Little Bit of This & a Little Bit of That

We woke up to a beautiful new fresh blanket of snow.  I love a good snowfall.  Especially when the temps aren't frigid and I don't have to drive anywhere.  MN girl at heart!

She's got her orange spoon and some morning sunshine, happy happy
 Love Sally's creativity!
 Morning fun!
 Emma's proud of her new skill of writing her E for Emma

 "Mom, take a picture of us, we're buddies!"
 How much does this look like my brother?
 Enjoying our whirley pop, thanks Lindbergs!
 Got to pop in to celebrate an early Valentine's Day with my Kindergartener.  We celebrated on the 13th since it was Ash Wednesday on the 14th!
 Loving her Valentine Mail from De-Lo!
 Mason too! (The Bigs too, but I didn't get a chance to take a picture of them) Thanks Delores for continue to make our kiddos feel extra special! We Miss you!
 Some sunshine called for an afternoon walk with a stop at the park
 Loving the fresh air and vitamin D!
 Morning Bus patrol
 Spring is coming, had to update my centerpiece!
 Love this little Dude and love slowing down to just watching him play

Nana and Grandpa came down to celebrate Mason's birthday, hang out and watch our kiddos for us while we met up with My Sibs and their Sigs for some fun at Battle Show Game Room.  While we may not have gotten the High Score, we sure had a lot of fun!

Mason's 1st Birthday

Mason had a great time celebrating his 1st birthday!  It was filled with all of his favorites.  We like to keep it simple so the birthday person isn't rushed from thing to thing and they can enjoy their gifts and their day.

He got a turn at having a poptart like his Sisters


I think he likes it

 and then we had pizza, his favorite.

Next up was his delicious cake, compliments of Kari!




 He got mad that there wasn't anything to chew, and then he got really mad when we was  downgraded to just a piece of the cake.
