Valentines Day

We don't usually do much for Valentines day around here. I have never really been that into it and my husband feels its a girls holiday! But I found these cute Valentine card ideas on a friends blog, just couldn't resist. 

For some reason P's picture wouldn't upload right, it kept turning it like this.

The Big 8

I think I have always taken for granted, having been born and raised in the church. I have gotten sidetracked a few times along the way, but I know that I have a true testimony of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  With Dominick turning 8, I realized he wasn't ready for baptism. I know if I asked him to do it he would, but I don't think he would fully understand the covenant he was making. So he has started meeting with the missionaries and preparing himself for that next step.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE my son is 8! That is just crazy and insane to me!
We played a little trick on him, his sister got him a nice starter kit for a DS but he doesn't have a DS. Then he got to open the rest of his presents (I held ours back for last). When he opened ours it was an Empty DS box. (I know you are thinking we are the meanest parents EVER!). HE was a little upset but knew he could still play my old DS when allowed. As he took his presents up to his room he found his new DS sitting on his bed charging and ready to be played! He was SO excited!

Time sure does fly because that little boy is now 8. Soon he will be baptized (I hope), he starts boy scouts, he is playing baseball, loves to dance, and is a master lego builder. He LOVES HOMEWORK! His favorite food is spaghetti and he loves chocolate! He always has his nose in a book, sometimes 2, and currently has started the Harry Potter series. We LOVE YOU DOMINO!

Cheerleading and all things Payton

January has been a busy month for me. Payton has been the focus of most of my energy. We have really enjoyed our time together though!

Payton and I had a mother/daughter date night. We got mani/pedi's and went out for ice cream!

Payton started cheerleading for the Base YMCA, I am the team mom

You can't really tell but she lost 2 teeth! The adult teeth actually came in before the baby teeth came out. We were worried that she would have to have them pulled. The first one came out 12/23/10.

And with everything that has been going on, this is what most afternoons look like! She comes home from school, does her homework, then crashes on the couch! I have to wake her up after 30 min. or it would be impossible getting her to bed.

I just can't believe that my little girl has gotten so big. She is in school all day, has cheerleading 3 times a week, and is turning into such a mature person! We are trying really hard to enjoy these times with our kids, because they go by so fast!
