Most of this week has been spent with company, and Zack is in the middle of his three day weekend, and has a school dance to chaperone tonight! Tomorrow after church (and naps) we’re going over to Zack’s aunt’s for a Super Bowl party? Sure, why not. A Super Bowl party.
At the end of my last post I mentioned we were going on an adventure- we ended up going to Lebanon, a town about 45 minutes away, and ‘exploring’ their tiny downtown area. We visited the local Taco Bell, a Christian book store, a flea market/antique thrift shop,  and a neat gift shop.
Trying to sneak some slushy…
Penelope picked out some toy musical instruments at the book store.
Zack and I were able to go on a date last night to Rolla. A fellow teacher recommended Kyoto, a Japanese restaurant, so we thought we’d give it a try. It was awesome! We actually ran into her when we arrived. 🙂
We took a walk this afternoon before lunch, and Miss P. received a boo-boo on our way home.
LOOK OUT! Hot fruit comin’ through!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!


Here are some snapshots from our week. I promise I’ll get back to writing more, but right now I am squeezing this post in pretty tight as it is. I am thinking of doing some regular (weekly) posts, such as ‘Snapshot Saturdays’ and ‘Make It Mondays’, so let me know if you have a favorite topic that I talk about on this here blog! It doesn’t have to have to fit in with a particular day of the week like those two examples. Seriously, I would love any input you have to give. Do you like seeing us out in town? Playing? Creating?

We are in the process of making a desk for our room, in case you were wondering about the wood being sawed in half on our bed. 
Penelope and I have been painting and decorating like crazy this past week, mostly for Valentines Day. I’ve never been fond of the idea of Valentines Day, but it has given our creativity a direction to go! Penelope has also made Valentines for a few people. 
Amelia is mastering the bumbo and is having major pacifier withdraws poor thing. Her tongue is still a little short and she is having trouble using one, so we’re (a.k.a.- Amelia, but I’ll say we’re for moral support) quitting cold turkey! Not fun.
Zack’s second semester of teaching is going great! He is much more at ease about the whole thing this time around.
P.S. Isn’t Miss P. Hot stuff in that last photo. She always looks cutest when she dresses herself.
P.S.S. I can’t get enough of them holding hands. I love love love my ladies.

I’ve been absent for a while, our internet was on the fritz this past week, I think due to some icy weather we had. I have been super busy and have only had time to snap photos and some home movies. I’ve taken the time without internet to soak up some cuddles with my girlies, and we all know you can never cuddle enough with your kiddos!
So here are some snaps of our week!
We just spent the day with my parents (my dad is above) and my nephews! The next two days we will be at my best friends house! Her sheep just had a lamb! I am looking forward to spending time in the country. I live in a country town, but there is nothing like s i l e n c e when you step outside!
Happy Birthday Martin Luther King Jr.! We’re all so glad you were born!
