I was able to meet up with my friend, Beth, last week. We met at Chick-Fil-A and were able to chat and catch up.
And then this week I was able to get a pedicure AND go out for lunch with Nichole and Amie. I am one lucky duck!
I woke up to this one morning. Iryna decided to hang from the blinds.
Anna playing dominos with Silas.
I got some tubs and organized the books for the kids. Let's hope they can actually find the book they want!
Silas at Calvin's pinewood derby. Calvin won more aerodynamic!
Iryna fits into a skirt that used to be Anna's. Iryna looks so grown up in a skirt. Where does the time go?
I got a little munchie during primary. #primarypianististhebestcallingever
I had Bonnie over today for a nice brunch. I am so blessed to have such great friends.

I love filling out this menu calendar that my best friend, Nichole created and gave me for Christmas. (it even matches my walls! #sheisawesome)
There are several of these in DC. I laugh when I see them. A store to get more FAS? No thank you! Ha ha ha. #fas #fetalalcoholsyndrome#wehaveenoughfas
After Christmas, everything looks a little bare. I got out the Valentine's Decorations. #problemsolved
I got a wonderful care package from my fabulous friend, Shellie. She knows how to cheer me up!
Poor Calvin had a fever, so I took him in and he has strep throat. Poor guy.
So glad Calvin could sleep in.
I have seen many odd restrooms in my life, but two toilets next to each other?#niceandcozy #gettingfriendly
Iryna enjoys her art class at school. #hugepaper #wherecaniputit?
I love snuggling my girl. No matter how old you get, you can always snuggle with mama.
Anna enjoyed getting out in the snow!
What a wonderful surprise on this snowy day! Thank you to my retreat mamas! You are the BEST!
Doing some puzzles with my favorite puzzle girl, Iryna!
Calvin joined me in two games of Uno.
Keith and Silas helped me break in a new Minions Trouble game that we got for Christmas. (Thanks Evan and Shelbee!)
So, we started getting snow yesterday...
The missionaries stopped by to help us shovel the driveway and sidewalks.
This was my deck this afternoon. Look at all the snow!
We have been greatly blessed that we haven't lost power. God is watching over us.

My fourth born in the wilderness is 9 years old. It's hard to believe that he has gone from this:
Calvin requested the baked French toast casserole for breakfast:
Calvin wanted a Star Wars themed birthday. I got him this BB8 t-shirt and gave it to him early so he could wear it to school.
My best friend, Nichole, made some Star Wars cookies for Calvin to take to school.
Calvin with his lightsaber cake! (Also made by Nichole)
Calvin is a joy in my life. He is so excited about just about everything. It's like seeing things for the first time when I am with Calvin. Calvin loves going to church, and he always takes his scriptures with him. He is excited to be a deacon when he turns 12 and to pass the sacrament. Calvin looks forward to serving a mission one day, perhaps in Russia! His favorite colors are green and black. He is learning more on the piano and seems to enjoy that past time. We just registered him to start baseball. This will be his first year to play. Calvin is a hard worker and gets excited about organizing things and sweeping the floors. He always puts a smile on my face when he is excited to share something new that he is discovered. I love you Calvin. Happy birthday!
