February Part 2

Feb 18

We went to the zoo and of course we had to see our favorite elephant Billy.  Almost every night Christopher and I tell stories to the boys and there is usually one story about Billy the Elephant and Reggie the Alligator who are best friends in the zoo.  Whenever we go to the zoo we have to stop and see Reggie and Billy!

Feb 19

Just making silly faces at dinner

Feb 2O

We have been going to the Kids Club at the local mall.  The boys enjoy their time there.  Nathan has been obsessed with trying to win the raffle :]

Feb 21

We went to a local-ish park that has been newly remodeled.  The boys had a lot of fun, but outside of the park was this guy that was doing crazy upper body strength stuff (he's in the background].

Feb 22

Nathan showing off a cashew.  

Feb 23

Anderson drawing.  He loves to draw and so does Nathan.

Feb 24

Climbing the fig tree in our backyard

Feb 25

We got to go see a friend's puppy that was absolutely adorable!

Feb 26

Christopher's 41st Birthday!!!!!  We spent the evening with his sister Sandra and her boyfriend Shawn.  I also made a homemade light cheesecake that was pretty delicious!  Christopher made Chili for his own birthday :].  The boys wanted to make sure that they helped Christopher blow out his candles!

Feb 27

We joined a new homeschool group (one that I wish I had joined much earlier].  Since rain was forecasted the leader of the group decided that we would have a fun day of learning at a bowling alley.  She put together this whole lesson of the physics of bowling that was great for kids!  After the lesson the kids got to bowl.  We really love this group, but unfortunately we made the decision to move so we won't be able to continue with them :(

Feb 28

I didn't take a picture :(

And that is the end of February!

March will be up later this week!



I have a good excuse why March is not updated, but I really should have updated February on time!  Since it is now April and my memory is not the best, I hope that these pictures will jog something!  I also hope that I took a picture a day (I'm sure I missed a few].

Feb 1

We got invited to a "Tortoise and the Hare" themed birthday party complete with tortoises and hares!  The boys had a great time!

Feb 2

Our friends Indira and Timi came over for a playdate!  We ate some wonderful crepes and all of us made our own pizzas!

Feb 3

We were still getting a ton of tomatoes from a plant we planted last summer.  We also got some eggs from our chickens!  Urban Homesteading!

Feb 4

Darn, I forgot to take a picture!

Feb 5

Christopher was reading to the boys and Gracie!  It was really cute!

Feb 6

I almost forgot to take a picture, but I remembered at dinner time.  This is also a good picture of what our kitchen looked like before we had it remodeled in March.

Feb 7

We had guests coming and I had to wash the sheets.  The boys found this an opportune time to jump on the bed!

Feb 8

I forgot to take a picture this day too :(

Feb 9

We had talked to a realtor about selling our home and she suggested that we get rid of the popcorn ceilings.  We read lots of tutorials and decided that we could probably get rid of the ceilings ourselves.  We decided that we would test it out in our "library," the least used room. Christopher was doing the work!  

Feb 1O

Since we were doing stuff to the house Nathan wanted to help too.  We figured that painting a wall with primer was a good job for him!  He decided after a little bit that it wasn't fun and he wanted to go and play!

Feb 11

The boys somehow always end up naked!

Feb 12

We've been in the beginning stages of potty training Anderson.  He isn't very good at letting us know when he has to go pee when we are out and about.  He went pee at the park and didn't let me know until I saw that this pants looked like this and then he said, "oh, I peed awhile ago."  Of course I did not bring a change of clothes :(

Feb 13

No picture for this date either :(

Feb 14

Happy Valentine's Day!


Aunt Karen & Glenn were staying with us and they brought back a book from the San Diego Zoo that the boys were enjoying!

Feb 15

Anderson with his long and messy hair

Feb 16

Aunt Karen decided to give Anderson a hair cut

We decided that we didn't like the bangs, so we just shaved his head

Feb 17

We went to our favorite dessert place, Get Shaved, for some shaved ice with ice-cream!  Yummy!  Luckily, we live in So. California where it is good enough weather in the winter to get a cold dessert and eat it outside!

I think that I have reached my limit for this blog because Nathan is insistent with playing with my computer and it's too hard to blog...Later tonight I will try and finish February!
