Crazy winters & happy love day

I have been extremely tired lately. Winters are busy here. A lot of holidays and birthdays to be celebrated in our household.
Valentine's Day was rushed, and I wasn't able to do our tradition this year of cooking a delish elegant dinner for my family with lots of pink. :) But, that's OK. We will try for next year. Marsh, Mad, and Court had a wedding to attend. Their cousin Sam got married. Ben, Myriam, and I dropped by for the reception. It was beautiful. She made a gorgeous bride.
I am anxiously awaiting summer. I can't wait until I have all my babies at home with me, and I don't have to ship some of my kids off to school. I don't like spending part of my day with them gone. It has been a long, cold winter. I love the snow, and I was ready for it, but I'm anxious for the warmer weather so we can go outside and PLAY!
Marshall has strep throat :( Ben isn't feeling well. Courtney, the baby, and I are over our colds except for the baby's runny nose. Mady and Courtney are still spot 1 and spot 2 (refer to my previous post for explanation). What a month for sickness it has been. I am craving a house full of healthy people, and bathing in the warm sun. Mmmmm.

I could barely keep my eyes open here. This mama needs rest. But hey, at least I'm keeping my new years resolution of keeping my blog updated. My kids will thank me when they're older (I hope) for being able to look back on these memories of ours. 
Courtney's preschool had their Valentine's class party the day before Valentine's Day. She came home with a bag full of Valentines from her classmates, and a cute little "Special Delivery" sign around her neck. It was so cute. It was her Valentine's gift to me. She had been telling me that she was making me a Valentine's gift at school. My gift had a poem on it, and at the end it said to pucker up my lips because my Valentine's gift is a great big kiss! So cute! 
Best. Gift. Kiss. EVER. :)
Courtney loves to dunk her food into her drinks. I see her dunking anything from bread to ramen noodles into her drinks of all sorts. She is silly. The other day she was dunking her cookies into green kool-aid. She said it was good. I think I'll pass on trying that one, and just take her word for it. 
This is my "BE <3 MINE" decoration that I made with my sister the other day. I was impressed with how it turned out.

We hope that your Valentine's Day was filled with love, and that you got to spend the day with the love of your life. I sure did! :)

I'm so sorry you all have been sick, hoping for a quick recovery!!! I agree with you on excited for warmer weather!!! I am beyond ready for that!!! Everyday since Groundhog Day after I told Lizzy that the groundhog didn't see his shadow (meaning spring is on its way) she has asked me, " mom isn't spring coming yet?" Or " I thought the G.h didn't see its shadow??" It is so hard to explain it for them in a way that they FULLY understand..
