Well BUSY and fabulous… as always! 3 birthday boys, Chinese New Year AND Valentine’s Day. Not to mention it is also Nana’s birthday month. I think February has ALWAYS kept us hopping. We tend to not do a huge celebration for Valentine’s Day but we do send out quite a few Valentines. Chinese New Year is always a bit of a big deal. We clean the house, wear new shirts (usually self decorated) and eat special foods. Although we will ALWAYS miss our friends back home who made Chinese New Year so special.
We celebrated Emanuel turning 10. Double digits it is!!!
And made our very own igloo.
It was Emanuel’s turn for a workbook completion.
The boys were very grateful for their lovely birthday gifts from all sorts of loving friends and family.
After all, the twins are now 12!!! Where has the time gone? Next year — TEENAGERS.
We had fun with the Schwartz family.
Swam our hearts out.
And in the world of crochet – a heart scarf I gifted to a sweet friend as a pick me up.
Hung out with the Novaks (gotta celebrate with our friends on those birthdays).
Had the guys over for game night.
Raced cars with the scouts… Not only Emanuel this year!
I got in sewing time of course – I made a jellyfish mobile for the girls’ room and for a friend back home – a hat that has a likeness to a hat on a certain Sci Fi series.
So a happy belated Valentine’s Day… etc… to everyone!
