More Snow

Brandon, Wesley, and I had another snow day yesterday. We probably had about 8 inches of snow over night from Monday into Tuesday. Once the snow stopped we went sledding again. Brandon and Wesley would sled all day if they were able to. They really love it.

Valentine's Day 2015

Our Valentine's Day was a lot of fun yesterday. We started our day with eating red bagels from our local bagel store.

Then we went to Lowe's for their Build and Grow clinic. Brandon and Wesley made heart picture holders.
Brandon had a basketball game at 12:30. I can't believe the season is almost over. He only has two more games left.

Then last night we went to Jenkinson's Family Date Night at the boardwalk. It was a great deal. A family of four was $39.99. For that price you got admission for 4 to the aquarium, a large pizza and pitcher of soda, a $10 playcard for the arcade, and a treat (4 chocolate covered strawberries) from the sweet shop. The aquarium had the kids there make Valentine's for the animals. They taped them up on the tank of the animal that they made it for when they were finished. They also had a heart shaped fish project for the kids to make.

Jersey Day

Wesley had jersey day at his school the Friday before the Super Bowl.

Snow Day Baking

Brandon, Wesley, and I all had the day off of school a few days ago because of snow. I had bought cookie dough mix to make cookies so I took it out. Brandon and Wesley had so much fun making cookies with it. The cookie dough mix is the consistency of play dough and the kids can shape it into cookies.


We went to Kidabaloo today at Brookdale Community College. It was raising money for the children's hospital at Monmouth Medical Center (where I had both kids). There was a lot to do there. There were characters, a video game truck, bounce houses, art projects, a wheel to spin to get a prize, cupcake making that looked like mini hamburgers, balloon animals, and face painting. There was also a special visit from the actress who plays Emma on the show Jessie which is on Disney.

Basketball Team Picture

Brandon is having so much fun playing basketball. He has two fantastic coaches and a great group of kids on his team. He is learning so much each week and really has improved a lot from his first game 5 weeks ago.

Home Depot Kids Workshop

Yesterday morning we went to Home Depot for the kids workshop. The second Tuesday of every month they have a kids workshop. It is free and the kids get to make something and keep it. They also get an apron at the first workshop they go to. They get a pin for their apron at the end of each workshop and a certificate. Brandon and Wesley made a heart box yesterday. First they had to put the pieces together and nail. Then they got to paint it. Both boys had a lot of fun making it. We will definitely go back next month for the next kids workshop.
