The crazy month of February!

In between painting and trying to do fun things with the kids - somehow...February just flew by for me! :) I can't believe it is almost March! Here are some pics of the things that kept us crazy busy this month! I have no pics of Kyles last basketball game? What a terrible mom I am - no camera - forgot it at home? But he did great and he got the most improved player on the team. Amazing what one season can do! They are both just loving Basketball and sad that the season is over!

And the auction that I have been sanding, stripping, painting, etc. etc.....for....starts today. So as of 10:30 today - all my things will be dropped off and I will be done with this project! Whoo hooo. I have to admit that I am a bit sad? I really wish I had the time to keep on painting. It gets easier as I have learned to work with a new canvass....WOOD. Pottery is much more forgiving and so this has been a unique learning experience for me. But now that I know the ins and outs...I kind of wish I had another week. But let me promise you that my family is glad it is over! ha haha...maybe I can actually go to the grocery store...and clean the bathrooms? Nah...isn't there one more thing to paint in this house!!

Oh...and Josh has refused the highchair for the past two weeks and so I retired it to the garage. I am giving it to our baby sitter for her new little one. The table is a bit big for him, but his love of being like the other boys...far outweighs that struggle! Here are some pics!
