Valentine's Day 2015

Valentine's Day is a favorite holiday at our house!  Ellington was soooo excited for the Valentine party at school!  Unfortunately, Finley missed out because she was at home with double pneumonia. :(  Thankfully my mom was able to come and stay with us so I could work that week....especially since I missed so many work days bc of winter weather!  

Ellington with her bag...ready to load it up! :)

Ellington's teacher, Mrs. Belinda, always has the CUTEST doors!

A great thing about working in preschool is that I can always sneak away to their rooms whenever I want to!  I will miss that next year when Ellington is in kindergarten. 

Ellington was SO excited to look through her bag!

I was so excited that Valentine's Day fell on a Saturday so that Robert could be with us all day!  We decorated the table and got the girls a few surprises.

We normally don't do such "big" gifts for Valentine's but we discovered on Christmas Eve (at Big Bob and MiMi's) how much Ellington loved legos!  We obviously couldn't get her any for Christmas at that point and her bday isn't until October so we decided to get her some for Valentine's Day.  She LOVES them!!!

Finley got some animals and a book!

Chef Daddy made a super special Valentine breakfast for Ellington. :)

I don't remember what we did all day (ha!) but I don't think it was much since Finley was still recovering from being sick.  We are so thankful for our SWEET little Valentine's!

An Icy/Snowy Winter

We had such an icy/snowy winter! We had several ice/snow storms come through. The first couple were fun...but after awhile it got old. :) We ended up missing 4 days of school which is a lot considering we only go 2 days a week. Robert was off several days of work over the course of the winter but of course I didn't mind that one bit!  Ellington LOVED the snow!  One day we went to her cousins house to sled and I am pretty sure that was one of the best days of her life!

I realize Finley isn't super's because 1) We don't have appropriate winter clothing and 2) She was only out for a few minutes :)  Ellington on the other hand was dressed to PLAY PLAY PLAY!

Mississippi snow man!

One day we brought the snow in and the girls LOVED it!  I think they played in this spot for over an hour..which is kind of major for them!  We just refreshed their snow as it melted.

We had some fun family days together but are very thankful that we don't live where so much ice and snow is the norm!

In Winter We Wear.....Pajamas??!!

Hey hey! Long time no blog.  Winter was long and Spring has been much welcomed.  When I went back through my pictures of Jan-Mar I mostly found pictures of the girls at pajamas!  Ha.  That pretty much sums up our winter.  Lots of playing at home in jammies!  

Finley loooooves sitting at Ellington's little art table.  We have to keep a close eye on her while she is there though! :)

On this particular day Ellington was working on making cookies and a cookie stand.

Open for business!

She had quite the line waiting for her yummy cookies!

She rang her cowbell to let everyone know she was open for the day! :)  Loooove her imagination!

Two little monkeys jumping in the bed!

I LOVE these sweet moments!

Finley posed like this and kept saying "cheeeeese".  I asked her if she wanted me to take her picture and she said "uh huh!".  Crazy girl!

This is one of my

The good news about having a boring winter is that it won't take me long to get caught back up!  Hopefully more posts coming SOON! :)
