I can hardly believe that we have completed another
month of this year. They all seem to be flying by so quickly.
On a bright note, though; spring will be here before
we know it. As you know, I am a warm weather girl so I am
looking forward to spring.
As I did in January, I wanted to recap our happenings for February.
February 1: I finally got to my craft area and managed to whip up this
pillow. I love the way it turned out.
February 2: This is our calico, Trinity. We adopted her from
a local animal shelter 2 1/2 years ago. So far, she has been a great cat.
February 3: Victoria decided she wanted a rainbow cake for her birthday.
After doing some research, I learned that it really wouldn't be that hard.
You can see the end result here.
February 4: Today our daughter turned 13. THIRTEEN!!! When did that
happen. We are just beside ourselves that she is a teenager.
Let me just tell you; she has that teenage attitude to go right along with it.
February 5: Victoria had some fiends over for her birthday. Here is a slice
of the finished rainbow cake. It was yummy!!
February 6: As if Victoria turning thirteen wasn't evough; two days later, Trency turned 20.
I don't care what anyone says, I'm not old enough to have a child
who is 20!!
February 7: Basketball hasn't even ended and we are already gearing
up for baseball. Our team goes to an indoor facility to practice
when it is too cold outside. This isn't a great picture
because it's inside and I was taking it with my phone.
February 8: Victoria was looking exceptionally cute today so
I tried to do a photo shoot with her. I should have known better.
You can see all the pictures here.
February 9: Zachary was doing his homework and I just
loved how his snack coincided with his book and the sofa.
February 10: More snow. Really!! I'm already sick of it
from the 6 inches we got in January. Luckily, this one didn't stick
around for long. We only got a dusting.
February 11: I had to get out of the house so I visited my favorite
antique mall. I can always find something I need there.
February 12: Our very first baseball tournament of the season.
It was cold but we had a great time. Zachary got to work on his
February 13: I volunteered to bring in the icing for Zachary's classes Valentine
party. His teacher said I was the first mom ever to bring homemade icing to
her class for the cookies she makes the kids to decorate
every year. It really isn't that hard.
February 14: Happy Valentines Day!
The party in Zachary's class was so much fun.
February 15: Zachary had a very stubborn baby tooth that
didn't want to come out. I had to take him to an oral surgeon to
have it removed. He wrote this letter to the tooth fairy: "Dear Tooth Fairy, I had my
tooth pulled from my mouth and I would like $20 please because
it hurt". How sweet is that?
February 16: I have been looking at these magazine
holders for months. I just couldn't make myself pay $7, $8 or $10 for them.
I found these at Office Depot for $1. At that price, I got 3.
February 17: I was sitting outside waiting for Zachary's bus.
The sun felt so good shining on my face. It reminded me that spring is coming.
February 18: I was invited to assist Victoria's class with their
frog dissection. I figured I better jump at the opportunity, it's not everyday
you are invited into a middle school classroom.
February 19: Hubby and I have been working on this cupboard for months.
We finally got the doors finished and attached.
I love how it turned out.
February 20: It is no secret that I love to read. I have read a few things by Debbie Macomber and eally wanted to read her Cedar Cove Series. I finally picked up the 1st book about 2 weeks ago. I just finished book 4 today. They are really good and I can't seem to put them down. I'm always so anxious to find out what happens in the next book. If you are looking for a great read; go check these out of your local library. Or buy them, whatever; just read them!
February 21: Before I sent some recipes to my mother for her Reunion cookbook, I had to test one and make sure it was good. It is. Chocolate Chip Scones. You can find the recipe here.
February 22: A bunch of us moms from baseball started playing this game.
It's called Words With Friends and is so addicting.
February 23 & 24
Ooops....... guess I didn't get a picture these days. Apparently, nothing happened.
February 25: Another trip to Office Depot scored me these pens.
I just love the colors. Reminds me of the beach and spring and summer.
I told you I was a warm weather girl!!
February 26: Zachary had his second baseball tournament of the season.
It was much warmer this time around.
February 27: It was a 2 day tournament. He got to catch during this
game and had a great hit all the way to the fence.
February 28: I don't know where we found the time, but my husband
hung another shelf for me in my craft room. My hope was
to get my scrapbooking table cleaned off so I could get busy working on
Well, that's about it for February. Be sure to tune in to see where March takes us.
