First Mason's birthday! We picked him up and as per usual with most of the kids, he knew what he wanted to shop for. Although there were Lego involved, he also had a couple of other ideas, and it didn't take long to finish that trip. Lunch of choice was McDonalds, and Lindsay and Connor were there as well, so we ended up with a family lunch.
Mason enjoying his 6th birthday day dessert and his birthday party that we were still home to attend.
Next birthday up was Emerson. Emerson was so excited for her 11th birthday treat! She knew she wanted some new clothes and what stores to.find them in so off to West Edmonton Mall we went. She's a bit slower shopper then the boys, and by the time shopping and dinner were over we were DONE! I don't mind that she wanted clothes but as she gets older I like to see her still wanting a few toys, hence a picture with some sloths.
Okay now we are on to Connor's birthday. He's turning 8! He also pre shopped a bit amd knew lego was in his future. So we visited Master Mind Toys. He was excited to receive his birthday money as cash. He found a wallet at home and did a very good job of paying forems amd having his money counted.
I did say February is busy! We also have a tradition we try to keep of visiting the West Ed Waterpark with all the grandkids. Everyone except Blake, now that he's in Junior High, have a week day off in February called Faith Day. So its just the 4 kids now. We have an absoljey fun filled wet exhausting day! It will be sad as the numbers decrease as ages increase, we nigjt have to look at a different day or time.
One totally non birthday item we dealt with this month was booking the hall for our 40th Anniversary!! We are so excited to host this. In Don's mom's family her and all her siblings had big hall anniversary parties and we wanted to do the same. It seems surreal that the hall is booked. I'll share more details as we get closer.
So we are now a day away from departimg for the south!
I can't miss two other very important February birthdays! Our son in laws Cal and Jeremy. No birthday visits or special lunches. LOL I wonder where they would go to spend their gift money amd lunch with us?
February to be continued:)
