Where we have been...

I can't believe how long this short month has felt. Would you believe that in between the last time I posted we have:

- POTTY TRAINED SIS!!! (No words can describe how strangely easy this was)
- Drove to Prineville, OR to visit G-ma and Aunt and Great G-ma and Great Aunt
- Sorted 48 cases of Girl Scout cookies
- Had numerous play dates
- Went to MOPS
- Had Fruit-Snacks G-ma & G-pa here for the weekend
- Went to the Seattle Aquarium
- Visited more than 4 parks
- Saw lots of sunshine, starting to feel lots of rain

- Started a bible study at church (40Days of Love)

- Made this delicious new Crock Pot Recipe - Cream Cheese Chicken Thing. Looks wierd but it was so good and next time I think I would throw in some sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms.

We have been busy - but it has been great fun. Can't imagine what March will bring!

Happy Valentines Day!

My suprise is finished for my two beauties - I think they are going to love it!!! If you can't tell from the picture there are love letters, a mailbox, and care packages with "cookies" in them. It was so easy make these felt toys ~ I got my pattern from here.

A New Desk

This weekend we took a trip to Home Depot (we are talking a 2 hour excursion -yikes) and came back with some wood and some "Strawberry Crush" paint. Audrey is now the proud owner of a new desk. I think it turned out really great ~ Daddy did such a good job :)
It got me to thinking - Why do we lose our desire to be surrounded by pink as we get older? Who wouldn't want to sit at a desk that exudes this much happiness? Maybe that is why there are so many disgruntled employees?

A lazy afternoon ~

I wish you could have seen the sunset we saw last night. We discovered a new park not 5 minutes from our house that is right along Lake Washington. When we got there yesterday evening the sky was so clear we could see Mt. Rainer. The girls were excited because the water turned "pinkalicious".

We do live in such a beautiful place but I have to say I miss all my beautiful family and friends. I miss the security of knowing everyone is there and sharing moments together. I am so grateful though the girls are just loving their days and each other.

Today we are enjoying our sunny lazy afternoon. They have managed to turn the whole house into their play land. Dancing through it as if there are no cares in the world...

I can not complain. Check out these items just waiting to be turn into something wonderful. I have a valentine treat planned for the girls (Pink Post Office) and a nifty little purse for myself (Fat Quarter Purse). I will be sure to share the results ~
