Loving Day, as Joe calls it, started off with the creating of Valentine cards for Daddy.

I have great news to share! We're one step closer to adopting Rebekah...parental rights were terminated this morning and our family has become the adoptive placement for her. The fast-track process is really living up to its name. Now we wait for paperwork to be completed and the rest of the 6-month waiting period to end. We're still looking at a possible June adoption date. Thanks to everyone for the continued prayers, love and support!

Believe it or not, not every American was watching the Super Bowl yesterday. Some of us went to the rodeo instead. Normally the rodeo is jam-packed on weekends, but I had a hunch that the crowds would be a lot thinner during the big game. When we arrived at 5:00 and saw a steady stream of people leaving the grounds, I knew my hunch had paid off.
Here's the pre-rodeo group shot from last year:
Aw, still as cute as ever! All right, on to the fun!
We had front-row seats to the snake demonstration. Here are the three big kids following directions by using one finger to gently touch a snake:

The neighbor kids were already playing out front so we bundled up after a quick breakfast and joined the fun.
The group shot.
After playing out front for a while, we headed inside to drink hot chocolate and warm up for a few minutes and then went to the backyard to check out the conditions there.
We did a little shoveling with sand tools. After a few minutes Daniel declared, "I want to go to the beach!"

Yesterday I shooed the kids outdoors to enjoy the beautiful, balmy day. With the chilly weather on its way I wanted them to soak in the warm sunshine while they could. Only in South Texas can you enjoy 78 degrees one day and then drop down to 18 degrees the very next! Rumor is we may even seen snow on Thursday. I'll let you know.
Anyway, the kids set upon themselves to prove that you don't need a body of water to utilize a pool noodle. See for yourselves:
