The month of February is always a busy month for us, we have a lot of family birthdays plus Valentines Day. So it seems like each week we have something going. On the 6TH we Celebrated my 31ST birthday, I didn't do anything to exciting. I got to spend the day relaxing at home, then my parents came over and watched the boys for us, while Dave took me to dinner at Red Lobster. I had been craving crab legs all week, we then went home and had brownies and ice cream with the kids and my parents. It was nice and simple just like I like it. The boys got me some stuff from Bath and Body Works and Dave gave me cash to go spend on what ever I want. I actually love it when he does that rather than him giving me an actual gift. Yes Dave actually put 31 candles in the brownies that's why you see a ton of smoke, I'm surprised that the smoke alarm didn't go off.

On Sunday the 8Th we were able to bless Cole here at the house, there were a lot of people at the house but it was fun to all be together for this occasion. I am so grateful to have the gospel in my life, and to be able to live close to family so that we are able to get together for special events like this.

Jaden, Ty and I each got sick the next week, everyone had something different. I had a sinus infection, Ty had a slight cold and Jaden had some weird virus that lasted forever. I was scared to death that Cole was going to catch something, so he was never really allowed in the same room as the boys. Even I wore a mask when I was around him. I have since stocked up on a lot of multi vitamins for the kids and they are finally all healthy. I'm just praying that we all stay that way.
For Valentines we didn't do much just spent the day together as a family, I love having quiet quality time with our kids. Dave and the boys got me a gift certificate for a pedicure, and I'm looking forward to using it.
My brother and his wife both had birthdays the following week and my Brother-in-laws birthday is next week, so all of my family is getting together this weekend to celebrate all four birthdays. I'm looking forward to getting out of the house. This month has flown by I can't believe that it is already the end of the month. I remember as a kid time use to go buy so slowly and my mom would always say, just wait till your older and it will go by quickly. Well now it's going by way to fast it needs to slow down, I know it won't I guess I just need to make better use of my time.

Cabin fever!

Yes we are still alive! Cole is doing great all the kids are healthy and we're still stuck inside. We still can't take Cole anywhere, he seems fine but the Docs have told us he could easily catch RSV or any other bug really easily. Which I really don't want to watch him go through anything like that again so until May we're on lock down.
But it doesn't mean I can't get a little bit of cabin fever, for example Dave use to do the grocery shopping. But now he stays home with kids so I can do it, I never thought that I would want to go grocery shopping. It's annoying that there are things that I need to go do but can't unless Dave is home to take care of the kids. I feel like I have no connection to the outside world, also I feel sorry for Jaden and Ty. The weather has been beautiful but we can't even go outside to enjoy it, I would love to be able to take them to the park. Or being able to sit together as a family at church, it's just the little things that you take for granted all the time.
There is a bright side, I get to spend a lot of quality time with Cole, I love to watch him smile, his whole face just lights up. And he has started to laugh now, it is so cute although he doesn't know what to make of being tickled. And I am saving Dave a lot of money buy being stuck at home, he likes that part.
I am so grateful for the sisters in my ward who have been willing to pick up Jaden and Ty from school for me. And for those of you who call just to see how we're doing, you guys are wonderful.
I have learned not to take good health for granted, and that everyday is a great gift.
