February 2015

Highlights from February: 

Clark had a birthday!  It was apparently very past paced, and thus blurry.  But I can tell you that we were all very happy to celebrate this amazing man in our lives.  He is wonderful.

Valentines Day!  We had heart-shaped pizza, and pulled out the tablecloth, cloth napkins, and fancy cups for the occasion.  Actually, I think we celebrated Clark's birthday and Valentine's Day the same night due to Clark's crazy work schedule.  Hence why he has the red plate. 

 Julia's V-Day cards were Star Wars themed.  We introduced our kids to Star Wars this year, and it was well received.  Julia's favorite princess is now Princess Leia, and both girls are always ready for a light saber battle.  My little nerd heart is bursting with pride.

 The local library had a traveling LEGO exhibit visit for a weekend, and it was AMAZING.  They had downtown Chicago in detail, a Simpsons Springfield section, numerous characters roaming about (Batman, Indiana Jones, Toy Story, to name a few), and my personal favorite: the stair car and model home from Arrested Development.  "You're gonna get some hop-ons."

 And finally, my kids are crazy!  We were all going a bit stir crazy by the end of February, courtesy of below freezing temperatures and Ella being restricted from the cold (she couldn't be colder than room temperature until sometime in March, thanks to that whole cold agglutinin disease mess).  Hence the trips to McDonalds (play place to the rescue!).  I don't know why Ella was wearing gloves on her feet, but it cracked me up.
