Over the last 3 days the weather here in Texas has been nice. It has been in the high 70's or even the high 80's. Melissa and I took time to out of our day to enjoy the weather. One day we went for a walk and feed the ducks and the other days we spent at our favorite park. This park is a huge wood playground. It's great for little ones and the big kids. Melissa loves to run around and explore. She does spend most of her time in the swings. We are ready for spring and summer to get here so we can spend more time outside.

Melissa received a present yesterday via UPS. It was cookie mix from Axcan Pharma. This is the company that gives Melissa free enzymes and vitamins. I was very shocked when I opened the package up. The note on the card read
Happy Valentine's Day from your friends at Axcan Pharma
Bake some cookies, mix up some fun, and enjoy a sweet treat this Valentine's Day!
We hope you enjoy baking these heart-shaped cookies and gaining a few extra calories as well. (Does that mean mommy also)
We are proud to support your health and nutrition.
Today Melissa and I made heart-shaped cookies. She still doesn't understand making cookies, but she has fun trying to eat the cookie dough.

Today we received a package in the mail from Florida! My Aunt and Uncle sent us fresh oranges from their tree! They also sent Melissa some video's! That was a special treat to have fresh oranges for an afternoon snack!

On Tuesday Melissa and I went over to our friends Kaelyn and Lena's. It had been about 4 months since the girls had seen each other. It took Kaelyn a while to warm up to Melissa. We had some battles over blankets, but they are still friends. After the girls played awhile and Lena and I talked we head out to eat for lunch. We took the girls to Chick Fil a. Melissa loves their chicken nuggets.

Yesterday I attended my friends baby shower. Amy and her husband moved to Paris, they are missionaries over there. Amy & Chad are expecting their 1st child in March. Amy's Church family wanted to have a baby shower for them. How do you have a shower for the mother if she isn't here? Thanks to the advance technology we had it via Skype. Amy could see and hear everything. It was neat to be able to talk to her. Each person opened their own gift in front of the TV/laptop so Amy could see the gifts. It was a lot of fun!
