One of my first assignments was to work on the New Beginning program with another leader. She happens to enjoy a pretty party as much as I do so it was a lot of fun.
Here are some pictures of the decorations. The girls loved them and seemed to have a really good time, so it was a success.
He wanted to make him a house so we found a jar with holes in the lid and he ran outside to get him some leaves and grass. After he put those in he looked at the house and said, "he needs a picture in his house." Then he quickle went to my craft room and found a mini "frame" that I have been meaning to make a necklace out of. Russ just laughed and said he is like me, and it is true. William does appreciate the beautiful things.

I showed them to you and you said you liked them. I am glad. People are always telling you how much they love your hair and your response is, "I know". You used to say thank you but I think since so many people tell you, you really feel like you already know. Your hair is getting pretty long. I trimmed it a little in the back before church but your dad and I are holding out for warmer weather and then going to do the annual buzz.
Maybe you will be okay with it because that is like Buzz Lightyear. That is one thing about you William, you are loyal to your movies and characters. Here you are in your Buzz jammies with your Woody toy.
This was a very sweet way to find you sleeping. Usually we find you in some pretty strange positions like this -
or this. And yes, I think that is pen on your arm.
You love being a brother and for the most part have lots of fun with Gracie although I do have to admit that you seem to enjoy terrorizing her and making her scream. Hopefully that will get better.
You love sweets, luckily they are not in the house all that often or that is all you would ask for. This picture was taken right before you told me the cookies I made were perfect. You are always giving such good compliments. You are always telling me and Gracie how pretty we look, especially if we are in a skirt or a dress. You LOVE it when I wear a skirt. Because it is cold out I wear pants now and you usually tell me I need to put a skirt on or ask me if I am wearing a skirt.

When William woke up and I told him Happy Valentines Day he said, "yeah Candy!" It was a good thing our sweet neighbor Michelle brought us some treats and a plant. They loved both.
later that afternoon we went to a
Gracie loved the balloons, the candy, and the dancing
William took his shoes off and ran around until his feet were black.
He thought that was pretty funny until he found out we had to go home because he wouldn't stop running around long enough to use the bathroom.
Ahh, such is life. Happy Valentines!

Yep, that's right a big Little Debbie cake. YUM! William was of coarse there to help me.
Here is Connie and Gracie singing happy birthday to me. I am not sure if Gracie sang with everyone else, but after everyone was done she sang her little version of Happy birthday mommy. It was really cute. And so is that little hand made dress I found at a thrift store. Russ loves it too, it looks so Austrian. We were able to blow out all 25 candles rather quickly.
