February went quick, but thankfully (for us) we had some snow before the month was up! We started and ended the month with snow. I really could leave it there because that was the most important part of our month.
We had a few days of good snowfall (like most of the country)- but we were expecting and hoping for it (The girls and I, not the grandparents). The girls got their fill of playing in the snow, and thankfully, Zack got to be there to enjoy some sledding himself, and help lay good sledding tracks for us to enjoy. Miss Maybe was very happy in the snow as well! She was not thrilled when Mum got in the sled with Dad, but she got her exercise trying to save me, haha.
George was not thrilled with the cold weather. He tried to only spend two minutes out at a time. The in and out was delightful (it wasn’t). He still hasn’t learned to use his cat door.
Maybe still lives by me feet, but has been getting more snuggles and treats than normal. She really loved February.
The girls and I have been spending a lot more time than usual on the couch, piled together, snuggling up, and, while that seems like a small thing, it is my favorite thing!
Zack decided to only eat what I can eat this year – with the exception of the nights the other adults cook. With that, the girls and I got back to cooking daily big meals with each other. We haven’t done that in a year! It is hard to juggle kitchen time between so many people, but February really brought back a groove. AND! Each meal we made this month was a new-to-us recipe – and delicious!
The girls and I (and Shari this year!) continued our ‘heart attacks’ Valentine tradition! We covered the upstairs living area with hearts. We wrote things we love about each person -as well as Maybe and George. The girls and I tried to write one a day, and Shari wrote one for everyone in the house.
Rae finished the Millennium Falcon!! The way she uses it for play is just the greatest. The girls are so incredibly creative! PapaDeedee were so impressed, too.
Also, in sadder news, the braces have already closed her front gap. When I told her, her gap was gone, she said, “Nooooo, that was my best thing!” She is doing incredible with the braces though! This is new territory to all of us, and I was a bit nervous she would be uncomfortable but so far she hasn’t had any issues.
I’ll leave it here with this photo of Zack drawing portraits, sporting a fresh hair cut. I nearly cried as I cut it but I really do love it on him.
The girls were not supportive of his decision to lose the long locks, and are still not encouraging…but it’s not like he shaved his beard – I really would cry then, haha.
HE’S SO PRETTY!! Ahh, we love that man. I should end every post with his gorgeous face…mmm…
