Happy Valentine's Day!

We enjoyed a nice family dinner - Martha Stewart's meatloadf 101, Pioneer Woman's Creamy Potatoes, roasted asparagus and Simply Sweets cupcakes

Valentine's Day cupcakes

Since the house looked so empty when we took down the Christmas decorations, I decorated for Valentine's Day. Now the Valentine's Day is over, can I start decorating for Easter - its one of my favorite holidays to decorate because I LOVE my egg tree. Not really into St Patrick's Day.

Going Green

I've been trying to incorporate more 'green' practices in our household. My latest has been in the kitchen switching to cloth napkins. We haven't been able to keep because we don't have enough sets to make it through the week but we're working on it. Here's a great article I found:

4 year stats

Brendan had his 4 year checkup today. He checked out fine, continuing to grow but slowing down in the weight department (his first year he was always at the top of the charts for height and weight). He got 4 shots and was very brave until the last one which hurt - so we decided a trip to Coldstone was a good idea.

height 40.75 inches, 57 percentile
weight 34 pounds, 30 percentile

We also went to Brendan's asthma doctor this week. He still has the occasional flair up of asthma where we have to add in a second medine but most days its 2 treatments of medicine a day using his machine. He's so good about it and we get to read lots of books.

First Soccer Game

Brendan's school has 4 weeks of soccer in the fall. The practice on Tuesdays and have games on Fridays. The teams are made up of 3 and 4 year olds - 4 play at a time, no goalies and they don't keep score. About half of Brendan's team just wanted to watch from the sidelines so Brendan got a lot of play time - he even scored a goal! Its very entertaining to watch - some kids like to pick up the ball and run away, at other times all the players were way off the field, and then the game stopped for awhile when the ball ended up near this huge tire (its put there for kids to play on) and everyone wanted to climb on the tire instead. But when they were focused on the game the kids did pretty well and I can see Bredan continuing with soccer as he gets older.
