I felt like last week we finally got back into our routine after all the holiday craziness. Of course one holiday was over and we started thinking about the next, Valentine's Day. To early? Nah, never...I put up our Valentine's tree in Audrey's room. I bought this white tree at Family Dollar a couple of years ago when our town was shut down for a week due to 6 inches of snow. Yep, I just said that, how southern does that make me. Not sure what was so funny about that, the fact that our town still has a Family Dollar and I actually went and found something that was worth buying or the fact our town was shut down from 6 inches of snow. But, it was right after Christmas and Ray and I really wanted to put together a puzzle while we were shut in for the week. Of course the only place open was the Family Dollar and they had no puzzle, but they did have this wonderful white tree leftover from Christmas for a mere 4 dollars!! Ray was thrilled, let me tell you!! It cured my boredom for a second, until I realized that the local Hobby Lobby was of course closed and even if it wasn't there was no way these southern people were trekking the five miles to get there in the blizzard. So I had to wait until later to decorate but none the less that is the story of how we came up with this Valentine's Day tree.
Sweet girl also took a ride in the Bob without the adapter for the first time last week!! She loved it so much we may have wheeled it right on in the house after our walk where she continued to sit for awhile.
My big girl also tried rice cereal for the first time last week! She is growing too fast. She loved it the first time but hasn't been too thrilled with it since and I will admit it I am not either. I think we are going to move on to sweet potatoes pretty soon. Ray of course used our video camera to capture the event but I haven't yet downloaded it so hopefully I will do that soon and add it back into this post. Somehow though our video camera (we just got it for Christmas and haven't really figured it all out yet) took these still pictures as well.
Modeling one of their pillow case dresses that Paige's Aunt Jodi made for them!! They are pretty precious!
