Happy Birthday, Tyler!

Our oldest nephew, Tyler, turned 13 years old this year!  How can it be?  A teenager!?!  He invited us all to his party at Putters where he and his friends played Laser Tag
We hung out in the arcade while the older kids played laser tag.

Hula Performances

 One of the BV Artists in Residence was a hula instructor!  The kids were so adorable dancing the hula and playing Hawaiian instruments!
 Watching Griffin & Finley's kindergarten class:
 I peeked in on Ronan's classroom. (:

1st EVER cousin sleepover!

Aaron and Becca had plans to go to Portland for a bank party and asked if we could watch their kids overnight.  Our kids had been begging for a cousin sleepover, so they were thrilled when we said yes!  
Sadie and I started off with leftover Valentine cupcakes. (:
Then we took the kids bowling, and invited the Henry family to join us.
Tate's a blur (;
The Henrys also came over for dinner that night.

The boys were excited to share beds. (;
And Princess Sadie got a big bed all to herself. (:
We had pancakes and bacon for breakfast, went to church, and then lunch at Memaw & Papa's afterward.

Pie Making & Valentine's Day

 2/12/13~ Jenny Morehouse taught our Moms of Grace group how to make pie crust today!
 She raffled off one of the pies, and I won!  It was super delicious!
I found a few cute Valentine ideas on Pinterest
Brownie batter & cake batter to make brownie cupcakes!
They were so yummy!
Gifts for our boys on Valentine's day morning.
 I hosted our Bible study group that morning also, and Tate got to play with one of his super sweet friends, Adair.
Such a good little guitar player & singer!  His favorite song is "Ho Hey" by the Lumineers
My sweeties
Flowers & chocolate from Josh (:
And a sushi date!
