Here it is, the new kitchen table we have been dreaming about for years. The old table was a hand-me-down and had seen better days. Mike and I finally have all new furniture in our livingroom,dining room, and family room( it only took 9 years). Now we can work on the bedrooms and office which will probably take another 9 years! Anyway, the kids were so excited to eat dinner at the table last night and theybegged for a "fancy" dinner. This includes a table cloth, fabric napkins, candle light and most important the glass cups. They eat so much better when they feel that dinner is special. It was a fun night together.
The boy's were so happy to open their Valentine's this morning. Hyrum will get to have his first Valentine party today at pre-school. He wrote his name on 4 or 5 of the Valentine's and then he was tired so Mom got to do them all. Ethan has had his cards finished for about a week now. The antisipation has been killing him! I get to go in and help with his class party. This will be the first time I've helped this year(I'm a terrible mother!). Mike and I plan to stay home and order in dinner. We are a really exciting bunch nowdays!!!
The kids enjoyed a fun afternoon at the park a few weeks ago. We took a picnic lunch and had fun watching the boys play and Julia explore. This is yet another reason we love the California sun! Picnic in January - who would have thought it was possible!
