February 25 These are the things Allie likes to play with in the tub. I took this picture for the Photo Challenge at ES. The color was awful since it was nighttime in a bathroom. So, lots of "playing" later, I came up with this.
February 26 It was a beautiful day. In the 80s I think, so after I picked Allie up from school, we went to the park to wait for Lance to be out of school. She loved it. I took so many pictures, but I really like the way this one turned out. Thanks to Milly for the processing technique on her blog. Very cool!

Well, I guess I can be proud that I made it a month and a half before missing a day, but I am pretty disappointed that I missed one! Hopefully I will do better.
February 19 I picked up Jeff for lunch and we got our passport pics made. The sweet girl at the store gave us both little pouches with travel size bottles and a passport wallet. They will definitely be used!
February 20 was spent at car dealerships. Apparently I didn't take any pics on this day. Bad, bad Kirsten!!
February 21 The first pic taken in the new car. The kids love it and Lance loves the fact that there is a third row for him alone. Silly boy!
February 22 Allie's princess dolls (and Star Wars Lego) laying out on the living room floor. She plays with these constantly. And yes, the Star Wars figure too.
February 23 Finally, a picture of the new car. A Mazda 5. NOT the car we went after, but the car we fell in love with. What can I say... Time to embrace the inner soccer mom.
February 24 Poor Lance is sick again. I swear, there is something about Texas that is making this family ill. He is never sick and this is twice in two weeks. Luckily (?) it is just fever. He doesn't seem to feel that bad, but has to stay home until it is gone. He had a good day playing video games, coloring and watching TV. Total and complete veg day for him!

February 10 Oh my! So much rain! School was actually called early today. Major storms hit Oklahoma and a tornado touched down about a mile from our old house. Glad to be in McKinney today!
February 11 I realized at 11:00 that I hadn't taken any pictures, so Cleo was a willing subject.
February 12 Lance being silly
February 13 The kids at the doctor's office. Lance has a sinus infection and is on antibiotics with his little sister. They were pretty cute laying on the bed waiting for the doc.
February 13 #2 I got a special delivery today! Love them! They are so pretty.
February 13 #3 Allie playing at PPP for the mom's group Valentine's party. Poor Lance had to stay home, but he and Jeff had a good time.
February 13 #4 The bags from the party. Lots and lots of kiddos!!
February 14 The kids oohing over their heart shaped pizza! Yummo! We had pizza and watched Madagascar 2 for Valentine's Day.
February 15 The American flag looking very pretty against the blue sky. This just kind of caught my eye and I am happy I stopped to get the pic.
February 16 Lance having spaghetti at Jason's Deli. Such a strange boy...

My washer of over 13 years has finally been replaced. It has been spitting out rust that then gets on the clothes. After getting a bunch of new shirts for Jeff for Christmas and then having them ruined, we decided to go ahead and get a new one. Funny though, it was hard to see it go. We got it when we very first got married. Luckily, the new one is HUGE and gets the stains out, instead of making new ones!

The Birthday Girl!! Happy Birthday by sweet little three year old!
We celebrated Allie's third birthday a day early since we have plans for tomorrow. She doesn't seem to mind though. LOL She had a great time.
I came across a robe our friend Kate gave Allie a while ago. It is still a little big, but she loved it!
It was such a nice day, the "kids" took a ride around the trails behind the house. Allie hasn't had much ride time in trailer and was super excited.
