Lotsa Shtuff!


We had a pretty fab V-day! We thought that we had left our camera at church last week so that is why I never got around to posting! We found it in our church bag today. I'm not sure why we never thought to check there! A little too obvious?? Anyway - now I've got our Valentine pictures so I can post. I was determined to make sugar cookies with the girls this year and then deliver them to friends. I'm proud to say that we made them! Not so proud of the fact that they never made it past our kitchen and most of them ended up in my belly. Oh well. The girls had SO much fun decorating and playing with the dough! Maybe next year we will actually make the deliveries

I really wanted to make the girls a special V-day present. I decided to make them cute, little tutus!I'll be honest, the result was a little disastrous! They were way too poofy and the static cling was INSANE! They stuck to the girls like velcro!
I don't think they are going to get used much so I'm a little bummed that I wasted the time to make them. Oh well! The girls also got a love note and chocolates from Daddy and a letter and some kisses from their fairy friends. Those little mailboxes were so fun to decorate and I didn't even get very fancy with mine. I've seen some REALLY cute ones on other blogs.

I know. They don't even look like tutus. Just big blobs of tulle!
Brenan got a chocolate too...

Here is one of all of us! Pretty fancy!!

We went and got some tasty Mexican food for dinner and then went to The Children's Place and bought the kids their Easter/wedding outfits. I'm in LOVE with the girls dresses!!

Nathan is so close to being done! He has his last big test this Friday and then he just needs to focus on wrapping up a few of the required dental procedures before he graduates. His graduation is on May 17th just in case you were interested in coming!
We are planning on hopping in the car the day after and heading toward San Antonio! Here are a couple cute ones of him and Kes:
Right before bed is their favorite time to be with him because he usually swings them around in crazy ways and does horsey rides and throws them all over the place. They can't get enough of it! Sometimes I have to look away because I'm worried they are going to break something but at least they are having fun with their daddy! Nathan has fun with Brenan too! He is usually the one to bathe him at night and tonight after his bath Nathan brought him to show me his new hairdo. Check it out:
Look how long he is! He's solid and squishy all at the same time! I can't wait to see how much he weighs on the 6th. He is already in 6-12 month clothes! He's been waking up in the night and talking and talking and talking - last night I finally got up to give him his pacifier just so that he'd be quiet. It was awfully cute.Here are the best friends!

The other night Nathan was looking over an implant textbook and Anika came over and sat next to him, saw the picture and said the cutest thing.
"OoOH!! That's a GOOEY, BLOODY project!!"

Those are some great pictures! Your kids are so cute! And I've made treats for others before too and they never recieved them either....I guess I have a weakness for sweets too. Glad you guys had a fun V-day!

Making valentines day cookies is so much fun! Sprinkles, sprinkles, and more sprinkles. :) I love the tutus, they're so cute.

Wow i just wanted to reach through the computer and have one of those cookies REALLY bad. If you lived by me could I have had one? maybe next year I will make some like I have been planning every year since me and spencer got married. Lame shame. Love Brenan's hair, and I do not think those tutus are too big...I like them.
