Valentine's Day 2015

The kids had a lot of fun celebrating at school on Friday. On the actual day we didn't do too much. We went grocery shopping and waited for the next snowstorm to begin. The kids got small boxes of chocolates and Mixels for a present and they enjoyed those!

I decorated our lattes with heart-shaped cinnamon!

We had sundaes for dessert. Jane helped to whip the cream.

This is what the snow looked like outside the window the next day. We can only see out the top windows in our living room!

snowflake hat

Malcolm liked this hat design and wanted me to make one for him. Very appropriate for all the snow we have!

lip sync 2015

Jane and Malcolm decided to perform at the lip sync together this year. They chose "Any Way You Want It" by Journey. It was the only rock song in the lineup!

They came up with all their own dance moves. They practiced almost every day!

last basketball

We got to basketball early and the hoops were higher than normal. Jane was up to the challenge of shooting into the higher baskets!

For their last scrimmage, the girls used the whole court instead of half.

Superbowl Sunday

Jane and I went to a yarn sale and I got her some yarn for a new hat.

I started the hat but she's working on the main part of it.
