We used dry ice to make juice into dragon's breath and had enough left over that everything we drank for the next day was an adventure of smoke and bubbles.
The kids got very excited for Valentine's Day and had fun helping me make heart pancakes for breakfast and heart brownies to go with our chinese takeout for dinner.
Our Valentine's at-home date was painting pictures of each other. It was fun :)
The kitchen remodel is done! Kyle built new concrete counter tops last summer, installed a new sink, painted the cabinets white, put in a back splash, recessed lighting, wood blinds, repainted the walls blue, and we got a new Toronto painting.
The kids loved painting and lasted way longer than I thought they would. The rule was that they could only help paint while Tad was napping. Alexa painted everyone's names on the wall and drew hearts everywhere.
The next project is the upstairs bathroom remodel.
Dean got to stay with us for a few days while Todd and Melissa were house hunting in Tennessee. The kids loved having an extra friend to play with.
Tad is my little sidekick in the bathroom when I get ready. He can now reach all of the drawers and I often open one to grab a hair brush or makeup only to find squishy bath animals in the drawer.
It's fun to have some one-on-one time with the kids while Kyle is at bishopric meetings and mutual Wednesday nights. This week we did Play-doh and as you can tell, Tad was a big fan.
