It's a bedtime tradition that began with Little Nutbrown Hare, and each night we try to outdo the last...I love you to the moon and the beach and the mountians...and one of my favorites, "to Jesus and the angels" and back...We never imagined we would be saying, I love you to Africa and seems like the furthest imaginable place, but yet in God's perfect timing, we plan to go.... to Africa and back!!! And when we get back, we will have another little cheek to kiss goodnight...please keep us in your prayers and enjoy this journey with us!

This month has been full of parties! We started off with a Valentine's Day party at school. Emmaline thought it was so fun to have me there to watch her! We started the party with cupcakes then had free time to dance to silly music. Now when I drop her off in the mornings she wants me to sit down in the little chair next to her like I did at the party and watch her eat her memories!
I got one quick picture between "dances"
We have started to have Sabbath lunch together with our friends alternating between houses. It makes mealtime a lot more fun to be able to just hangout and let the kids run around afterwards and not worry making too much noise!
Saturday night before Valentines Day we all got together at our house to decorate Valentines cookies. We had a lot of fun being creative and watching the kids experiment with creativity! Some definitely did more eating than decorating!
You can see that Emmaline had to do her decorating/tasting while wearing her princess dress!

"I do it myself!" What a big girl!
The four of them got the giggles while trying to take this picture, it was so cute...I would have loved to catch video of them laughing
Attending a 1st birthday party for Kylie, a friend from church. What a big party!

Face painting at the party: Emmaline wanted kitty whiskers, "like Avery".
Curious kitties

Worn out!

Hope everyone is doing well and I'll try to update the blog again soon with more pictures from the last couple of weeks. We've had a really busy month!
