Farewell February

It seems as if the days are flying ever so swiftly. Ray and I stay busy with our work and the responsibilities that they entail. Then on top of that being parents to girls that are involved in dance, gymnastics, and soon to be basketball we have to schedule date nights just to make sure we get some time for adult conversation! We love it and would not have it any other way.

February brought with it birthday celebrations for some of our nieces and nephews. We were blessed to be able to help our nephew Zeth celebrate his special day at our house. Pictures of that to come soon.

We our now comfy and settled in our new place. The girls love it and enjoy running and playing in the large yard. We have established our routines and we are happy to be back in the swing of things.

Ray and I are working hard to stay active with the girls, exercising, walking etc... We are dedicated to eating the majority of our meals at home to save money as well control the quality of the food that we eat. This has given us more quality time with the girls and they are the ones that bless our food at meal time : )

Emma had her first disagreement with a friend from dance that she considers to be her BFF. This resulted in her talking out the situation with her Dad during the 10 minute ride home, then talking to me about it when she got home, then talking to her Nana about it the next day. Needless to say she had forgotten about the situation by the next dance class.

Emma has hit a growth spurt resulting in the need to purchase new tap shoes, ballet shoes, and tights.

Both girls continue to amaze us with different things as they grow. Their language is extensive, showing the mastery of words that kids older than them have not mastered. They are both inquisitive and the questions have started with Why? What is that? How does that work? What was that noise? They also point out various things to us and have showed us that they understand cause and effect relationships of various forms.

We say farewell to February and look forward to making precious memories with our girls in March.
