Meeing Tyler

Last weekend the kids had a four day weekend. I decided I didn't want to wait until summer to meet Tyler (my brother's baby), plus I have been lonely and stressed with Jared gone every night since Christmas (minus a few nights here and there). I'm so glad we went. There is something so special about a brand new baby. I'm glad I got to hold and snuggle him and visit with my family.

We left Friday night and got into Phoenix late. The first night we stayed with my sister Jen. It was fun seeing her home and hanging out with her, even if it was for a short time.
Saturday we headed to my brother's house. Devin was so excited and made me stop on our way there so he could pick out a toy and outfit. He wanted a shirt that said "Our new baby" but we didn't find one so we settled on a different outfit. Devin was so cute the whole time--he was so into Tyler and wanted to hold him a lot. He probably got to hold him more than I did. 

We went on a little walk to a park later that day. It was really warm...and Devin had been asking if he could jump in the pool so I finally just let him. The water was cold! He didn't stay in long. Addie jumped in once also.

Tyler did this a lot with his hand---he likes to have it by his face. It was so sweet.
 That night we had dinner with Jen and Jake and played a very fun game!
The next morning. All the grandkids.
After a while we headed to Payson to see my parents. Also my brother James was in town with his new girlfriend so we had to meet her.

Jen and Jake!

 I probably should have named this post, "Pictures of people holding Tyler." I just couldn't help myself. He is a really cute baby.

Valentines Day

Valentines day was another busy day here at the Christensen home. Every year my mom sends a Valentines Day package. They got this a few days before and they just loved it!

I made heart shaped French toast for breakfast.

Took a few pictures of the girls before taking Adalynn to school

 This was the day before, but wanted to post this one of C and A. They were so excited I let them put lip stick on.
Sent Addie off with balloons and treats for both of her preschool classes (her afternoon class only has four students total, so I figured we could do both). I also made treats for Devin's class.

 Then for dinner we had red soda and a heat shaped pizza. I think the kids had a nice day. We saw Jared for about 10 minutes at dinner, so it could have been better. But in a week the bar will be over and we will be on our way to California for a much needed break, just the two of us!

Playing outside
It has been in the 60's here. Perfect weather. I love this time of year.

I do this every year...I put little toys, candies, etc. in the kids mailboxes starting February 1st. Just little things to let them know how much I love them. I really should bling these out...the look kinda plain.
 Today I left them cookies
And speaking of cookies, I made these the other day--peanut butter M&M cookies. I love that little floating pink heart.
