|It has been a beautiful February. I'm sure these animals are glad it is warmer too!|
|The dog and can't aren't exactly Milo & Otis, but they have learned to live in the same yard together.|
|Turn left at the first "drive" and you are at our house! You can kinda see the mountains in the distance.|

|Our Christmas packages have all made it! We stopped hoping they would arrive by Christmas and began hoping that they would make it at all, and this week the kids were so excited that this huge box from Papa and Grammy arrived.|
|Will dug right into the package along with his siblings. He laid right into it digging out goodies several times in all the excitement!|
He really likes his noise making toys- the one that makes animal noises makes him giggle.
|"Courageous" hit the theaters before we left the States, but since we had a new baby, we didn't see it. Anna, however, heard enough good things about it that it became her favorite movie even without being seen. Now, she finally has it!!|
|This is a face of "Is this really what I think it is?" It is a remote control helicoper which is flying all over our house these days.|
|Wow! What a lot of wonderful stuff. Thank you Papa and Grammy. Everyone was so pleased and we so appreciate the thought and love that went into this special and eagerly awaited box. We love you!|

Anna had patiently waited months to open the presents she had collected here because dilligent family members had brought/ sent gifts months in advance to cover all the kids' birthdays.
We had a nice day visiting a beauty salon and eating lunch at a Turkish restaurant before coming home to celebrate as a family.
|Nails and hair done at the salon.|
I love this happy smile! May your years be filled with smiles like this, sweet Anna.
