Last Day of Basketball 2017

Wednesday was the last day of the basketball season for James. James told Kevin, "Now I have a trophy just like you!" He was referencing the trophy Kevin purchased for himself after he won Fantasy Football in 2012. Haha.

Valentine's Day 2017

I'm not a "Pinterest mom" but I saw some people decorating their kids' doors, and it seemed simple enough. It was actually fun to do James's door because he's old enough that I could write funny notes and inside jokes on his hearts. I stuck to doing drawings on Miranda's hearts.

James's valentine to Miranda!

James had a lot of fun collecting Valentines at school, and shared his ring pops (from the bus driver) with Miranda.

Ring pop joy!

James liked his door decorations so much that he decided to decorate the door for me and Kevin with things we might like. Miranda helped too- note the two things taped low on the door.

James's Kindergarten Valentine's Party 2017

On Monday, I got to visit James's classroom along with some other moms to help the kids make two Valentine's Day crafts. It was great messy fun. I love how happy James is when we go to his classroom.

Patriots Win Their 5th Super Bowl! 2017

We enjoyed the Super Bowl this year. By half-time, it looked like the Patriots were definitely going to lose. And then everything magically turned around!
