Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

6 More Weeks of Winter

It's my favorite month.  It's FEBRUARY!!!!!  Too bad the little groundhog said there would be 6 more weeks of winter...
That's okay, we are learning to make the best of it.  This was our last calm weekend for a while so we took advantage.
Only one scary moment for a LONG time!  We came home after going out to eat to hear Avery's carbon monoxide alarm going off.  Mark changed the battery and an hour later it went off again.  We ended up calling the fire department just in case.  It was really for our peace of mind.

Little did we know they would come with a big truck and two smaller trucks!  It really was amazing.  They checked everything out throughout the house with their machine and didn't even wake a kid up!  Everything was fine-it must have been when we started the car earlier.
Thursday was another snow day and Mark stayed home.  We loaded the kids up and headed somewhere...somewhere ended up being the mall. 

They burned some energy and we had a change of scenery.

The weekend was spent getting out and preparing for Valentine's Day!  This week will fly by and we will head into the weekend with Valentine's day celebrations, a cousins princess birthday party and my birthday!  Can't wait!
We will also have another update with Mack on Wednesday as we head to St. Louis for his appointment.  We are hoping to make plans for his tubie (aka central line).  Has now had it in a full year and we would love to have something in place for the summer.  He talks about his hopes for taking a shower like his sister, taking swim lessons, and jumping into the bathtub without worry!  I'm probably getting my hopes up, but 6 more weeks until summer, well in Mack's world that could come really fast!
