February is ending on a very lovely note. I'm going to post pictures from as far back as the beginning of the month. I know it's only the 26th, but as far as I know, we have nothing planned planned for the next two days. The only event that I don't have pictures of is my friend's wedding that took place last Friday evening, but they're still on their honeymoon and as soon as she shares them with me, I'll share them with you. :)
February 5 was my dad's birthday - 53 years old!
|Daddy directs the birthday song and the boys think it's the best thing since sliced bread, and we're not big fans of cake so we do Oreo Dessert (like ice cream) for our birthday desserts. :)|
February 8 - 9 the C-Stone Cadets were involved in their very first tournament and took home the championship trophy - yay for C-Stone!
February 12 was our annual Sweetheart Banquet at church, and some teens and I stayed in the nursery and took care of all the children. We had 42 kids aged 12 and under!
February 14 was, of course, Valentine's Day! :) Daddy was out of town, so me, Amie, and Mama babysat the boys while Jacob and Christine went out to eat. We made cards and played with paint!

February 15 was exactly one week until Hannah's wedding. She and Faith came over for pizza (the greasy kind and the fruit kind) and we hung out in the lame grown up way where you go home and sleep in your own bed at bedtime.

February 18 was President's Day and the youth group met at the church for pizza...and an inflatable, which I only got in once.

February 20 my aunt and uncle welcomed a little baby girl into the world. The seventh child, she has six big brothers. This was a very big deal for our family - she's the first granddaughter since Amie, and Amie's 18! There are also 3 great-grandson's, one great-granddaughter, and another great-grandson on the way. Little girls are scarce in our family, and we can't get enough of this one!

February 22 was Hannah and Jacob's wedding. He's from Kentucky, so they're going to be living there. I'm going to miss her like crazy, but the wedding was beautiful and I can't help but be beyond happy for her. I'll go ahead and link her blog in case you want to keep up with them. She's an amazing photographer, so I'm sure she'll eventually have several pictures up. Her blog is "Our Happily Ever After."
February 24 was my PawPaw's 81st birthday. We drove over to their house for lunch after church on Sunday and celebrated with him. Here's a picture of PawPaw and his granddaughters minus Rachel who couldn't make it in.

There was my lovely February, I hope yours was wonderful as well! Who else is ready for spring?!
