Yeah, we realize it may be time to lay off the nature shows around here for a while.

Viewer discretion is advised.
I've said it here before, but for some reason I really love Valentine's Day. And I heard a rumor this might be Zach's last year to exchange valentines in school.
The heart says, "Valentine, I think you're KOOL."
Normally I'm not a fan of intentional misspelling, but this year I made an exception.
Just 64 Lifesavers, 64 sticks of gum, 32 Smarties, and 32 rubber bands later, they were done.
Me: "Okay, first take your brown owl body out of the baggie I gave you and put it on your desk. We're not gluing yet, okay? Then take the yellow chest piece and put it ON the brown body, but DON'T glue it just yet. We want to lay it all out FIRST before we glue anything to make sure we know what we're doing. Got it? Lay it out first..."
Random kid: "Hey, I glued mine wrong. Can I have another?"
Me: (Slapping my own forehead) "Sheesh."Thelma decided to get in on the spirit of the holiday by taking a nap in the sunshine while lying on a chalk drawing on the back patio. When she came inside it took me a minute to figure out why she was Pepto Bismol pink!
(The photo doesn't do her bright pink hue justice because it was quite hysterical.)
We hope your Valentine's Day was happy! Thanks to the box of See's chocolates and dinner from Oregano's that Nate brought home, ours was!

The shoe on the left is one of my normal running shoes and the shoe on the right was a Christmas gift from 2003 that's completely falling apart.
AND it took nearly two miles before I looked down and even noticed.
I'll bet you're feeling a lot better about yourself right now, aren't you?

Noah has a new favorite food...
And we're just as stumped about it as you are. For years, this child has had a thing for meatballs.
An obsession, really.
And perhaps you haven't heard, but this kid is picky. How many children do you know that refuse to drink chocolate milk, despise having jam on their peanut butter sandwiches, and also pick the breading off their own chicken nuggets?
And yet, he enjoys FISH. And broccoli. In fact, earlier this week it was Tilapia Tuesday at our house (per his request), and since I wasn't home for dinner, Nate sent me this photo of Noah enjoying his favorite meal.
So I realize I must be doing something right...
But then, it could just be that Noah is truly an old soul stuck in a 7 year old body, because for a while, he really had a thing for bran flakes.
