Visiting Great Grandpa Forte


 John and Andrew were sharing secrets at the table.  We went out to lunch with Grandpa Forte and Uncle John before heading to visit Great Grandpa Forte.
We had a nice visit with Great Grandpa.  He doesn't have much energy but he got enough to play a few games of Sequence with us.  It's been a rough road for Grandpa...we're praying for a good recovery for him.

Van's Birthday Party

Andrew's classmate Van had his birthday party at the bowling alley.  James and Andrew went out for the afternoon.  James said that the boys had a blast.  They bowled, ate pizza, cake, and jumped in a bounce house.  I guess the boys liked the bounce house a bit more than bowling because James said the boys kind of gave up on bowling and then would run out real quick, throw the ball, and run back to the bounce house.

Who can turn up a chance to pop some bubble wrap.

Building New Lego's

The kids went with James to the store.  Andrew spent some of his birthday money to get the Lego Hulk set.  Adeline also decided to get a Lego set with some of her money that she has had saved.  They were all hard at work at the table when I got home.

Heart Pizza's for Dinner



Olivia came over to stay the night and go to church tomorrow.  We all made our very own heart pizza's!  YUM!

Special Packages

The kids had special packages to open from Grandma Bean and envelopes to open from Nana with $ in it.  These kids sure make out pretty good!


Valentine's Day Crafts...

 The kids painted cute little sun catchers.....

 And then we each made our own Elephant Valentines.  Andrew's is blue and Addy's is Pink.  
James and I also made our own too.

Valentine's Day Fun!!!

 I surprised the kids and James this morning with a special Valentine's Day Breakfast.  We are going to have a fun day making crafts, making fun food, and enjoying each other's company!!
 The pancakes didn't turn out to be the best looking hearts but you can get the idea.



My three Valentine's!!!!

Andrew shaving


I just came across this video of Andrew and James.  This must have been from the morning when James was getting ready for work.  I love it.  Such a big boy wanting to be just like Daddy

Adeline's Valentine Celebration 2015



Addy's teacher sent us some pictures from their class celebration.  This year there was no actually party just a small time where they had a few snacks and opened valentines.  Adeline is looking so grown up.

The After Party

After the party the Bean's and Forte's all came back to our house where we had a mini celebration for Josh and I.  We ordered pizza, had more cake and ice cream, and opened a few more presents.


 Andrew got his very own Coke bottle.
I got to enjoy my time sitting next to my Grandpa.  That was by far my best birthday gift.
