Valentine's Day

I know February is old news, but I had to post about Valentine's Day because we had a FUN day. Better late than never! I want my children to know that we DID do fun things with them.

I was in charge of Jack's classroom party. We did three activities:
1. Made home-made valentines
2. Decorated sugar cookies with LOTS of candy and frosting
3. Passed out valentines to class-mates
Jack lives for holidays. He was thrilled to have me be in charge of his party. It makes me feel so loved to know that he likes it when I'm there! I hope that lasts.
After school we loaded up the kids and drove downtown. First we went to Sonic for dinner, because we were in a hurry to make a show, Playhouse Disney Live! It was basically like watching the Disney Channel- except Handy Manny was a real person instead of a cartoon character. But the kids LOVED it. Here we are waiting for our corndogs at Sonic:

And here we are at the arena watching Playhouse Disney Live!!!

Owen's T.L.C.

I had a wisdom tooth removed over a week ago. From the day of the surgery, Owen has been concerned. He's offered to rub my feet, scratch my back, and so forth.

We were recently picking up sweet, little Eden for school. We were doing our routine car-pool pickups. As Eden walked to our car, Owen rolled down the window and yelled,
"Edeeeee- hurry up! My Mom had a tooth yanked out of her head and it hurts really, really bad!"

I was laughing so hard I think I did more nerve damage to my already damaged nerves. I was NOT expecting him to do that. He's been saying the 'funny things' in our house lately.

* We were swimming at the YMCA recently, when Owen said, "Your face is connected to your head, right Mama?" He then said, "Your eyes, nose, and this" touching his face,"Is your face." "THIS-" he says, rubbing his hands on the back of his hair and chin, "and this, is your head."

* While we were at the YMCA, Lucy accidently slipped on the ground from running. Owen said, "Lucy- you have to be careful or else the garf-liars will get mad at you." It took me a several seconds before I realized that "garf-liars" means "life-guards."

* Owen's fascination with the human head continued into the weekend. During sacrament meeting at church Owen whispered to me, "Mama, where do your nostrils end?"

* Adam recently praised Owen for a project he worked on during preschool. Owen responded by saying, "It's because I followed the injections." (Translation: instructions)
