Happy Valentines Day!!!

Brent was a wonderful husband, as always, and brought me flowers on Friday! They are so beautiful! and they have all opened up and smell so good!

On Saturday we went out to breakfast at the Cracker Barrel... we'd never been there before, and Brent had really wanted to go, so we tried it out, and it wasnt bad! it was very southern, more than we realized, with deer heads above the giant fireplace, and a fully stocked counrty store, with some pretty neat things, we'll definately go back.
That evening we decided that instead of one of us cooking a fancy dinner for the other, we would cook a fancy meal together! We actually had alot of fun! Usually our kitchen is too small for the two of us to be in together, but we made it work, and had a fantastic dinner of Penne with roasted bell peppers and pancetta in a sweet vermouth reduction. and since we had the vermouth, we practiced making martini's, Brent was a great bar tender, and had a whole mixing station set up on the counter, the drinks werent half bad either!
It feels like Winter is almost at it's end! We're half way through February already and I cant believe how fast this year is already flying by! I've been working alot lately, and finally have some time off to blog and post some updates! Every week I try to get the kids out at least once or twice for a playdate with friends. This ends up being just Maggie and I, now that Josh is in school full time, and Matt goes 3 days a week (without any crying now!). Last week we were invited to do something new and very fun, Bowling!! It went well for the first few rounds, we split the kids up onto two lanes, so they wouldnt get impatient waiting, put down the bumpers, and let them roll! Maggie was just barely big enough to hold the ball, but she insisted on carrying it down and rolling it herself! I helped give it a little push sometimes, cause it would go too slow and set off the fowl buzzer, but she still had a great time doing her bowling ball dance to make it go faster down the lane. I think we'll have to do this again soon, we really had a fun time.
