Family and Valentine's Day

My whole family came out here for the first weekend in February to see the Young Ambassadors show - where Lexie, Hilary, and my cousin Jordan are on the tech crew and my cousin Josh is a performer. We got to do a lot of fun things with them, including going out to ice cream, going to dinner, making eggs benedict for breakfast, and going to the Bean museum. It was a fun weekend!

This past weekend for Valentine's Day we just had a little party with the three of us. We made spinach dip and cake balls (recipe courtesy of and watched a movie. Oh, and we also bought some yummy cupcakes from Mindy ( I'd give you pictures of those, because they were so cute, but... we ate them all. They were so good.

Anyway, here are pictures for you, and another (better) video of Owen laughing.

Chilling with daddy.

With daddy and the white rhino at the Bean museum.

Wiped out after looking at all the animals.

Waiting to be seated at Macaroni Grill.

"What's up?!" Sweet guitar sweatshirt he got for Christmas.

All bundled up in his snowsuit so we can go up on campus to meet daddy.

He reminded me of this guy...

He didn't fit in his carseat with the snowsuit on, haha.

Wearing a sticker we got from the Honor Code office that says "Hug Me, I'm Honorable."

And finally, another video of him laughing.

Oh. My. Goodness. That video of him laughing is so cute. I can't wait for my little baby boy to come (32 days) so I can love on him!

Liz and Scott said...

Love the snow suit - my first thought was A Christmas Story. I love his laugh too. We have to bend over backwards to get Will to smile, let alone laugh.

Woo hoo!! He's so cute! We can't wait to see him again. 30 more days -- what new tricks can he learn in that time?

SO cute! I'm glad you enjoyed the cupcakes! Thanks for the shout out!
