Valentine’s party.

Last week, my darling and generous friend Amy hosted a Valentine’s Day party at her home complete with amazing crafts and games. I was lucky enough to have myself and my girls invited! Lydia kinda adores all of these kiddos at this party. And I adore them all too. We are lucky to have such great friends close by to have these kind of get togethers with. photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_8_zps82214b80.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_9_zpsc4c7346e.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_10_zps1997e7fd.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_11_zpsbb26a97c.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_12_zpsf6dd5740.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_14_zps5817063d.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_15_zps9cdf6814.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_16_zpsad1c8401.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_17_zpsd14180bb.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_19_zpsa418fbb9.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_20_zps3f20ad7f.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_21_zps3abb2e14.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_23_zps52206353.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_24_zps62ec15fc.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_25_zps2fe585c5.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_26_zpsd239e000.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_27_zpsab66a91b.jpg photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_28_zps257da32c.jpg

A look at the Valentine’s exchange.  Lydia and Hazel sure lucked out with the most adorable Valentine’s! photo Feb14_KaraSimmons_29_zpsb151e57f.jpgI can’t thank Amy and the rest of my friends enough for the fun(and LOVE) filled afternoon.  Us Simmons girls had a blast.

Thueson baby shower.

I think this baby shower might have been a month or so ago, since Tara’s little Dash is two weeks old now! And he is the cutest little guy. Trust me.
The baby shower was adorable and so much fun. That dip that has sprinkles on it is dangerous.  Rachel and Lisa, you guys did an awesome job.  There were a lot of ladies there, and sorry I didn’t get a pic of everyone.  And, yes Tara always looks that good pregnant.  Darn her. 🙂

Girls trip.

A couple of weeks ago my very generous friend Angie offered to have a girls’ trip down to St. George in her families house. It was a quick trip but a lot of fun. Lydia loved playing with so many cute girls. One highlight of the trip for me was driving Tara’s brand new mini van back from St. George packed with children and luggage to the brim!
