We have had a fabulous February, weather-wise. The last time I remember February being this mild was when we had the 2010 Olympics, but it was pointed out to me by my friend that this year is warmer. There isn't any snow on the local mountains. At least in 2010, there was snow on the mountains. This year, none.

Sweet Pea was 11 months old on the 20th of February. She is one of the happiest and smiliest babies that I know. She weighs 21 pounds 6 ounces and is 29 and 1/4 inches long. I think she is long and lean, and of all of our four grandchildren who have reached this age, she is the smallest. She fits 12 month size clothes, but some of them are too short in the arms or legs. Her mommy has requested 18 month size for her birthday, as she will be into them before we know it.

Baby went for her 6 month shot today (yes, we know she is almost 8 months old) and she weighs exactly 20 pounds and is 27 and 1/2 inches long. This puts her at 85th percentile for weight and 50th percentile for height. She fits 12 month clothing now, and I still think that she is little. No, I know that she really isn't, but I still think she is. She is definitely #3's littlest.

It was another beautiful day! Grandson and Sweetheart slept over as Sweetheart has been asking for a few weeks to stay. Grandson joined her and they were perfect little houseguests. Sweetheart and I went to church this morning as Grandson had a hockey jamboree at the Coliseum this afternoon and he had to leave by 11. Hubby and I took Sweetheart and we joined them for a little later. Grandson scored two goals and it was very fun! The Giants organization does an excellent job of hosting.........There are bouncy castles and slides, Tim Horton treats, facepainting and balloon art. Grandson had a great time exploring the zamboni and he loved pretending to drive it.

It was another sunny day today and a couple of miracles phoned to ask if they could meet here this afternoon. Sure, no problem. The girls and I went for a walk, and the boys played some street hockey.

The weather has been so lovely this month. Yes, we have had rain. But we have had a lot of sunshine too. Makes it so nice to get outside and enjoy our local playgrounds.
We had our snack at the playground yesterday. Stopped on our way home from Music class, and it was lots of fun!
We went for a walk on the dike this morning. Again, it was so warm, and the children really enjoyed their time there.

We had a "love"ly Valentines Day. We started out at the chiropractor where I got adjusted and Hubby didn't need to be this month. Went home to let the repairman in, as we have been having issues with our fridge.....it turns out that it needs a new part that he had to order, so it will be fixed when the part comes in.
Hubby took me out to the White Spot for a late breakfast, we did a couple of errands and then I went to the ophthalmologist. I needed dilation drops and that was at 1:30 pm.....they are just wearing off enough now so that I can actually see clearly. My pressures were 18 for my right eye and 17 for the left, so that was good. Not as good as they have been at previous visits but still fine. Hubby and I went to Toys R Us as I have a four year old birthday party to attend tomorrow. It was Hockey Day in Canada today so there were free hockey cards to be picked up too.....so the visit to the toy store was twofold. We also stopped at Mostly Music as they were also giving out free hockey cards. All the stores have different ones that they give out so because it was on our way home, we stopped. It doesn't really take much to make a grown man happy on Hockey Day in Canada. At least, my grown man, anyway. Made a quick trip into Langley to get more free hockey cards at Wisers and then we went to Wah Wing for an early dinner.....it was soooooo delicious! We got there before the crowds as it was pretty busy when we were leaving. I just love Szechuan beans!
Our evening was quiet. We watched a bit of the CalgaryVancouver game (Vancouver lost 3-2) and I did some laundry. I can't believe how tired I am, but I think that it is partly because of my eyes being so light sensitive. Time for me to get some sleep.....Good night!

We went to a wedding reception last night. It was for a co-worker of Hubby's and it was very fun. This couple actually got married on a cruise in the Caribbean in January, so their nautical theme and colours were very fitting. And because of their Italian/Portuguese ethnicity, no expense was spared. I haven't been to this kind of bash for a long time (like more than 30 years ago, I am sure) and we were extremely well fed. Lots of hot and cold appetizers....my personal favourite was the coconut shrimp, but the quiche and seafood tarts were pretty good too! The meal started out with an antipasto dish of melon, raw veggies and prosciutto, then there was the pasta which was probably the best cannelloni I have ever had, and then we had roast beef dinners with garlic prawns, buns and green salad. Dessert was wedding cake and fresh fruit, and there was also a candy bar. I really didn't think I would ever eat again as I was so stuffed. And we left before the midnight buffet was served......so there was more food coming!
