A Little Picture Catch-Up

I have a little picture catching-up to do from the last couple days.

These two.  
Ashby:  Go Bo!
Bowen:  Ashby, you’re too big.
(I should add they were going up-hill.) 🙂  ha!

I got to attend this kid’s Valentine Party at school on Friday.  He was a little pumped about it.

Tab headed to Ebby Lee’s party and I got to stop by for just a minute.  They were playing a fun little game.  Shoot cupid’s arrow (q-tip) into a heart-shaped bowl through a straw.

Friday night we had dinner out and then headed to the Valentine’s Dance at school with these crazy six.  They had the BEST time!  Bowen was over it rather quickly and halfway through Nixon said, “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do.”  Welcome to dances, Nixon!  ha!

At least one person was blurry in every. single. picture I took!

 A family selfie-with an extra little friend.

 This years dance was a huge success!

After Nixon’s basketball game we hit up our favorite furniture store to do a little browsing.

Then this happened.  I hadn’t felt too great the last couple of days, but I kept blaming it on my sinuses.  Finally Saturday afternoon I headed to an Urgent Care and I had strep!  Saturday night, I was stuck in bed and my valentine took care of everything.  So thankful for him!

I’ll have more Valentine pictures coming soon.  That Family Valentine Dinner still happened and was a hit!

    "I don't know what I'm supposed to." That's hysterical. At our dance, Luke and Carter stood in the corner for a good 20 minutes and talked Pokemon cards. Ha! 🙂
