Here are some pictures from our vacation!

Kevin and me after spending 1/3 of our day on an airplane.

Gettin' some sun. Riding horses.

Eating at Bubba Gump. Beautiful sunset. Standing in front of a banyon tree as big as a city block!

Valentine's Day was very nice. We got to have Kevin home all day! Kevin and Kaitlin did some dancing and we just hung out and enjoyed having everyone together! We have exciting (well, it's exciting to me!) news around here! Ben went potty last night, this morning, and after his nap this afternoon! He is excited for himself. :) This past Friday night my car, which I somehow left unlocked, was broken in to! Yep, they stole my GPS out of the console and Kaitlin's wallet that had like $10 in it. It was so upsetting! And I got to teach Kaitlin all about "bad guys". She would like to, and I quote, "punch them in the face". She tells it like it is! But I did tell her that we don't need to do that. ;) Kiley is a little chatter box lately! I love it. It seems like a few months ago I couldn't get her to do anything but grunt at me! And today Ben kept coming up to me and saying Mama! He used to say it months ago, but he quit for the longest time...but now Mama is back! Ok, here are some pictures!

Warming up!

Well, it's been warming up here lately! Yesterday the kids were in shorts and t-shirts! I love that in Texas we can be in the 70's in the winter time. Today Kaitlin and Kiley are having their Valentine's Day parties at school...they are so excited! I've been busy getting our taxes done (woo-hoo). So, I should probably be doing them right now, but I am going to take a well deserved break! Last week Kaitlin read her first book, Go Dogs, Go!!!!! She is so excited! I can't believe she starts kindergarten this fall...only 7 more months of having her here all day. :( We plan on putting our house (in Rockwall) up for sale soon so we can move back to Fort Worth. Please pray that it sells quickly and we can get back soon! Tiffany and Neil find out what they are having soon. We're having her baby shower on March 14th. Oh, our vacation to Maui that we went on in January was soooo great! It was very relaxing and we got to see a ton of BIG waves. We rode horses, snorkled, drove to Hana (AGAIN!, 3 times we've driven this road that has over 600 turns!!), took hundreds of pictures, went to the beach, shopped, and ate some fabulous food! YUM. I love that the fish is so fresh. We had the best mahi-mahi with a mango salsa...mmm! Well, I need to find some time and get some pictures on here! The kids are growing so much. Everyday they do something new. It's crazy how fast time flies.
