February Fun - My Valentines!

This is Miss Hanna, she is helps us a few days a week and we love her completely!  The kids adore her and she is nothing but a blessing to our lives.  Roo looks terrible in this pic but this picture captures the essence of Hanna!  She and her boyfriend Travis invited us over for a lunch and we had a wonderful time.  The electric piano was the kids favorite part.

Roo absolutely LOVED it!  He even sang! They are the most precious beings!  I am so lucky to be their mama.

Roo, how did we ever get along without you!

Laila has taught him to do somersaults! 

You are such a ray of sunshine!

Daddy and his boys! Their all brown!

My first and second.

This is the way we do dishes.  Its much more interesting don't you think!

This was our Valentines scavenger hunt!  This year we did 18 clues, our biggest hunt yet and they did great.  Jai said he got a little lazy and lost a bit of interest but he came back around at the end.  I love our tradition and they talk about it for weeks leading up to the event.  

Manik is the official clue reader. Laila told me later she preferred my clues to be rhyming.  I will have to try harder next year ;)

The kids were running around so much Roo had a hard time keeping up.  He was ready for a nap when it was all over!

The prize at the end! Well worth it!

 We have been having a burst of Spring weather in early February.  We will most likely pay for this dearly but while it lasts we are spending lots of time outside.  Laila loves climbing this tree and has gotten quite confident with her abilities.

I adore this picture.  Laila and her loyal subjects!  I honestly think Rohan was trying to figure out how he could climb up too!

January Update

Hi All,

Well Rohan is quickly turning into a playmate for Laila and Jai.  I have looked over to see Laila and Jai playing Star Wars with lightsabers and Rohan is right there with them with a mini sword laila made for him!  He is not wanting to be left out!  He is still a two toothed monster but it doesn't slow him down one bit and eats anything we do.  He makes us all laugh and is a great source of entertainment! I love watching them incorporating him into their play.  It very interesting to see their dynamics change and grow as he grows.

Laila started her guitar lessons and is really enjoying them.  She is very motivated to learn. I can't wait till she conquers her first song.

Jai, is counting down the days until his birthday and asking for every lego set he sees!  

Daddy and Roo

Painting on a cold and dreary day!

We had a day that was 60 and beautiful and we look the kids on a walk.  Rohan was great and actually got quite far but was easily distracted by eating ice and snow.  Get a load of those lashes!

Dino Roo

My sweet thing!
