We have had a full February so far, which is good because it makes these cold months go by quicker! We were lucky to have Grandmother Alta come visit us. Peyton loves to play with GG and was so happy she came to visit! She brought him a puzzle of Thomas the Train and they put it together over 100 times. They'd barely have it put together and he'd be asking to do it again! He was sad when she had to go home but so happy she came to visit!

These pictures are just too precious. He loves his GG!:)
We got another big snow storm last weekend and Peyton was so excited when Dad said he'd go build a snowman with him. He loves to sing, "Once there was a snowman..." and so they headed out to get building. We gave it a good shot but the snow was to soft and powdery, it wouldn't stick together. So instead of a snowman we got a bucket and did the next best thing, built a snow tower. Peyton was plenty happy with that because he always loves a tower!
I sure love my two snowmen! Peyton likes wearing his snowsuit and he calls it his "snowman suit."
Here is the completed snow tower. Peyton was pretty impressed that it was taller than him!
I got a new phone and Peyton and I have been having fun taking lots of pictures of ourselves on it. Peyton loves it cause he can see himself on the screen when we take the picture. I just love this little man!
This past weekend we enjoyed a very nice Valentine's Day. Shaye and I got to go out on a nice date with our friends Kenzie and Zac. It has become our tradition to go out with them on Valentine's. This is our 3rd year in a row so we'll have to keep that tradition going! We had a great time enjoying dinner and then ice cream and of course lots of fun visiting and catching up.
Peyton LOVED Valentine's Day this year. It is so fun as he is getting older that he gets excited about stuff. He loved saying happy Valentine's Day and he was especially excited that he got a little present. He was so excited to open it and see what was inside.
He got some gloves to keep his hands warm playing in the snow.
And he loved this little froggy cup with a straw. He couldn't have been happier!
Me and my special little Valentine!
Mikkel put on a little Valentine's party for this super cute group of boys. It was so fun to watch them play and give each other their little valentines. They all were so darn cute in their Valentine's shirts. Cutest group of boys I've ever seen!
Here they are putting the finishing touches on their Monster Valentine's boxes.
Pretty darn cute aren't they?!
Peyton and Emmitt enjoying their suckers.
Peyton created a new toy this week. He was so excited to show me his new slide! He thought it was the greatest!
And the best part was it also doubled as a tunnel. He was pretty excited about it:)
Saturday we went on a fun family outing and went up to Panguitch Lake and went ice fishing. It was a beautiful day and couldn't have turned out better! For Shaye's birthday we got him a ice fishing tent and it turned out to be great! It was so warm inside and it was fun to see the fish and even catch a few!
Jennica came with us and we also met Shaye's Dad and Kelly up there and they brought some of the other grandkids. So Peyton had some friends to play with.
Peyton warmed up to Trey and quickly started following him around everywhere.
Sharing snacks with his friends.
Here are the pictures of all fish we caught. That is Peyton's favorite part he loves when dad catches a fish and he gets so excited!
And for the grand finale Shaye caught this big guy! It was pretty exciting and fun. What a great day with the family!! Love day's like this:)
