Nap Time

"I'm NOT tired! I don't want to take a nap!"

"I'm just going to sit here!"

Disney On Ice

On Valentine's Day we exchanged cards, watched Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs, and ate spaghetti and meatballs! Our gift to ourselves as a family was tickets to Disney On Ice: World's of Fantasy. We scored a super discount on what turned out to be amazing seats, whew! As always Disney hits a home run - we had a GREAT time!

Owen's first visit to Arco Arena

Waiting for the show to start

So magical!

Look! It's Mickey & Minnie!


Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy opened the show

First up, Owen's favorite, CARS!

Next came The Little Mermaid

Then The Lion King


Final act, Tinker Bell

Tink was joined by Mickey, Minnie, Donald, & Goofy for the Grand Finale

International Gymnastics Centre

We attended a birthday party at the International Gymnastics Centre in West Sac this weekend. Owen had a blast playing on all the equipment! This was a really neat place!

MGP Valentine's Class

We had the pleasure of hosting preschool at our house last Thursday! It wasn't our week, but due to some extreme family illness over at the V-4's place, we offered to help out. This was a super fun day because it was all about Valentine's Day!

Making pink! Mix three parts white paint with 1 part red paint and you get pink!

Owen did an awesome job matching the animal cards with their written name!

Time for the Valentine's card exchange! Taylor is posing by her heart "mail box." The kiddos went around and deposited Valentine's in their friends heart.

Hunting for hearts in shaving cream! Squishy!

Time for snack!

Fishing for hearts! The hearts are marked with this months letters and numbers. The little fishermen took turns deciding what they should all fish for.

Playing with Mr. & Mrs. Potato heads. You can also see up on the counter our science project. We have flowers in red water and one in clear water and we're waiting to see what happens...

Find the hidden heart puzzle piece and then find where it goes on the board.

Silly sentences with conversation hearts!

Owen with his Valentine's!

Sweet hearts

Last night at dinner, we were talking about Valentine's Day with Owen. Aaron was explaining that Valentine's Day is for sweet hearts. I asked Owen who his sweet heart was and he said, "You Mommy! You're my Sweetie heart." And I turned into a puddle of mama goo...

Be Mine

Owen making Valentine's Day Cards for his girly girlfriends!

I should have taken a picture of the finished cards, SO CUTE!

W is for Whale

Owen: "Mama is W for Whale?"

Mama: "Sure, Whale starts with a W."
