February is a Crazy Month

Mark and I both celebrate our birthday this month! In fact, our birthdays are only four days apart. It's totally against the "rules" to marry someone with your same sign, but for us, two Aquarius's is a match made in heaven!

Boston is celebrating his first birthday on the 12th. All the kids are really excited for his birthday. Macie wants to have a birthday party for him and invite all of his dog friends from the neighborhood. She wants party hats, doggy treats - the whole works - so cute!Last, but not least, is Valentines Day. Our kids especially look forward to Valentine's Day because they are always visited by a "mystery admirer" who leaves them fun surprises on the doorstep! February 14th was also my Grandpa Bert's birthday. Each Valentine's Day I am flooded with childhood memories of going to his house to celebrate his birthday and exchange valentine's with all of my cousins - for me, it was as exciting as Christmas! The memories are definitely bitter-sweet, but I would not trade them for the world! I only hope to give my children the opportunity to create such meaningful memories!

Happy February!!!
