Valentines Day/Birthday!

Valentines Day is always fun around our house because not only is it Valentines Day but it is also Eric's birthday! We usually celebrate Valentines day in the morning with a little Valentine from Mom and Dad, followed by a yummy pink heart pancake breakfast. Eric gave me some yummy perfume and chocolates but my favorite gift was the fun love notes we wrote to each other. Sadie even wrote one to the baby. It was very cute! Last minute we decided to do heart hair. Luckily I remembered how from last year! Hailey informed me she wants to do this every year! After school we moved into birthday mode. We started making a BBQ Rib dinner for Eric and wrapped all of his presents. We headed to the dollar store for some balloons and then we just waited for Dad to get home! The girls were so excited to get the party started! Our dinner turned out so yummy and we ended with some red velvet birthday cake. The girls each gave Eric a gift but I think Hailey was the most excited with her Jimmer movie! Brinley and Sadie gave him some indoor Soccer shoes and a basketball! It ended up being a great day!

It's a Girl

January was a super long month because we had to wait until Jan 31st to find out if we were having a girl or a boy. Brinley and Hailey really wanted a brother and Sadie wanted another sister. Well I told the girls I would make them a cake. Pink if it was going to be a girl or blue if it was going to be a boy. They were so excited when they got home from school to see what color the cake was. When Sadie cut it open and it was pink everyone was pretty excited except for Brinley. She didn't quite know what to think and was just sure it was a boy. She wanted a brother so bad. It took the whole afternoon for her to get a little happier about this. She still isn't quite sure about it but I think when she see's her cute little sister she will be fine! To be honest I am super happy to have another girl. Girls are what we do best! I wouldn't even know what to do with a boy! Eric was just sure it was another girl and he was right! He loves his girls and they would do anything for him. He is the best Dad. We can't wait for this little one to get here!
