Random February Pictures

Feb. 1st.
Cleaning out the school area (kitchen).
I was getting frustrated with all the time I waste looking for our books. I decided to take all the curricula that we were not using out.
It was hard because I’m visual. I like to see what I have just in case we might need it (wink) but at the same time it takes up a lot of space. I really don’t want to box it all up and send it to storage.

Feb. 3rd

My son Ethan takes after his mama.
He takes pictures of his food. Funny!

Ethan also kneed himself while playing with his brother.
Thankfully it’s doing much better. The red is almost gone now.

Some pictures of Lance before his haircut.
And just because he’s so cute!
Feb. 10th

I love a good deal and couldn’t pass these soaps up at Target. They were $2.62.
My hubby and I love homemade soaps. We usually purchase our soaps online but we were out and using a Dove bar, sorry, but Dove just doesn’t cut it for me.
And about the same time I found these beauties. Okay, so maybe they aren’t as pretty as some of the homemade soaps I buy but the price was spot on for us.
They were only $2.50 a bar, score! I love getting a great deal.

Here is Annette reading “Are You My Mother” in Spanish. She is loving her Spanish course.
Me not feeling to well. I was reading up on The One Year Adventure Novel.

Thursday, Feb. 12th

We took the day off to go to a friends house. It was a cold chilly day.
My friend spoiled me with a good cup of hot tea, a foot soak, and tea cookies. Yes, I ate sugar. It’s not often that I do but this was a special day.
I even had a Costco individual pizza. The kids and I had lots of fun. We watched The Legend of Johnny Lingo.

The boys played airsoft and and such, Annette did some card making with her sweet friend, and Lance played with the Brio blocks and Playmobiles that my friend’s children don’t play with anymore.
Lance took one of his big dot-to-dot pages too.
The kids had fun playing a game called Pit.

Friday Feb. 13th

Lupe was so sweet and took out my SIL, her daughter, Annette, and myself for an early Valentines Day dinner.
Dad and daughter.
And all three of us.
He surprised us with candy and cards (I gave back the candy, hehe).
I loved my card.
My SIL is always thinking about us and gave us some Valentine goodies.
Happy Valentines Day
Aren’t they pretty. I had one little, teeny, tiny, bite of the chocolate truffle heart. I use to love chocolate truffles and haven’t had one in two years.

Annette made a card for her Great Grandmother and wanted to put a picture of her and her brothers.
My Crazy Bunch
They are in age order: Josh 16, Annette 15, Caleb 14, Brent 13, Ethan 12, and Lance 10.

Monday the 16th

Brent, Ethan, and Lance stayed up all night Sunday to Monday morning.

From what I heard Brent was the first to succumb to sleep, then Ethan, and lastly about 6:30 A.M. was Lance.
He was awake when Annette got up to make her dad’s lunch. Lance said he had to stay awake until the sun came up.

 Annette informed him that it’s rainy and the sun won’t shine like it normally does. Lance kept saying he had to stay awake.

Annette finally had him sit down and the last she heard from him was, “I’m awake, I’m still awake” but minutes later he was asleep.
I took him to my room and let him sleep off the all nighter.
For several days the family enjoyed a puzzle that was given to us.

Monday night we started this puzzle and finished it Tuesday.
It was a challenge with many pieced being the same shape and so many faces of the two monsters.

Annette working on the puzzle. She is wearing her sweater that Josh gave her for CHRISTmas. He bought it at Mardel’s.
I took pictures of the whole family getting in on the action but they didn’t come out very well.

It was hard with the lighting and all. I took them at 11:00 P.M. so there was no natural light like the pictures I took the next morning.

Here is one from the night before (Monday night).
I was trying to get one with their dad but just wasn’t able (sad to say) but he was there making some memories with the kids.
Puzzle Fun
Lance and all his little friends.
The lighting was not cooperating that night.
The monkey in the middle is a build-a-bear that his Auntie found for a $1.00 at a thrift store. His cousins have build-a-bears and he really wanted one. On a trip with his cousins to the Build-a-bear store he had seen the monkey but it was $20.00, so finding it for a $1.00 a few weeks later was a happy thing!

She washed the Build-a-bear monkey and gave it to Lance, he was all smiles.
The bear on the right I got free a few years back from Amazon. I ordered most of my CHRISTmas gifts from Amazon that year and they sent me a free bear. It was so perfect because Lance was asking for a bear that Christmas. It amazes me how God cares for us, even with the little things like a stuffed bear and monkey.

The Curious George, I can’t remember if I bought that for him or if it was another Auntie find.

And the last photo in this post is of one of the guinea pigs.
This one is Annette’s, her name is Frappa.
