A side note about my Dad- he was not always willing to support our escapades but I think there came a point in time that he knew we were going to go out looking for "adventure" so why not make sure it was at least safe- plus he scored a lot of "cool" points for assisting. (I'm not really sure Mom knew about the eggs- I think I remember Dad saying, "just don't tell your mom"- whoops)
He really just brightens my day!

then run back in because it was not as warm as it looked. . .
Drink some hot cocoa and stay inside!

Garret- "Me night-night right now please"
Me- "No you have to wait, it’s not nap time yet"
Garret- "Me night-night two minutes on couch please"
Me- "No not even for two minutes, you have to stay awake"
Me- "Does mommy get hugs and kisses?"
Me- "why not?"
Garret- "They still in my tummy"
Garret- "Daddy best buddy"
Me- "and what is mommy"
Garret- "you Mommy. .silly"
Garret is so fun; he is always saying funny things, playing pretend (usually we are dinosaurs, baseball players or going for airplane rides). He loves his friends and begs for them to come over. He loves to be our little helper and never ceases to entertain us.
On a side note- I hate folding socks and they are never all there- where do they go? When kids get older are they better about putting both socks in the laundry?

Today we went to lunch together (no kids!!!- Thanks Amber). We went to a little Italian sub shop on Hertal. I love Hertal (parts of it at least); I love the cute antique shops and the little restaurants with their awnings. I love that they are independent business's no chains (It's just so cute). The restaurant was one of those places where the owner works there and asks you if you are enjoying your food and you know he cares because it is his business and your satisfaction means more than a tip- it means his livelihood. I think chains have lost that personal touch that exists when there is hands on contact buy the owner with his guests and his employees. (I could go off on this but we will save that for another time) The bottom line -Lunch was great- Tyler even got his capocola, which he loves.
Then we headed off and got our massages. This was only my second professional massage (third if you count Christy's house). I felt awkward at first because the guy said just take off as much as you are comfortable with- then I started wondering if at this spa people normally leave every thing on (because come on who is really comfortable practically naked). I finally got over that and really enjoyed it; so much I could probably do it everyday and never get sick of it. I think Tyler enjoyed it as well- pretty sure he fell asleep although he denies it!

The kids woke up to a couple little gifts on the table and Garret was so excited (last night I found a couple stocking things from Christmas I forgot to put out and I had picked them each up something from the dollar store) I love how easy it is to make them excited. Garret keeps telling me "Happy Valentine's day" and giving me kisses. I dyed their oatmeal red (always a hit).
It is only 9:00 but it is already a great day!

It's so hard for a little guy to be stuck inside all day long (it's hard for me too!)
Spencer update- Spencer now has 6 teeth- two on top but not next two each other and four on the bottom. I think he will be up to 8 within the next week. He is sitting up really well and making all kinds of noises. He loves his big brother and gets so excited when he sees him. He already tries to copy him. If Garret hits the ground Spencer will do- little things like that- and he chases Garret in his walker.

We watched Allison and Christian for a little while. Spencer just watched Christian the whole time. The other night Garret called my Mom to ask her to sing her tuna fish songs (My Mom still remembers these random old commercial songs- Garret thought they were hillarious). He has been walking around going "bumbumbumbumblebeetuna".

Our first Valentines Tyler went a little overboard for only knowing me for a month- I loved that he cared so much though- so it was perfect. I came home from school and he had decorated my room with hearts and each heart said something he liked about me on it. Then on my bed were gerber daisies, a book (love books), a box of muffin mix (I think I had made these for him) and I think I am forgeting something. Anyway it was cute. (I gave him a rose I welded- I think that might have been it). Then we went on a double date with Mark and Jenni and I think if I remember right Cliff was in on setting up the date (that is why I tagged you guys). The guys took us to the river and they had this romantic dinner set up for us. It was so refreshing dating someone that liked to make things special and who was not afraid to make a big deal out of being together. I also remember this date becuase Mark told Jenni in a card that he loved her and Jenni was so excited. It was so cute! (But then I got nervous because I was afraid Tyler might say he loved me- I was not ready for that yet!)
This picture is from "Sweetharts Ball" I think this was around Valentine's day. My little sister came to visit so we set her up and we went with Mark and Jenni. We went to Jackson hole first for dinner then went dancing.
Around that same time we spent the night at Tia's (Tyler's sisters house). We decided to tie the guys in their apartment. So we tied ropes from the door to the railing. Then we called asking them to help us with something (Can't remember what). We tied ourselves in as well so they wouldn't know who did it. Finally they got out came to help us but we had someone on the balcony above ready to sabotage them. To make a long story short a war started- The Girls Won! This is our victory breakfast!Like I said earlier I am sentimental (I am trying to gradually record all the memories I can so they will be my next blog book)
