Jeremy and Makayla went on a date last night:) We love taking the kids on dates. The kids are always asking when it's their turn to go out on a date. I guess they don't come frequent enough for them.

Makayla's been taking piano for maybe four months now. There was a day a few months ago that Makayla wasn't wanting to practice and Jeremy happened to be home. So he brought Makayla to the computer and showed her some clips of Jerry Lee Lewis jamming on the piano. He told her how important it is to practice and maybe one day she'd be able to play like Jerry Lee Lewis.

Makayla has been infatuated with him ever since.

A few weeks ago Jeremy saw a billboard for the Choctaw Casino in OK featuring Jerry Lee Lewis. So of course he bought tickets and him and Makayla went last night to go see him perform.

He's in his late seventies (?) A little older now but still a lot of fun.

Happy Valentines

Jeremy and I went to The Glass Cactus to see Steal Magnolia perform. We love a few of their songs and watched and cheered for them when they were on Can You Duet. Steal Magnolia was nominated at the CMA and at the AMC awards show. In fact, you can vote for them at (or something like that) Jeremy and I were surprised by how few people were there.

We decided that we need to get out and do stuff like this a lot more. It was a lot of fun.

Today's Jackson's Birthday

makayla helped me make jackson's cake today. we're going to go to chic-fil-a for jackson's birthday dinner. his birthday is all hockey. saturday we're going to a hockey game, but tonight we're doing cake, ice cream, and gifts. i took him to the star's hockey gift shop to spend some money grandma schultz sent. he got another hockey stick and a real puck. when we got home we found more money from grammy so we'll have to go back tomorrow, so he can get a jersey or something.

the guest room is finally painted

With all the snow we've gotten, Jeremy couldn't handle being stuck at home with nothing to do, so I put him to work. It's so great to have a few of the things on my list crossed off. The kids always want to help. It makes painting hard with kids hanging around. It has gotten better now that they're older. I was always such a disaster when they were little.

So for family and friends who aren't in Dallas, you may not know that we have been snowed in since Tuesday. School was cancelled Tues-Fri. and Saturday Stake Conference was just cancelled. The Super Bowl is here in Dallas. Snow snow and ice has cause some problems with super bowl stuff.

It's been nice having Jeremy home so much lately. We painted our guest room finally and have it all set up. Today we finally got out and went to the gym and played for a while.

The kids have watched a lot of T.V. and played the Wii and have been on the computer way too much. It was nice to get out and play. The snow is supposed to melt today and tomorrow, but then it's supposed to snow again Tues!
