So we have been busy with life and have not posted in awhile, so I thought I should update. My friend Karen moved back to Oregon last weekend and a few weeks ago we had a going away party for her. (Picture: Julianna, Karen, Jenna, and Kelly, the organizers of my Moms group). My SIL had knee surgery last week and we have been busy helping her family out, going to Valentine's Parties, working out, and Madelyn even had her first slumber party at her friend's house. She stayed with her friend Tyler and had so much fun, watching movies and eating popcorn, playing play-doh, coloring, getting her hair done and playing outside. Mommy had a nice break but Daddy was a little uneasy about the whole thing. He was ready for her to come home. Owen is charming as ever. He is starting to copy everything you say and it is so cute. He is finally over the pneumonia and back to his old self, into everything. Gabe is staying busy at work, thankful to be making it through the hard times. We are coming up on my niece's birthday, my birthday and our anniversary, so we will be busy for the next couple weeks. Until then I hope everyone has a great week.
