15.11 lbs-  75% (for boys)
24.4 in tall

Look at these cute bugs together.  Josh is going to be the BIG brother for two sisters soon enough. 

Note the poll on the side of the blog, you can weigh in on when you think Josh will be heavier than his oldest sister (Phoebs- current weight 19.12 lbs with 2 shirts and a diaper).

Grandma's Cookie Party

Every year grandma Ferguson has a Valentine cookie party where all the kids decorate their own sugar cookies with frosting and candies. This year I was excite to participate because it was really the first year that Phoebe could understand what was going on and participate. Her favorite part of the party was eating the frosting and licking the sprinkle container. Oh well maybe next year she will get the whole decorating the cookie part.
As is always, the case the twins slept through most of the event.
At the end Josh woke up and licked a cookie or two.

V-Day Countdown

If you have been reading this blog you know that I have been trying to do many different fun things for Cory and I such as dates and this Countdown to Valentines Day, once again another idea from the Love, Actually blog. This was a fun way to have a little celebration every day. In fact when the 15th of Feb came I was a bit sad we had no more cards to pull.
Here are a few of the things we did as part of the countdown:
Heart attack a door in the house and write things we loved about each other in the hearts. I decorated the head board doors and Cory did our bedroom door (we still have these up, I don't want to take them down).
Make or buy a Valentine for each other with $1 or less. Cory made the heart card and I made the M&M card.
These pictures are two more things Cory did for me. The first one was, do something nice for each other. For his nice thing he finally (after only 3 1/2yrs) installed my hideaway drawer under the bathroom sink. For my nice thing, I cleaned all the fuzzballs off his UofU pants (not pictured). The second picture was a love note we had to write for each other. Cory used conversation hearts to write my love note (it looks a bit special now, because Phoebe got to it before I got it and licked off most of the messages or just plain ate the heart). My love note for Cory (not pictured) was written on the shower walls with shower crayons.
I loved doing everyday of this countdown and even Cory got into the spirit and came up with some really cute and creative gifts. We will definitely be doing this again next year!

V-Day in the Fergy Home

This year for Valentines because Phoebe was older we were able to do more fun activities. We made/colored valentines. Although due to the fact that they has suckers in them Phoebe could not bare to part with any, so sorry if you never received one.
We also made our traditional Valentines trail from the door to the gifts, every person has their own candy trail. There are four trails in this pic but Phoebe's was made out of M&Ms and they don't show well in this picture. Phoebe had M&Ms the twins shared a Conversation Heart trail Cory's was made out of Reese's hearts and I had a Hersey Kisses trail.
Here was what awaited everyone at the end of the trail.
Here are the twins with their trails. Cami is pictured at he the start of the trail and Josh is pictured at the end with his prize.
Phoebe was fun with the trail this year because she was thrilled to have her door opened up and see Ms on the ground. She immediately started shoving all of them into her mouth along with everyone else's candy trails. This year Phoebe received princess dress ups, she got made we could not open the box up fast enough for her. As you can see I had a hard time getting s good pic of her. This was one of the only non blurry pictures I could get.
This was awaited Cory and I at the end of our trails. I made Cory a Reese's bouquet with a $25 gift card to Braza Grill. I also dyed some snow with Phoebs and took the pic of her standing next to her message to daddy. Lastly but not least I gave Cory Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but hid this one on the fridge so it was a bonus surprise when he went to get Phoebe some milk later that morning. Before you think we spent way too much I will let you in on a little secret... our budget was only $20 and I didn't cheat, except for $2-3 dollars on shipping. Thanks for the great deals & Amazon!
Cory get me the movie Serendipity, I have always wanted that one, and tickets to a local theater called Desert Star which is a legendary dinner playhouse in Salt Lake and a must do I have never done. We will be seeing Twi-lite, a spoof on the movie Twilight. I am super excited to go.
For breakfast we enjoyed heart shaped strawberry pancakes.I made them super thick, but they still tasted great. For dinner we had spaghetti with heart shaped meatballs, but you couldn't tell the meatballs were heart shaped so they are not pictured.
On one last side note Grandma Potts sent Phoebe some stamp looking stickers in her V-day gift...this is what she chose to do with them. Little to say she possessed those stickers for a very short while.
