Valentine Day Flowers

My family knows that I like flowers. I have received flowers for Valentines a few times, but I think this is the best bouquet of flowers that I was ever surprised with.

The kids have been working in secret since Friday. They even used a flowery smelling lotion inside them, so they smell like roses!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Going Outside

Ever since Megan was born I have taken her outside. She loves being out, even in the cold!

If we take a walk, she is bundled facing me.  She almost always falls asleep on our walk. Today though, she wanted to watch the kids go sledding, so she was facing out for the first time. As you can tell from this picture Allan took, she really liked it!

Megan

Megan is growing quickly! She is able to hold her head up better. She loves to follow and watch people. It is so much fun watching her eyes tracking whatever she is looking at.

Her hair is starting to thin out. I should say, fall out! It is very strange to find pieces of black hair wherever she has been.

Megan had her first major cold. She had a 101 fever this weekend and was very congested. We are very thankful that God healed her quickly. Babies and fevers are not a good mix. While she is still not feeling her best, she is almost better. We love seeing her smiles again.

Because of her cold, her voice sounds funny. Mark thinks she sounds like a penguin (Gorp! Gorp!) and has her dressed in white and navy, like a penguin.

Red Birds

While at the park today for Adrian’s Science Class, the bird feeder was a major distraction.  The birds and squirrels were very active this morning. The kids even got to see a Red Tailed Hawk close by.

Matthew 6:26 (NASB) Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

Spa Day

Allan thought that I needed some spoiling.  So he treated me to a “day” at the “spa”.  It was a lot of fun.  I got my hands and ankles henna’d and a pedicure.  Isn’t Allan wonderful?
