February Love

 It's been lot's of fun in February around our house.
Get ready for a lot of pictures.

Ben celebrated with friends at our local gym with a swimming party.  They had so much fun.

Random shots of my grands having fun in the pool.
We sure can't wait for pool weather!

Then Bob and I headed to Pensacola to visit some friends from Kansas.  They recently bought a condo that Linda has beautifully redone and I felt like I was staying at the Ritz!  She thinks of every detail!
The view from her balcony:-)

Ben had a school program and we got off the plane from our trip to Pensacola and headed right to school to see the 1st graders in pj's doing some fun songs. 
Ben was having fun before the program but was pretty shy up on stage.
Isn't he the cutest?

Elizabeth and her friend Emma.

We had company from Minnesota during Valentine's weekend.  Kathy set the table for the kids to come and have lunch with us.

We grownups dined out at a local place that had a special dinner for Valentine's Day.  It was so good, but no pics:-(

Both of Jessica's boys are in soccer and we headed their way last weekend to watch both play.

Jackson had a run in {literally} with a sidewalk - I didn't cry - he told me.  I almost cried looking at him.

Look at the cutie in her soccer duds.  Laura has a new business making adorable children's things and I love this shirt.

Today is a special boy's 7th birthday.  
Cooper turns 7 today!
I finally remembered to get out the birthday plate I bought on ebay.  I think it will be a fun addition to our birthdays.

{Notice the repeat football theme ~ Pete and Repeat ~ that's our Ben and Cooper.  And yes, Bob made another football tablecloth} 

I make birthday cake dip!
The kids love it and it's just cream cheese and butter and sugar and funfetti cake mix.

Our big boy!
I can't believe he is 7 already.

The sparkler candle on his choice of ice cream sundaes.

He and Ben are trying to catch the sparks:-)

Happy Birthday Cooper!
We love you lots!

I'm so glad that Repeat got to have his football party too. That's too cute to me.

It looks like you had a wonderful February full of both family and friends. It doesn't get much better than that.

(I think Elizabeth and her friend have exactly the same smile! Have you ever noticed that?)

I found your blog via Words on Wheels. What is the name of the yellowish paint that you have in your home? May I ask, who is the maker of the yellow club chairs? I like them!

Sue - You left a comment on my blog (Micah Six Eight) about donating to a child of Elizabeth Dehority's choice. Her choice is Lynda on Reece's Rainbow. THANK YOU!!!
