Valentines at aunt Kathy's. Girls woke up to candy, balloons and bears from her! What a treat!

Playing at the park! 
See the resemblance!!
Dallas was practicing her cartwheels. 
Families are forever! Girls loved seeing the temple. The overwhelming peaceful feelings in there were undeniable. It truly is the house of the Lord. 

Aunt Kathy has 3 violins under her bed. Dallas couldn't wait to get them out! Then we left early so she was so bummed. She lived staying there. 

We went to the Arabian horse show and saw someone Jsnice Perkins who moved from Alabama. And a lady from our old ward. 

Layla had nurse maids elbow after Brenna pulled or yanked on her arm in the car. She could not move her arm at all. So after talking to the pediatrician, we went to the ER. I name dropped a nurse there and we were back home in less than 2 hours. They popped it back in and  it miraculously worked again. She was so happy. Hopefully Brenna learned her lesson. 
Baby Henry is sooo cute!!
Girls got to play for their day off school. We went on a long walk, went swimming, watched a movie, and went for ice cream.  Tomorrow night is the talent show!

Layla turns 3

Layla had a great birthday. It started off with fun the day before with the McCoys. I would have taken pictures but I lost my phone (later found in parking lot bushes in mud). Her birthday started off opening the nana birthday packages! She loved all her presents, then kids went to school. We fixed a flat tire. Then picked up kids from school and then family dinner at round table pizza. She was exhausted by the end of the night with so much fun!! Thanks for all the birthday wishes and gifts! It was a great day. She is such a joy to be with.
