February was a full month for us. We all had very busy schedules, but nature intervened and insisted we take a few days off to slow down, enjoy each other and the beauty of winter. We had a lovely month. Here are a few of the highlights.
*We started off the month by watching the Super Bowl. I cared approximately 0% who won, but we did have yummy snacks and drinks, which is always the best part anyway. :)
*I went out for a moms night out with the local MOMS Club.
*Oregon got hit by it's biggest snowfall since 2008.
*I made fun of everyone for overreacting and then got snowed into my apartment for 4 days.
*But it was pretty and I made cinnamon rolls so it was okay.
*Amelia LOVED playing in the snow and we even ran into her good friend while we were out exploring.
*Amelia had her 6 month dental check up and did great. Still holding strong in the No Cavity Club.
*I had really great intentions of making super cute, homemade valentines for Amelia's school party. Buuuut, I didn't. Turns out she liked the ones from the store more anyway. :)
*I ended up being sick on Valentine's Day, but still had fun with my favorite little Valentine who kept telling me how much she was loved and loved me.
*Amelia had her first "sleepover." We watched her little friend Arden while her parents went out. The girls played games, ate snacks and watched a movie before falling asleep entirely too late. I couldn't help but feel like I was simultaneously watching the slumber parties of my past and her future.
*Spring is just around the corner and the rains have begun. But Amelia doesn't mind because she loves her rain jacket and dinosaur rain boots.
*We took a trip the Portland Children's Museum with friends.
*Amelia and I continued our Friday afternoon Starbucks lady dates.
*After a couple of months of being entirely too lazy, I jumped back into my Barre3 online workouts.
*Amelia spent all day being a Ninja Turtle and impressing me with her ninja moves.
*And then changed out of her ninja gear and into a dress and ruffles for the Daddy Daughter Dance.
*Amelia and David double dated with friends to the dance and even went out to a fancy dinner at McDonald's beforehand. They were pretty much the most adorable thing I have ever seen.
Thank you February, you were indeed a month filled with love.
