Valentines Day

We had a nice Valentines Day. Jacob had school and took his valentines that he worked hard on this week. He cut hearts out of construction paper (pink and red for the girls & blue and green for the boys), taped on a candy and put stickers on them. I wrote who they were to and he wrote his name on each one. He enjoyed making them and when he got home he told us that his friends loved them.
We then decided to try to go out to dinner with the five of us. Our first attempt at a dinner out as a family of 5. We went to Red Robin and it was pretty successful. We were mostly worried about Micah being in his "fussy time", but he did good and was pretty distracted by all that was going on there. They had someone in a costume dressed up as a Robin. You'd think that would've been fun for the kids, but Abbey is terrified of anyone in costume, so she buried her head into Jim the whole dinner and wouldn't take a bite of food. She would occasionally peek out and if she saw the robin she would pull Jim's face down so she could be completely protected. We felt bad for her (we wouldn't have gone there if we knew they' d have that). Anyways, it was nice to get out of the house and be waited on and overall a pretty relaxing night for us :)

Hey, I hear there is a pretty sweet restaurant in Bedford that you should check out. I think it is called The Coffee Cup. Great food with a great staff! That's just the word on the street. :)

Amanda and I were out last night for coffee and she finally got a chance to check up on your blog. Not having a computer at home means her not getting to check in on you as often as she would like. Glad to hear things are going well with Micah.
