. He is so sweet to always think of me on this "love day". What was even better? He got me sugar free chocolate. He know's I'm trying to eliminate sugar for a while, so he thought that would be good. He's sweet. Even though I'm also trying to watch my fat intake and these chocolates are far from being low fat, the thought was really sweet and a chocolate once in a while won't hurt right? :) Thanks honey! Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

Jumpin' Monkey

Here's a fun little place we went a few days ago when it was rainy and cold. It's an indoor "jump house" place for kids! The kids enjoyed themselves! They wore them selves right out! :)

Cute Ashton. Tired and sweaty! :)


Ashton smashed his finger with a large stick/branch while playing outside. He is proud of his injury and wanted to make sure I took ample documentation of it! :) Here are some fun pics of his fingernail!
bye bye nail! Weren't those pics great? ;)

Jacob Walking!

My 10 month old has decided to start walking! It's bitter sweet for me since he's our last child. He just grew up so fast! But we are excited to watch him grow and develop. He is such a joy to have in our home! The older kids are having a blast watching him learn to walk! Here are a few pics and a couple videos at the bottom of our newest walker! (oh and he's wearing Ashton's socks, that's why his feet look even bigger than they already are!) ha ha!

Citizen of the Month

Ashton was awarded "Citizen of the Month" at school for the month of January. We were so proud of him! You have to work pretty hard and be really good to be chosen out of the class. There is a child chosen from each grade level each month. They first got to eat a cupcake and drink some juice, then they were given their awards. We are so proud of you Ashton! Way to go!!!
When Ethan heard that Ashton got it, he said "Wow! Way to go Ashton! I've been trying for 2 years to get that award!" And that is saying something because Ethan is REALLY good in school.
Enjoying his treat with the other kids.
He's so proud! :)
His Certificate (which they spelled his name wrong. owell!) :)

Here is the video of the Principle Dr. Spivey giving him his award! We love you Ashton! ♥

More Snow Fun

Here are a few more pics of our snow adventure. Since we don't own snow sleds, we used our boogie boards as sleds! Pretty fun!

Our backyard

Even Jacob enjoyed a turn! :)
