Valentine's Day Inspiration @ Black Eiffel


Everything about it is exciting to me. I love to decorate with hearts and red and pink all over. It's my favorite!!! If you want a little help with ideas on some Valentines you should check out Black Eiffel (one of my favorite sites for decorating and other inspiration). I actually entered this card I made in her contest so don't forget to vote either! wink, wink!! (but really, you don't have to vote for mine cause there are some really cute ones on there that are hard to compete with!)

I love you all and wish you a very Happy Valentines Day tomorrow!! May it be filled with lots red and pink surprises!!!

The great outdoors and animal sounds

We went on a hike Saturday up Roxy Ann hill just behind my parents house. It's been so rainy lately it was nice to finally get outside with Emma.

She really enjoyed it too. She was talking the whole time. She also got a chance to do some hiking of her own. Yes folks, she walking. She has been for a couple weeks but this is the first chance she has had to strut her stuff out in the wild.

ps Mark thinks this beanie makes Emma look like a hobo.

Speaking of the wild, Emma has been working on her animal sounds. Her first one was the monkey believe it or not. We actually didn't even have to teach it to her, she's a natural! Enjoy!

It'll make you smile

My sister Kim found this song and I have listened to it so many times today that I couldn't help but share it with you all! I can't keep from smiling when I hear it!
Her name is Yael Naim and it's called New Soul. Enjoy!!

This is for you Carrie!!

Tonight we were at my parents house watching updates on Super Tuesday. When Huckaboo (yes, I know that's not his real name) came on the screen Emma walked up to the TV and started growling at him. I only caught the last bit of it but it gives you an idea of how Emma feels about tonights exit polls.

and.....I'm back!

I know it's been awhile...AGAIN! And I will fill you in soon on why it's taken me a while to get back to blogging but for now I am just going to post a few pics of all the fun that we've been having.
We've had so much snow here, it's crazy.

For more snow fun you can check out Spires Family blog

With all the snow we haven't been outside as much so Emma's been doing a lot of reading! :)

She LOVES books!
