The last couple of months

February is here!!! Ahh...the month of love, and kisses, and hugs, what could be better! We have had such a busy time since Christmas, I have finally found a moment to sit and think over all we have done this last couple of months.

As most of you know we went to Kauai right after New Years. We spent 10 days there with my family, Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother in law and 2 nieces. We had an absolutely amazing time, and wish we were back there pretty much every day.

We returned home and got a surprise visit from my Grandpa. So we got to spend about 5 days visiting with him, and enjoying his company. The weekend after that we got the opportunity to go to San Antonio and see Chris's brother Jon graduate from basic training. We also got to visit with the rest of the Ingram family, mom and dad, sister Ali, Grandma, and Aunt Trish, Uncle Mark and the cousins. It was a really fun three days, and really special to be able to be with so much of the Ingram family. The kids were attached to Auntie Ali and Uncle Jon, and we had a great time all around. We were able to go to the River Walk and do some shopping. It was really fun!
Let's see other milestones this last couple of months...Cailey just turned 5.
We still are having a hard time believing we are parents of a 5 year old. We had a birthday party for her in Hawaii, and then we celebrated her actual birthday in San Antonio. She was very blessed this year to be able to celebrate with so much family. Now that she is five she has decided that she doesn't want to sleep with her blankie anymore "too babyish" she says, and she can blow a bubble, she is quite bossy to anyone younger than her, and is SO excited to start kindergarten next year. She is a joy and we are very proud of what a sweet and kind little girl she is turning into.

Caleb hasn't really hit any major milestones lately. He is still fascinated with cars, he ALWAYS has one in hand, and sleeps with one everynight. He is a sweet, sweet boy and is very easy most days, and content with life.

That's about it! Life is going fairly smoothly and we are just trying to enjoy it. These last few pics are of Valentines day. Chris was very sweet and sent me flowers to work. We had a great day on Valentines, took the kids to breakfast, and Cailey went to a birthday party. We just enjoyed each other and were very thankful for all the blessings and love we have in our lives. God is good. Of course I had to include one of Honey (our sweet 5 month old lab). I know that was long and there is total picture overload, I decided to get caught up all at once! Love and miss you all.
