Jack's basketball games

Jack is playing basketball at the YMCA, we watch his games on Saturday mornings. It was priceless last Saturday to see the excitement on his face when he made a basket, I loved the way he looked over to make sure I saw it.
Taking it down the court..
He made this shot!

A little advice from coach..

Valentine's Day and Birthday

Happy Valentine's Day and my birthday! This year, Chris hired a sitter the Saturday before and we spent the day downtown shopping, eating lunch and ending with a great movie. It was perfect. For Valentine's Day, Chris and the kids made dinner for me at home which was very nice. I took no part in this especially in the clean up which was awesome.
Claire really got into making her valentine cards for preschool. She put stickers on all the cards, signed her name and carefully placed the pencil(Toy Story theme of course). She
is currently going through a polka dot obsession and wants to wear them daily!

The older two worked diligently on their valentine cards and boxes as well.

Claire on her third Valentine's Day! She is getting so big!

Chris made my absolutely favorite meal, Steak Au Poivre. It's a filet seared in butter, broiled and served with a green peppercorn cream sauce and cognac reduction-YUM. This is from one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Beaufort, Emily's. It was dead on and delicious! Check out the fancy paper towel place setting that Jack did when he set the table.

The kids were responsible for dessert, cupcakes with pink icing and ice cream! They
were very proud!

Me on my 38th bday 35 weeks prego with a huge tummy and double chin! I'm getting a little slow and lazy these days... Claire took this picture by the way

Virginia weekend

We decided to take a last minute trip before baby #4 makes his debut! We drove up to Virginia and Chris took the kids tubing/skiing at Wintergreen. We also got to visit family who live nearby. Thanks Jay and Amy for a great visit! It was such a great weekend.
Waiting to tube, Claire and I went just to watch and take pictures. Claire was promised ski school next winter when we take our next trip!
Chris and Caroline went tubing one day and skiied the next while Jack chose to tube two days in a row. The second day he went with his cousin Finn.

There they go...

Caroline is big enough to use my skis, boots, pants, poles and jacket! Crazy how big she is getting!

Jack and Finn had a great time hanging out together.

Claire and Virginia had not seen each other in over a year!

Caroline did a great job, check her out skiing a green slope!

Basketball season is upon us, Caroline is having a blast playing on the Riverview team this year. Go Stingrays!
We are having the best time going to the games. I love to watch basketball, I'm hopeful that atleast one of my kids will play in high school.

Extreme Home Makeover made a stop in Beaufort.

We had to check it out, pretty cool. I can't wait to watch the episode in March.

Watch this shot!
