I don't have too many pics from February, but here's a few I saved to my computer >>>
In the shot above, I had cleaned out their living room toys while they were sleeping, and when they woke up, I think they were surprised to see what they had. Less is more! They had a lot of fun playing that morning, and I didn't even mind that we started school late that day.
Below are a couple of shots from Matthew and Amelia helping dad out. Brad is baby-stepping clearing of our property. Each Saturday, he's been doing a section at a time - clearing, mowing, cutting, burning - and it is really looking good.

|Amelia (aka spunky monkey) - #2|
|She was the captain for the last game of the season. The last was the best by far for her!|
|Then came Valentine's Day! I found these old Bingo cards I had printed long ago, and we had so much fun playing over and over.|
|Decorating for Valentine's Family Dinner|
|Matthew's new Spider Man bike helmet.|
We found a new home for Molly, the Jack Russell. I think she'll be very happy there as she will be living in a home with an older couple who have no small children around. Matthew and Amelia were able to recoup a little of their Christmas money they had used on Molly, and Amelia got a new bike and helmet, and Matthew got a new baseball bat and mini-trampoline.
No pics of Cari and Madison - I'll have to do something about that in Tennessee - but Cari is currently getting ready for a Wizard of Oz play that her drama class at school will be performing soon. She is a munchkin. Madison has moved on to track season at school, and travel softball has begun as well with their first tournament last Saturday. That was the first time I've ever watched softball in the snow, and I'm kind of hoping it will be my last. LOL
And with this update, I guess March may officially begin. ;>)
