The Lewis Edition: February Fun!

Squash and cucumber seedlings!

We've had a lot of activity at our bird feeders.

Time to make Valentines!!!

My favorite

I enjoyed making cupcakes for our piano and violin students.

Packaged and ready to be distributed!

This was "The Month of Visits from Family" for us!
We enjoyed every minute of it, and didn't want it to end!

First, we hosted Deborah, Daniel and Caitlyn.

Caitlyn was just starting to pull up on things.
Look at this girl!

Happy baby!


Next, Steven, Anna, Eva and Hudson visited for several days!

Sleepy early morning smiles ...

and yawns! :)
(Pictures taken to text to Aunt Rebekah)

Eva working on a beaded monkey

Russell and Hudson engrossed in a new book

Eva and Hudson made chocolate covered strawberries!

They did a great job!

Enjoying the fruits of their labors! ;)

On Sunday afternoon we all attended one of Russell's concerts.
(Sadly, Steven wasn't nearby when we thought to snap a picture.)

Baroque Music Concert with the Marshall Symphony

And, last but not least, we had Daddy and Mama for a few days!

Daddy and Mama at the East Texas Oil Museum.
We thoroughly enjoyed touring it!

Printing Press at the Museum

And thus ended a very enjoyable month!!!

The Lewis Edition: January

Russell and I went out for breakfast!  I had to snap a picture
since we were "matching" in blue and pink plaid flannel shirts! :)

Planning for music lessons
I started 4 new piano students this month!!

I'm teaching a few students at the church where Russell teaches.
This pretty little spot is where I teach. :)

Enjoying my new veggie tray!

Our apartment complex got a laundry room!
So convenient, as well as nice and clean!

We got SNOW!!!
About 3 inches, and it lasted several days!

School was cancelled for two days, so Russell got to stay home!
We enjoyed our cozy days together!

Cheerful lights, as well as a place to display
pictures and cards from friends!

 Russell had to be in Shreveport for several days in a row,
so I went up to hang out with this cutie and her parents!

 Can't beat that smile!

Deborah in her pretty kitchen!

I babysat for these two one morning.

They are both on the move!
Had to be on my toes to keep up with them!

Katherine and Hugh being charming

I love her Christmas dress!

Melissa read a Christmas story 

Hugh, enjoying a wind-up bug he got in his stocking

Amanda drew Thomas the Train on their gift for Hugh.

Katherine enjoyed helping everyone open their stockings and gifts.

Gag gifts are so much fun!  Here are a few of this year's.
Rebekah gave Mama Flo this dancing robot.

Amanda made Melissa some elf shoes.

Jonathan gave me a reindeer headband.  Katherine had fun modeling it!

Katherine learned how to take selfies.

Katherine got a dress-up dress and sparkly shoes...then put her Daddy's new Predators hat on to complete the outfit.  :)

The Corbetts didn't get to come for Christmas, but Eva had given Grandmama and Papa a wrapped gifts a few weeks before and told them to open it on Christmas - she wrote and illustrated a book for them.

Hugh got a veterinary set, and has enjoyed doctoring his stuffed toys.

A few days later we celebrated Christmas at Mama Flo's with the extended family.

Katherine got a doll and stroller from Mama Flo.

She was quite occupied with caring for her baby the rest of the night.

Mama Flo's gift from Uncle Phil and Aunt Judy - a new doberman!

Hugh got a ukulele and a set of rhythm instruments

Allie got a new doll...

...and a coloring book.

Hugh wanted to color, too.
