Daddy and I were gifted with a marriage retreat from our awesome friends that recently moved back up to the cities area.  We called up Nana and Bapa to come watch the kids, and we took off early on Friday morning....

On Friday, we went to Five Guys for the first time, and it was just amazing....we are big fans!

We got to our retreat center, and were reunited with our friends!!!
We also made lots of new friends, too!

It was such a nice time away from life, and I think we may have even learned a thing or two!

Our table for the weekend! :)

We went to church on Sunday, Noodles, and then off back home.  We drove over 4 hours through an awesome winter storm to get back to our kiddos....

They had fun while we were gone, too!  Nana took some pics!

love, valentines, slime, babies and permits

I've been on an organizing kick lately.  All of our memories and photos have been looked at and kept or thrown.  What was fun, was finding all of the emails, cards and letters that Daddy and I sent to each other before and during our dating years.  I put them all together by date, and got a binder to put them in.  When I asked Daddy what I should call it, he said "the Hurt Locker" :) 

lots of tears, happiness, hurt and joy mixed in these pages!

The Sunday before Valentines' day, mr Finn hadn't been to get a hair cut, and it was getting rather long in front....

with 3 girls in the house, we knew how to solve that problem ;)

Liv and Finn gave out shaving cream fluffy slime for valentine's day this year!  Quite a fun project!

Winnie also needs a hair cut!  good grief!

Thursday night, we had our friends' baby Elisha over for a couple hours.  It went too quick, and it was lots of fun!  Finn really enjoyed having a baby around.  He helped feed him, and kept calling him "cute" :)

Last Monday, Avery took her permit test.....and PASSED!  Now, she has up to 5 years to learn how to drive, and once she has it down, she can test (after August). 

A Valentines Day she will never forget!

random this and that....

Finn and Avery went on a "date" the other night downstairs to watch a movie :)
He only lasted about 30 minutes, but a fun memory for them! 
I'm still over here working on next years Christmas tree decor :)

We've been making slime for the kiddos to play with, and Liv had her friend Lily over, and we made some up and had some fun! :)

Last night, Daddy, Avery and I went to high school orientation.  Let that sink in.... ;(

Daddy goes on a trip....

We sent Daddy away for a rest and relaxation trip this last week.  I seemed to take quite a bit of pics to send to him so he didn't miss us TOO much :)

We made slime!  Finn and Liv loved it so so so much!  Finn would spend a loooooong time just playing with it all by himself! :)

The weather was pleasant out on Wednesday, so we went out in the front and played in the snow a bit :)

Little did they know that Nana was coming again!!!  Such a fun surprise! :) 

Liv enjoyed quite a bit of art projects while daddy was gone!

A fun night at Walmart and then followed by Culvers!

I let Olivia stay home on Friday to watch the inauguration.  She also painted our church friend this picture to say thank you for making her some amazing mac and cheese!

She LOVED it :)

Saturday, Liv went to a dance camp.  That night, she got to perform at the High School basketball game.  It was our first time!

Liv wanted to make daddy a special sign for his office while he was gone!  She was so proud of it! :)
