Where did February go?

As March is quickly disappearing, I though I should share a glimpse of our February. I don't know exactly where my time went - but the month was full and fun. Be prepared for a random post.

Valentine's Day was celebrated a little early as we were expecting friends from out of town for the weekend. This little bunny is a new addition for spring and the grandchildren have already learned that he has little treats for them. Always 3, as Jackson is still too little.
The table set for our lunch with little treats for the grands.
Sweet Elizabeth.
Ben and Cooper modeling one of the treats in their mailbox.
A few Valentine decorations. I used to hang this postcard collection in my entry, but I don't have an entry in this house. So it usually remains in the closet. I thought this worked for the weekend.
Right before our guests arrived look what we got!! They came on Friday and this came on Thursday. It was fun to get the house ready on Thursday as the big fat flakes fell, but it made getting groceries a little difficult.

A winter wonderland - the trees were especially beautiful.
This is my ruler on my patio table. My unofficial storm total.
Our good friends from Kansas came and we had such a good time with them. The guys couldn't get their golf game in, which was a disappointment, but we found a few other things to do instead. This is our Valentine's dinner. We went out on Saturday and grilled steaks on Sunday {the 14th}.
I made them pose for a picture as they walked out the door - thanks for coming Robin and Jim!
Next up was celebrating Cooper's 3rd birthday. We were in Minnesota for his actual birthday so we took the gang to Chuck E. Che*se for a 2nd party. Here is Ben and Grandpa cheating a little on the basketball game.
Laura and Jackson.
Elizabeth and Tom shooting something.
Birthday boy Cooper.
Cooper and his cupcake - waiting for presents.
The month was fun and action packed as families with 4 grandchildren often are! We are blessed.

That little bunny sure is cute. Where did you get him?! Your two tables look great. I especially love the black, white and red one. Almost would have been a great TT post. Cute pics of all the kids. I really cannot believe Texas got that much snow. It looks really neat with the blue pool water.

Great pics! I love the snowy pictures, your trees do look beautiful. The pictures you got at Chuck E Cheese and your v-day party are so cute too.

Thanks - I'll have to get a lot better with centerpieces before I do a TT. I got the bunny at - where else - TJ MAXX

It was a great recap of the month. I didn't have my camera for the Vday party or cooper's party ( i really need to get my little camera back out and leave it in my purse) so it was fun to see all of your pictures. I also loved your v day tables - beautiful!
