Painting, Meeting Max & V-Day...

We have been up to some fun stuff around here so I need to make a long post with lots of pictures!

One night we decided to have another "Family Fun Night"... this time we included my parents. We had a picnic on the floor by the fire place and we got out the finger paints! Instead of painting on paper we decided to paint our faces. Gavin got a little carried away and he was covered in paint!

This weekend we were planning on making a trip to see our nephew Paxton, of course his parents too... however, Paxton got RSV (please keep him in your prayers!). On the way we were going to stop and meet Max and his family. I am glad we decided to go meet them anyway! We have never met in person. Kelly and I talk on the phone, email, etc. As I have said before, she is such a kind hearted person. She is constantly thinking of other children and praying for them, even through her own trials with Max. We have a mutual connection, Kristen & Kim. So we had lots to talk about! We had a blast and it was so much fun to watch the boys play and interact. Kelly got a picture of the whole group on her camera. So I will post that when I get it from her. We had a great time J. Family... hope to do it again soon!!!

For Valentines Day we had a candle lit dinner at home. We had lasagna -from scratch, bruschetta, home made pizza, salad with olive garden dressing and lots of yummy desserts! We dressed up and had fun lovey songs playing in the background. I had two very handsome dates, but one of them decided to check out early and go to bed. It was a wonderful, romantic evening with two of the best men in my life!

Aunt Kiki feels sad and left out! But I have the cutest family ever!

Your "Family Fun Night" looks like it was definitely fun! What a great idea to paint each other's faces. Gavin looks hilarious with his body covered in paint. :)

Looks like you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day celebration!! I think it's so cool that you got all dressed up for a special date at home. How fun!! Gavin looks so handsome!

We've been so sad that you weren't able to come see us this past weekend. :( Paxton is usually really healthy, and I hate that he got sick the one weekend we actually had plans. Hopefully we can reschedule and see each other soon!!

Oh my goodness, that looks like SOOO much fun! I bet the grandparents had just as much fun as Gavin.

I am loving your date night idea and that you dressed up and everything. I must say Gavin is just the most handsomeness little man. Oh my goodness, just to cute with his little collar "popped" up.

Lovely pictures - what fun! We will keep Gavin in mind as he goes in for his Cath (end of March). God Bless your little family.
