Freezing in February!!!

Mr. Groundhog

Mr. Groundhog down below,
Pop up through the fluffy snow, 
See his shadow watch him go, 
Winter's here to stay.

Mr. Groundhog down below,
Pops up through the fluffy snow,
Wide awake he wants to play,
Spring is on it's way.


At our house, we were very anxious for SPRING to come...we had some pretty cold days...
and even had some white stuff fall from the sky...
but this is how Thomas felt about it all...

Luckily, there were some fun things that happened in February to keep our minds off the cold...

lost his other front he has a really cool smile now!!  :)
Thomas made his own cookies one night with the help of Aimee...they were really yummy!  A special chocolate chip cookie with coconut mixed in and on top of the cookies too!!  :)  
Thomas also celebrated 100 DAY at school!  


finished up her science fair project!  Her project was about taste you think the color of your juice changes how it taste to you????
Since the 5th graders are the oldest at their school, they get to do fun things like have a Manners Luncheon!  Mattie was able to go shopping with a friend to find new dresses for them to wear to the Manners Luncheon...this is how cute Mattie looked on her special day!  :)


All the 5th graders had a HUGE party in the cafeteria.  They had different stations...looked like a lot of fun!!  I came to watch for a few minutes and saw Mattie playing the "Hot Potato" game with a BIG HEART!  
The kids were passing it really fast!!  
Unfortunately, Mattie got out as I took her picture.  But she still had fun watching everyone!!  :)

Thomas' class passed around Valentines earlier in the day!  Do you like Thomas' Valentine's box?
 They also made some Valentine crafts...
They played the "Hot Potato" game too!  Uh oh, is Thomas out too?
This is Thomas' artwork out in the hall!  :)


Track season had its debut with a 1 1/2 mile race on February 19th.   It was starting to actually warm up some!!  :)  There were a TON of girls running in this was a district wide cross country meet...
this is only about HALF OF THE KIDS!  

A little bit later, Aimee was coming around the final turn!!  :)  She had some stiff competition...

but Aimee doesn't like to have people in front of her!
Look at her go!!!  What a speedy girl...8:09! 
She came in 1st!!!  Check out that smile!!!  :)


I was in charge of a booth about service for our Women's Conference.  I was lucky enough to have one of my favorite people as my helper.  Here is what our table looked like!  
Our topic was how to serve with our families.  Here is a link to our stake website where you can access our handouts:

February turned out to be a good month!!!

That was sure fun to read. I love to get updates on what your kids are up to. You photos and commentary capture their uniqueness.
