We had super bowl fun at Bucky's house of course. Fun times! I won the stats page game. Yea
Tried out a new recipe for the snack we brought. Bacon cups. You make a bacon shell for your deviled eggs. Turned out ok, but not the wow I had hoped for.
This month I had decided that I had had enough of our blah bedroom. I hated the color and the carpet and things always get put off....So, I took it upon myself to start a project.
My sleepy-eyed boy
I've been our looking for future ideas. I found and love these two toned cabinets!
Also adored this chair at Pier One
My big boy eating at the table
Addie helped me with our heart shaped brownies
I made heart brownies for Corbin's Valentines party in class and also my bunco ladies! I hosted bunco this month and we had breakfast food. Yummo!
Adaline and Matt had their first date! Matt took Addie to our father daughter dance at church. So precious.
Matt said that she danced all night. You couldn't get her to sit very long for dinner.
My sis, Lydia, and I took a road trip to Nashville, TN. As a special time for us I treated her to this trip for her 16th birthday! We went shopping at Opryland Mills Mall, ate at Red Lobster (our favorite)...
then headed downtown for the TobyMac Winter Slam. Well, the bad news is that we didn't get into the concert.
We walked around downtown a bit...
Here is Lydia in front of the CMT building
I cannot believe that my baby sister is 16! I really feel like Lydia's mom most of the time. We are 18years apart and my mom and I are 18 years apart. So, we had a great time with no little kids running around to catch up and reconnect. Lydia has really changed right before my eyes these last two years. She is not a little girl anymore and totally acts like an adult. She is driven to go off to college and become an interior designer. I know she will be great at whatever she chooses to do. I am happy she wants to go away to school and try new things.
I failed to get these apple cider donuts made in time for my bunco night. (there was plenty of food) So I made them the next morning for my gang at home. Yummo! I loved them. Definitely will make again.
Adaline and her bible study teacher Valerie. Addie has had her for 2 years and loves her class. This was also on Valentines Day! She signed cards to take to her friends.
Matt surprised me with dinner at the Melting Pot. I don't know what on earth we had to talk about for such a long dinner. Ha ha
Another highlight to our February was a family wedding. You know you hear adults say what kids they are getting married and commenting on how kids growing up and doing things seems so young? I didn't feel that way when I got married, but I was 23. Kendra, my cousin, married her high school sweetheart. Kendra is 20 and Ben will turn 20 this spring. Wow! These two did seem like a couple of kids getting married. So young.
Sorry this was the best pic I got of the bride and groom.
Jenny and Brian: Jenny and I have grown up together. I feel like we are more sisters than cousins. Family is so important. I am so happy to know and share my life with this sweet lady. :)
Kendra, the bride, and Jenny her older sis.
I came from teaching my cooking class with 3/4th graders. Missed the ceremony but happily participated in the reception with my plain Jane clothes.
Mother of the Bride: Marvena looks so nice, Loved her hair and dress today.
Last note of the month: Aiden was sick for a few days. He had a low grade fever Saturday night and being his age and teething on and off, I didn't know how or if he was sick. But Sunday when we were all getting ready for church Aiden just laid on the couch and looked so pitiful. Yes, he is sick and not feeling well. I stayed home with him and just held and cuddled with him.
Aiden is my sweet boy. Matt hasn't corrupted him like the other children. He still loves his mommy best.
