February, how do I always seem to forget about you? You are the woooooorst. There we were chugging along, happily making the most of this last bit of winter and then, BAM, everyone is down for the count. The baby got her first cold, Wes had to miss a day of school for a fever, Josh got sick next and I just thought... what in the hell is going on around here? And then I remembered, oh right, February.
^^^ This is how we feel about February ^^^
Besides the mandatory illnesses we've had below zero temperatures for weeks now, multiple feet of snow (resulting in more snow days than I count), one car accident and cabin fever that is OFF THE CHARTS.
But, this month is the birth month of a couple of my favorite people, and there's valentine's day. Josh and I did manage to sneak up to Cleveland for a show at Playhouse Square that night, so that was something. The little ones also brought home the sweetest valentine's day crafts and we had fun making valentines for their friends/classmates and some special ones to mail out to our loved ones whom we don't see nearly enough.
I know it's already two weeks after the fact, but let's just ignore how late I am with these photos. It is February after all, I'm gonna need a little slack.
