We went down to Fargo and we had a little get together with John's family! It was tons of fun.....It's really fun to watch Ingrid with Little N. She's such a gentle spirit (a little mother) who was able to get him out of his shell and play with her. Reagan was hilarious...I had my camera out and she said....Take a PICTURE....so of course I did!! I love my nieces and nephews!! They just make me smile! :-)

Clint thought of the best gift for Little N. (We had gone over to Clint's house the other day and to get Little N to approach him he used a tape measurer. Well Little N was so intrigued by this tape measurer that he would go up to Clint and hang out with him.) Well we were at dinner at someone's house and Clint had a present for Little N.....you guessed it a Tape Measurer. Little N was in heaven because he got to have a little tape measure all his own and could play with it all he wanted to. What a cool gift.

We went to another basketball game!! It was probably the cutest half time show ever. A bunch of little girls all doing a little dance routine based off a Hannah Montana song!! It was adorable!!

Little N tried to eat apples with peanut butter! It was so yummy and delicious. Little N loved that he could eat the apples with the peanut butter all by himself!! (He didn't enjoy the clean up quite as much though!)

At Zion we had a Valentines Potluck. Everyone made a dish and then we got together at Zion to eat and play games. We had a heart filled with candy that the kids tried to break apart. Then we played 4 on a pew (Four on a Couch) (Please tell me you have heard this....no one at Zion had ever heard of this game.....we had so much fun playing....it was a game that a 1st grader all the way to adults!!) Little N so badly wanted to switch papers with people so John gave him a name and he went around trying to trade papers with people. Sadly the boys won two rounds. We call for a rematch!!

We had made the right choice of driving the night before because the whole state of ND had closed roads and travel advisers all over the place the whole time we were in Minot for the Pastor's and Wives Retreat. (I know that I wrote weekend but for a Pastor sometimes Monday through Wednesday can feel like a weekend especially we were on a retreat!) We had Joel and Barb as our speakers for the weekend and it was just a refreshing time. Got to hang out at the pool, listen to Joel and Barb, play games, talk to other pastors and wives. Also got to see Tractors and Farm equipment inside the mall. (I love the fact that the mall is connected to the hotel so we could walk to the food court and eat and walk around the mall.) Little N loved the fact that there was a little play area with a slide that he could go down and climb up all by himself. (He figured out that it was easier to go down the slide backwards.) All in all it was a great weekend.

Monday was the start of the Western District Pastor & Wives Retreat. But we were supposed to have a horrible storm. So John woke me up Sunday morning telling me that our Valentines present was staying over on Sunday night. (That was fine with me!) We drove to Minot in pretty decent weather. We were treated to a wonderful meal of lasanga and great fellowship when we arrived to Minot. Then Little N got to go swimming. It was a fun day! :-) (That night we wondered the whole night if we had made the right choice of going to Minot a day early!! It looked like we had made the wrong decision!)

Little N has loved eating his grandma's pancakes!! Sadly this is some of the last pancakes of her he'll have in a while!! We are going back to North Dakota. Maybe the next time we'll have them is if she comes out to visit or hopefully this summer! :-) Thank you grandma for the yummy pancakes.

Little N and I were invited to a friend's house to watch the Superbowl. (Actually I basically just went to hang out with friends and watch the commericals.) Little N had three other friends there too. He was a little shy and clingy in the beginning but after a while warmed up to people. We left after half time and I forgot my camera at their house. THANKFULLY I have friends who know my need for having my camera and brought it home with them and I think I picked it up the next day! PHEW!! :-) Thanks Vicky and Dave for hosting the Superbowl party. Also THANKS everyone for the yummy delicious food!! :-) Yummy!!!
We went to Outback Steak house with Tante Barbara and Grandma. Yummy....the food was awesome!! Got to have some bloomin' onion, steak, mashed potatoes and green beans!! Talk about yummy food!! Little N decided that all he wanted to eat was the yummy brown bread!!! :-) I love the picture of Little N and I!! It's so cute!
