Lately, Sweetie and her friends have been obsessed with Rainbow Looming. Check out Sweetie's jewelry designs.

Sweetie's other obsession this past month was the opera that her A.L.L. class put on. Sweetie was an i-pad and spent plenty of time preparing her costume and practicing her songs. It was fun to see the finished show come together!

Lastly, Sweetie spent February taking as many tumbling classes as possible since her tumbling teacher announced his retirement at the end of the month. We are so sad to see him go!

Schmalentine's Day

Valentine's Day came fast this year--right on the heels of our trip to Arizona. Let's just say we weren't ready. The night before, we were still paper-macheing Olaf's head and trying to figure out how to tape a bowl to a box. But, Friday morning, I went out bright and early and cut a few twigs for Olaf's head and arms, I convinced Mister to give up the dream of having his toilet box actually flush (by recording it on his I-touch and taping that to the toilet as the handle), and I drove them to school with Valentine boxes, Valentines, Valentine party assignments, but without their lunches. So, I returned, still in my sweats, lunchboxes in hand, just as Sweetie's class was headed to lunch.

Usually, we get take-out and give the kids little Valentines from us, but this year, we had hook-ups for Valentine's Day, thanks to J's cousin who manages PF Chang's, so J and I escaped the Valentine madness by heading to Salt Lake City and to the restaurant where, as it just so happens, we celebrated our first Valentine's day as a couple 14 years ago.
