Happy Day of Love!

It feels like it's been forever since I've been on here. I have had the busiest 2 weeks! Kate is crawling AND she cut her first tooth! She continues to amaze me so much by what she can do everyday! Abby has had a busy 2 weeks too. We had a mommy and Abby night. We went and ate dinner at our favorite mexican resturant, Juans, and then we went and saw the Lippinzan horses. We had such a good time! It was a lot of fun just for the 2 of us to go out and have fun. We have decided to keep the puppy, Rebel. He is just too sweet and he keeps Dixie company. Dixie has not been digging holes anymore and we think that is due to the fact that she is too busy keeping up with Rebel and trying to hide her bones from him! ha
Abby had the 100th day of school the other day. It was a lot of fun to get ready for.
Valentines Day was a lot of fun too. Mom and dad came and got the girls Friday night. I made dinner, Pioneer Womans "meal of love" roasted garlic mashed potatoes, pan fried steak, and chocolate pie. It was all delish! Last year Michael and I started staying at home and eating dinner and then going to see a movie. I can't imagine life without our girls, but it is really nice to just sit, the 2 of us, and eat dinner at HOME. We went and saw Taken. If you want a good movie to see, this is the one to see. I drank to much coke and I had to use the restroom, but I didn't get up because I KNEW that I would miss something. It is soooo action packed! We had a wonderful evening. I am reminded, on this day of love, why it is that I love Michael so much. He is such a wonderful husband and father. He loves me and the girls so much. I am such a lucky girl and I know it!
For Valentines Day we thought we would take the girls out on a date. I thought we could go to Chick-Fil-A and have dinner, I thought "how crowded could it be on Valentine's Day?" ha ha ha ha!!!! They were having a candlelight dinner night there. It was VERY crowded, but it was a nice atmosphere. After dinner we were going to take Abby to the mall to go Glo-Golfing. Well...we get there and it was closed down. Abby had just been there 2 weeks ago! She was a little disappointed, but got over it when we told her we would go bowling next week!
I am very lucky to have such a wonderful family! I hope that everyone else had a good day as well!
Here we are at the horse show! We had a lot of fun!

I had to throw in just a couple of pictures of the horses we saw. They were BEAUTIFUL and so well trained!!!

He is JUMPING!!! Abby loved this!

We saw Abby's best friend, Kate, from school.

What a poser!

OK...I found Dixie looking like this after Abby had gotten ahold of her!

Here is Abby on the 100th day of school. We made a 100th day t-shirt. I wrote 100 on it and she painted 100 dots on there while we counted outloud to 100. She is holding 100 kisses to share with her classmates.

Abby and Rebel...yes...I think we are keeping him...

Miss Kater-poo

Here is my little Valenine!

Michael and I got her Madagascar 2 for Valentine's Day. I guess you could say that she liked the gift!

Here is Kate eating her first Valentine's card she got in the mail from Grandma "Linker" Lankford.

She is opeing her present, but she looks very confused!

Miss Abby...she has this goofy smile when she smiles for the camera now! I tell her all the time to just smile!
Here is Kate with her "camera" that she got for Valentine's Day.

And finally...sisters...aren't they cute?
