Tanner's Lunch Date!

**Today's post brings us up to date! Yay!! Make sure you scroll down as there have been a lot of posts the past few days :) 

Tanner's "girl"friend Kaylee had Monday off from school along with her mom so they wanted to have a playdate with Tanner. Unfortunately we had a makeup day because of all the snow. Instead of missing another chance Kaylee met Tanner at school for lunch! They brought Chick-fil-a and had a great time with each other! Tanner was the happiest boy the rest of the day :)

Noah and Auntie Ann's Birthday!

Noah turned 31 on Saturday and Auntie Ann turned 50 on Sunday. Mimi and Auntie Deb came down to celebrate and we spent the weekend with lots of fun activities. Saturday we went over to Auntie's house for a big breakfast after letting Noah sleep in a little and giving him his presents - a new grill which we will all enjoy! After breakfast we all went bowling and then to Shogun. We took the kids home and headed out to The Eagle's Nest for some fun with some great friends. We had never been there but had an awesome time and will certainly go back!

Sunday morning we were all a little hungover, but I got up with the kids and then Noah kept Izzy, Tanner and Rowan so Amy and I could go celebrate Ann's 50th at Croc's Drag Yourself to Brunch. We all had a great time and we're so glad we got to celebrate both Noah and Ann's birthday together with friends and family!

Valentine's Day

This year we made Noah 14 valentines, one for each day in February leading up to valentines day. It was fun and the kids couldn't wait to get his treat out each day. I got to chaperone the middle school dance and Noah had to work late so there was no special date for us but we had a nice day anyway and have been enjoying each other's company whenever we can.
Chicks Dig Super Heros!
You're My Main Squeeze and You Blow Me Away Valentines!
Noah hates commercial holidays and usually doesn't do much for them but this year I got a delivery of two dozen roses, chocolates, bath salts, and a teddy bear! It was quite a surprise :) The kids had a great time at school and reading their new books from us. 
It was also the 100th day of school so there were some crazy celebrations for that as well!!
Hope everyone was able to show the love on this special day!

Sunny Florida!

February 5-9 Noah and I took 15 students to Orlando for the DECA Sports and Entertainment Conference. We were so excited to get away from the snow and get to the warm of course that means that it was rainy and cold the whole time we were there! While the weather was miserable, the students were not and we had a great time anyway. DECA does a great job making this conference fun and full of great information so we love going every year and playing in the parks isn't so bad either :) This year we visited both Universal parks and Magic Kingdom, went to the Blue Man Concert, and heard from speakers from Universal, the NBA, NASCAR, and more!

Snow Tubing

We took the kids and my parents to Massanutten for the last weekend in January to spend some time with my mom before she had surgery and started treatments. We weren't able to get the kids in ski school like we had planned but we had a blast at the water park on Saturday. Tanner rode every big slide which is huge for him since he doesn't like rides at all and other than my mild heart attack when I couldn't find Izabel (Noah had taken her to the bathroom but I didn't know) we all had a blast.

Sunday we got up early and hit the first snow tubing session so it wouldn't be as crowded as later in the day. I was worried about how the kids (mainly Tanner) would do with the big hill in a tube by himself but they both did great and LOVED it. We will definitely be going back with them lots of times and getting them into ski school too!
