What the February??!!

Yep, February is here and gone ALREADY! Holy Cow!

Once again I find myself overwhelmed by the fact that I have not blogged in a while and I need to play catch-up! Once I get behind, I just keep putting it off because it seems like so much work, so to the one or two of you that care I apologize for not updating!

Here are some pictures from the first week of Febuary, we tried to get a pic of all 4 of us, but Lily was a MEGA beast that day and would have none of it! Which is crazy because she normally LOVES to smile for the camera!

The second week of Feb I was sicker than a dog (what does that mean do you think? Seriously, I wonder where that comes from). Anyway, it was horrible because Izzie isn't a very good sleeper at all and when you aren't getting ANY sleep it is SO hard to get better. So I was pretty miserable, here is a huge shout out to my blessed mother-in-law (who doesn't acually read this, but that is beside the point) who took Lily to play at her house a couple of days so I could rest when Izzie would. I have the best MIL ever!
The 3rd weekend of Febuary we went to Thatcher for my Grandpa's 83rd birthday. Here is my Grandpapa and GG with Isabel.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Grandparents SSOOOOO much. They have had as much impact as anyone I know on shaping who I am. My grandpa was pretty much it as far as male influences in my life growing up and he truly is my favorite person next to Matt and my girls. It is hard to watch as he gets older and his physical and mental state wears with age. My grandma is the strongest person I know, but I still worry about her. I can't imagine what it will be like as Matt and I get older and need to take care of each other. It is alot to deal with. Anyway, it was good to see them, it is ALWAYS good to see them. I respect them more than anyone I know. I miss them SO much and if it were up to me I would move back to Thatcher just to be near them. AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!

While we were in Thatcher we decided to have a birthday party for Lily since her birthday is 3 days after grandpa's and Matt would be back at work on her actual birthday. We had a great time! It was so good to get my family and friends together,

and although it was a little windy and the park, it was perfect for flying the kite that Matt got for Lily.

Mange and I even liked it :)

My mom of course made Lily a great cake! It is a lady bug since Lily's nickname is LilyBug (and we call Isabel IzzieBee)

It didn't just LOOK good, it tasted pretty good too!This is one of my BFF's Cindy and her husband Joe and their son JJ, later this afternoon she went into labor (with a little magic juju from me) and the next day she gave birth to a beautiful little girl named Sophie Tatiana :)
This is mama savage and Sophie!

This is Matt teaching our nephew Braxton some guitar chords at a family party we had for our nephew Colton's 1st birthday the last week of February.Here are some videos of the girls this week!
