January/February work and fun

Not too much has been going on these wintery warm months, 
so I thought I would give a review of January and February in one post again :D

We worked on a couple of projects - not the least of which
was an addition on the barn!

Mostly finished!

Putting in a new backsplash

The boys traveled all the way to TN for the green quad!

Reorganizing room A

Melody wanted to learn how to change her oil!

Working on the engine of Joseph's new truck

Getting the sleds ready for the boys' trip

Trying to fix our old crockpot :D

We had a Wild Tea Party with Grandma M. again this year;
as always, we have more pictures of the food than of the people!

Compliments of Mary, Julia, and Rebecca ;)

Grandma's famous turtles on the bottom...

Ahh.....THIS CAKE!!! Basically death by chocolate :D

Our trip to Mark and Grace's to see Sierra!!

The night of the Palazzolo wedding, Mark texted and said that Grace's water broke!
The kids that were at the wedding headed home as soon as they could, and got home around 3 a.m.
We hurried to get packed the next morning, and the whole family left around 11. Just before we left, Mark told us that "Baby Cox" had arrived at 9:36 a.m.! We were super hyped to leave then :D
We told him not to let us know if it was a boy or a girl!!
After 8 hours of driving and a stop or two, we got to Mark and Grace's house around 8 p.m.
We all closed our eyes and held on to each other as Mark led us into their room. Once we opened our eyes, the baby lying in Grace's arms was wearing a pink dress! It was a girl!

It's ok!
