1. Valentine's Day was a huge hit around here. We ate pizza with the girls on Friday, Grammy and Grandad came over with Valentine love on Saturday, and Lee made me a delicious fancy dinner for Saturday night. I love Valentine's Day.

3. I tried to go down an Honest Path with Joya, and let her know that I was throwing away one of her art projects since she had made me a new one. Tears galore. I told her we had been enjoying it for weeks, and now it was time to enjoy her new drawing. Apparently that was a terrible reason. So I told her I would take a picture of her with it and post it for all to see.
4. On top of all of this, Bria has been battling some kind of virus. She's had a hacking cough and intermittent fever. She seemed pretty good yesterday morning, but then took a turn for the worse yesterday afternoon. I had been out all afternoon with Alaina at the eye doctor, so when we got home around 5:30, Lee was trying unsuccessfully to feed her dinner. She looked so sad and pathetic and had a fever. She was also doing a funny breathing thing. I called our doctor's office and talked to a nurse, and after having the nurse listen to her on the phone, she agreed that she should be seen within the hour. So on the eve of Bria's 2nd birthday, we took an evening trip to urgent care. They all commented on how toasty she was, but her oxygen levels were fine.
5. And today Bria turns 2! We're supposed to have a family party for her on Sunday, but we're also supposed to have our own snowmeggedon this weekend. So we'll see how it all plays out.
