Happy Valentines Day!!!

I hope you all enjoyed your Valentines Day. I know I did!! Both my Sisters families were here and it was such a blast! We had a full house but it was a lot of fun. So much fun that I did not get any pictures. Bug had a soccer tournament in St. George so they just stayed here with us. She played awesome and they took first in the tournament. It is so much fun to watch her team play because they play so well together as a team for their age. So we spent all day Saturday and Monday watching her. Sunday we all just hung out at my house and played some Rock Band and watched movies. Shakiah brought her friend Whitney so we had a lot of fun!! Needless to say I have not done that much for a long time so Monday night I went to bed at like 8:00!!! Really unusual for me! I am so glad they came down and it was so fun to see them all. The only bad thing is they brought the Cache Valley weather with them so it was not very warm!! One of my best friends(Nicci) stopped by on Thursday on her way to St. George and it was so fun to see her, her hubby, and cute little Brin. I love her to death and look up to them both so much!!! They are great people and hope that she will be back to visit again when it is a little warmer. So my weekend was packed full of great visitors and fun times!! Thanks guys for coming down to visit. I love you all and miss you even more!!!

Once again we had such a great weekend and week so far. Of course we had a Super Bowl party with Ryan's family. It was so much fun! We had sandwiches and snackies but the game was a little upsetting. I was really cheering for the underdogs. At least it was a good game and not a blow out. Then my mom came down Monday night and just left this morning. It was so much fun to have her here. We had our days full of activities which mostly consisted of shopping. We went to St. George on Tuesday and found her some cute birthday outfits. She was just loving the warm weather. We sat outside on the porch both days and just let the kids ride their bikes. It was so nice!!! So thank you mom for making my week!! We love you lots! Then we went to our doc on Tuesday as well and got nothing but amazing news!! Our baby boy is doing awesome and growing quickly. He is 5 pounds 5 ounces already so now they have pushed his due date up to the 14th instead of the 19. All good with me!!! She could not see any sign of a tear on my placenta so it has completely healed over and no blood clot!!!! I was so excited I could have cried. Once again something to keep my testimony growing. I know the Lord does look after us and answers our prayers! So I could not be happier with my week. I thought these pictures were so cute of him(I am hoping Braxton) but yes his nose is huge. She said he is really close to the surface so it is really smushed but he looks just like his daddy!!
