David had given Brooke some ice cream but it was all gone. I was touched that Logan was willing to share his with his sister. (Face it, Folks! Momma wasn't even gonna share that stuff with the baby!) I know these photos aren't the best quality, but put together, you can see how the ice cream sharing went.
Five loaves and two fishes - John 6
The kids loved it!
Of course, the kids are very excited about this.

We had a fun Valentine's day. I made heart-shaped cookies and rice crispie treats. They were a big hit, along with the little Valentine goodie bags the kids received.
Brooke is all girl, and I am just thrilled about that! She loves to put one of my necklaces on and wear it around the house. Of all her toys, Brooke plays with her tea set every day. I think that is the cutest thing. She is learning new words all the time and her little girly voice saying, "Okay!" is so cute!
Here is an example of a conversation we have with Brooke almost every day:
Boys: Brooke, say "Da-da."
Dad: Brooke, say "Momma."
Mom: Brooke, say "Cole."
Boys: Brooke, say "Logan."
Boys: Say "Trevor."
We laugh every time and then tease Trevor and Logan about their new names.
I really hope the weather hasn't been teasing us. It is so pleasant outside. There are just a few patches of snow on the ground here and there, but none at our house. I was outside without a jacket today. David pulled his motorcycle out of the barn and has been giving the kids rides around the lane. It is really idyllic. I'm looking forward to spending some time in the yard soon.
