We found a new game that the kids have thought is pretty funny. The entire-family version is pretty hilarious, too!

Valentine's Day

We did some cookie decorating before Valentine's Day. It was funny to watch the kids' different styles - there were definitely lots of sprinkles! Kate dumped the entire white pearls out onto one of her cookies. Liam always had his tongue out - either in concentration or licking his knife ("Don't put that knife back in the frosting Liam!!!").

Since Valentine's Day was on a Sunday, we got them dressed up in red and pink. We also had a nice, festive breakfast, including heart pancakes (kind of), heart-shaped strawberries, pink eggs, and pink milk. Kate loved it!

We had a super fancy Valentine's Day dinner including bacon-wrapped filet mignon and a pomegranate sparkling drink. The kids loved it!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

what are all these bumps???

For the past few weeks (and continuing, on occasion, into May!), Liam has been getting mysterious bumps and rashes all over his body - on his face, on his belly and back, on his arms and hands, legs - basically all over. According to Dr. Craft, it's simply a virus that's been going around. It's especially mysterious because they will appear (oftentimes shortly after eating) for about 30-45 minutes, then will be gone again!

Liam sometimes breaks out in splotchy hives. It can happen seemingly in a few minutes and a few minutes later, they're gone. Since it seems to come and go, we're not overly concerned, but it certainly is strange to see them appear and disappear so quickly!
