Our little bookworm. Bella has been looking at books a lot more lately and if you listen closely she will tell a little story. Sometimes it is a story she has heard before so she will tell it pretty close to the actual story. Other times she might just make something up and it is so cute. She has a great imagination!
No that is not a lake, it is the same view from my sunrise picture a few days ago. But now all that snow has melted and we have a very flooded field across the street. The full moon is so bright and it looks beautiful reflecting off the water. This picture doesn't do it justice.
Grilling in February! It was in the upper 40's today and we are getting tried of the same of stuff for supper. So we grilled tonight and it was delicious. John also went on a hunting trip in the backyard tonight. He got himself a possum. Bella and I watched the event from the safety of the living room window....YUCK! At least that is one less possum in the world.

A gorgeous sunrise this morning. Temps are rising and hopefully soon all that snow will be melted! Spring is on its way!
Happy Valentine's Day! Bella had a little party at school today and got a few Valentines from her friends. Of course she was more excited about the candy.
Thinking of a lot of people today.
Sleeping Beauty...I think we have one of the best looking dogs out there. It may be due to all the beauty sleep he gets throughout the day and it probably doesn't hurt that it is on our big, comfy bed. Spoiled dog!

Tonight Bella's hair was sticking straight up. It made for a great picture.
My favorite snack at night. Ice cream and a glass of ice water. I have to get my calcium somehow!
Rocco was laying on the couch and it looked like he was smiling. I'm glad he laid there long enough for me to get a picture of him. Looks like he is having a sweet dream.
We started working on Bella's valentines today. She choose Disney Princess ones (of course!). We are stuffing a little bag with a few treats. She is having a little party at daycare on Monday. I don't think she quite understands what Valentine's Day is but I'm sure she will just be excited to look at all the characters on the valentines she will get.
I may be crazy but Bella and I went swimming even though it is below zero outside. I am getting cabin fever in all this cold weather. It needs to warm up soon. Bella had fun though getting out of the house and it was very warm at the pool, which felt good. How many days until summer?
Rocco is staked out underneath Bella's chair while she is eating. He wouldn't want to miss any food that she may drop.

I'm all caught up on my posting. I got a little behind this week and I only worked half a week. I'm going to try and keep up this next week. Bella is sitting in what use to be my chair when I was a little girl. My uncle is a pilot and bought it for me when he was overseas. You can't really see it, but behind Bella's head is my name written on it. Bella likes to read books in this chair and it is also our "time out" chair. I love that we still have it and that Bella gets to use it now.
Happy Birthday John! Today John turns the big 28! We celebrated by going out to eat with his dad and Malinda. It was really yummy and a good time out. Love you Johnny and hope you had a great birthday!
This is Rocco's "there is food and I want some" look. His ears go up and forward. He looks adorable when he does this so it's hard to say no. Some of his favorite human foods are licking the ice cream bowls after we are done and stealing cereal bars from Bella when she is not looking.
Bath time! I love how big and blue Bella's eyes look in this picture. It is good to have her feeling good again after being sick all last week. Another snow day today. Looks like a 2 and a 1/2 day work it!
This picture is for my Memphis friends, Amy and Belinda. Here is your belly shot. We spent the day painting in the baby's room, so I have my paint shirt on. Hard to believe that I have until June to go. Things pop out a lot quicker the second time around!
