So independent!

This afternoon Luke asked if he could play games on the computer. I wasn't in the mood, so said not right now. Alexis offered to play with him, so I said sure. I have been so tired lately and all I wanted to do was lay down, so I went into Alexis' room (nicest room in the house by far right now!) and layed down on her bed. I was just listening to them play and dozing a little. After 30 minutes I got up and did some laundry. After an hour they decided they were done. Not once during this hour did they argue or even say my name. It was so nice! I even heard them tell each other "I love you" once. They are getting so grown up and play together so well (most of the time anyway!)
I think I spoke too soon. I hear screaming now...

February Fun

Here's a quick recap of our February.
We started off the month celebrating Alexis' birthday.

Next came Valentine's day, complete with heart shaped pancakes!

Chris installed the skylight in our "soon to be" bathroom and also got all the sheetrock up and plumbing done! Yeah!

We had some nice days that led us to believe spring was on it's way, only to be tricked by mother nature and wake up to snow the next day.

We spend a night at Grammy and Pop's while Chris worked on the house (the usual) and played with Baxter and Eliot.

Jon and Heather, the rockstars, visited. They came up with the names all on their own and got all ready for their fancy party.

This is their new favorite way to sleep. They go to bed together almost every night in Alexis' bed. I move Luke to his room once he's asleep. It's so sweet!

That pretty much sums up our month!
