The weather was really mild at the beginning of the week so Ben and the boys worked on their backyard fort. A friend of ours generously gave the boys several boards to use and they were thrilled!
Lately this girl has been LOVING listening to her Beginner’s Bible on CD. Since she can’t read very well yet, she spends a lot of time just sitting on her bed, looking at the pictures and listening.
My sweet husband has worked very diligently on adoption paperwork this week. Things are progressing faster than we thought and we should be able to submit our dossier VERY soon! Praise God!
Cody wanted to make pumpkin bread this week. He did and it was delicious!
For date day, these two went ice skating. I’m not sure who loved it more. 🙂
I think her love language is “Reading Aloud” and I think Cody is her favorite. 🙂
Hehe! Farm animal sounds. 🙂
It takes a lot to get this guy down. He’s fighting a bad cold.
Daddy and the girls stayed home from church Wednesday night. The boys were excited to visit the James General Store where Mr. Stache gave them mustaches!
Ugh. This was taken early Thursday morning after I found her in her bed with her diaper off. I’ll spare you the details. She sure does make it pretty difficult to stay mad at her though. 🙂
Since we were all tired from rough nights of sleep and fighting colds, we took Thursday off school and spent time with stickers, baby dolls and our new game, Bohnanza. We’ve borrowed it, and it’s a family favorite, so we were excited to get our own!
Her other favorite thing to play with besides books. 🙂 She LOVES her babies!
They discovered the concordance!
Science was taught by my lovely sister this week. Our experiment had us measuring lung capacity.
The experiment turned out to be a disaster and quite soggy. 😦 We had some good laughs though!
On Saturday, our kids spent the day with my sister’s family so we could take an all-day membership class at our church. We LOVED the class and are so thankful for our church! We got to go grocery shopping and have dinner together before picking the kids up for bed. It was a wonderful date day!
On Sunday we woke up to quite a bit of snow and it kept coming!
The weather didn’t stop us from going to a super bowl party!
This is what the Super Bowl is all about, right?!?!
It’s such a joy to have my oldest sister living close by these days. We enjoyed chatting (even though with 8 kids there are LOTS of interruptions), playing Bananagrams and she spoiled me with this delicious latte. So thankful for her!
