the big white bed has grown bigger
both in size and in carrying weight.
there are five who now need the comfort
early mornings and staying up late.
the newest no longer a newborn
but still baby nevertheless;
two older boys getting taller
their limbs ever growing endless.
yet continue the snugs and the cuddles
the laughter mingled with tears,
a safe place to talk and to wonder,
to dream and express muddled fears.
ever onward in gathering lovers
the babies the children the wed,
stalwart in comfort and romance
long live the big white bed.

This year officially starts the Valentine Boxes for our family as EZ needed one for Preschool, but I do have to say we loved doing it and it's one thing that Matt will always help and therefore they will always look good ha! Lego Ninjago is big around the house, so that's what we went for (and they'll double as decorations for Sully's Bday what up.) They showed them off to everyone who came over and they're still showing up as a centerpiece on our table.
Valentine's brought special breakfast and candy and cool heart glasses. Matt handed WWE Valentine's out at work and it was a real good joke for us, and we laughed til we cried over some of the absurdity of our joke skills later that night.
Beginning of the year gave Matt a few days off (well, Christmas break did that I guess.) We went to Curiosity Museum (Matt's first time) and Mo's first time getting soaked on the bebe table. We baked some treats together, did some digging with Grandpa & cousins for gems, and took turns going sledding with the big boys.
Matt's birthday was this month and we also headed off to our California trip the end of this month too. Twas a good one indeed.
