Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope everyone is having a great day! I'll catch you all up on what's been going on. About two weeks ago we got quite a bit of snow and Prestin's school was closed, so the kids played in it all day. It was gone pretty much the next day but they had a great time and I got lots of great pics. This is looking outside our front door.
This is out back
It definitely looks like a winter wonderland. And here's a few pics of the kids having snowball fights and using their snow toys.
And this is the girls about an hour after we came in.
I know there were a lot of pics but I have to do it for the grandmas, so anyways about a week before these were taken Zippie was neutered. We did it because we thought it might calm him down a little, so far there hasn't been any change except maybe he's a little dumber. They took his brains when they took them out that's for sure. He was pretty out of it when he came home and had to wear a cone for a about a week and a half, but he's doing much better. This was Prestin's reaction when we told him what happened to Zip.
Here he is scooping up snow with his cone and throwing it at the kids.
Ash went to Prestin's school for a "Daddy and Me Day", they decorated a shoe box for Prestin's Valentine Party. It turned out really cute. Prestin gave his classmates Spiderman cards and candy.
And Tatum turned five last Sunday, we got her a dress to wear to church and made heart shaped cupcakes and brought them to her Sunday school class. Then I made one of her favorite meals for dinner and had another heart shaped birthday cake.
One of the gifts she got was an Easy Bake Oven and she had a lot of fun making cookies.She is growing up so fast. Also I went on a Women's retreat with my church and had a great time and Ash survived staying at home with all five kids. Ainsley is on the verge of crawling any day now, but I'm not really anxious because then I'll have to chase her around the house all day. Ash is busy working hard every day and putting up with a lot of drama at work. Thanks babe for going in everyday for us, I appreciate all that you do and sacrifice to make our lives better. I love you, Happy Valentine's Day! Here's some more pics of Ainsley.
