Forever and a day

OK, so, I haven't posted in forever and a day! So, so sorry.
Here's a quick update.

1. We had ANIMAL RESCUE in our yard a few weekends ago. A racoon had injured himself and was stuck in our back yard. Andrew called animal control. They couldn't catch him and he ran up in a tree. He was so sleepy and hurt that I knew he would fall out any second. Eventually, he did fall. We called animal control again. He wasn't in our yard any more, so we weren't sure if they came to get him or not. Later that night Boomer was barking at something outside. When I turned on the light, my racoon had returned. He was staring right at boomer from the other side of the door. I watched him walk around and around in our yard. He was definetely feeling better and walking better. The next morning he was gone. I was a little sad, but thankful that he was ok. (Plus, racoons aren't a good thing to keep around our house when you have little kids and a pug) The animal control lady said he wasn't rabbid, but still. When the kids see pictures of him they say, "Watch out he bites!" (Aren't you proud Grani?!) :)

2. Andrew's birthday.

Andrew turned 28 on the 8th. I had a special dinner planned for him on the 7th, but he had to work late. The 8th was a Wednesday, so the kids and I went to Choir. When we came home we had ice cream. Thursday was "Dancing With the Stars" so we couldn't go out to eat till Friday.

On Friday the kids went to Grandma and Grandpa's and I took Andrew out to eat. It was a really nice restaraunt. They sat us by the fireplace. They even gave us a surprise appitizer and a surprise dessert. We also had taken Boomer to the vet earlier that morning. He was having his teeth cleaned. They ended up having to pull 4 of his teeth! (Good thing Andrew's birthday money came in right when Boomer had dental problems!!)After dinner we picked up Boomer and the kids and went home.

3. Yesterday was Valentines Day.

Daddy suprised us with flowers, balloons and stickers on our car. Haven suprised us with an eye that was matted shut. Doesn't she look pitiful? So, we had breakfast with grandma and grandpa. (grandma wore her special heart shaped valentines ear rings.) The kids got some cute Valentines. Then Haven and I went to the doctor. Thankfully, it's just a cold in her eye and she looks and feels better.

The kids had enjoyed a visit from Grandma, Grandad, and Grandmama on Saturday. They got cute little bears and candy and got to go out to eat at AppleWoods. Yummy!

Uncle Daniel and Aunt Christy sent the kids some more Valentines which they loved.

Gibson and Haven also got a package today from Grani and Papa. They loved what they found inside.

A whole bunch of Wiggles Valentines and two cute giraffes. They also got a cookie that looked like Curious George.

I think they really enjoyed Valentines Day.

The only other update I have is about my sister-in-law and her husband. They might be really close to adopting a baby girl. Whenever that happens I'll put pictures of her on my blog.

Oh...that was so much fun to read and see!! Thanks for all of the pictures. I'm glad you guys had a fun Valentines Day! I'm real glad to hear that the babies know the racoon will bite. :) Hopefully you can post "cousin" pictures next week!

By the way....I'm so glad Haven's eye is better! Tell her that Grani loves her. Tell Gibson that Grani loves him.

Papa said...

I love all of the pictures. Except it makes me miss all of you real bad. Lots of love from Papa.

Oops! Valentine's Day showed up, and all I did was grab a piece of candy from the candy box that Robin's friend, Ben, had given to her. Then I attended the neighborhood's valentine's party at the fairgrounds. The good news Ruedi returned home near midnight on the 13th, and so he was able to be my date. We listened to a great band.
Enjoy your little sweethearts because they'll grow up so fast! Andrew looks well preserved for his age. :-) We love you!

We thought we would leave you a message and tell you that you are one hot mama.
