February was a pretty great month! The first half of it was consumed by prepping for and celebrating Sharli's 4th birthday. She decided she wanted a rainbow birthday this year, and we went all out. Rainbow playdough, rainbow snacks, rainbow decorations, rainbow cake, rainbow coloring pages, and 40 pound of rainbow rice. SO much rainbow! I tried to have everything set up so that the moms could turn the kids loose to play, then sit and enjoy some mom chatter while the kids played. It mostly worked. :)

|But look how much fun!!!|
Clearly I've lost my mind, because I also made a billion rainbow sugar cookies. Which the kids decided they didn't like. BUT I liked them, and may have eaten way too many... so still a win?
Also in February was Chinese New Year, so we headed over to Phoenix to a big multi-day festival to celebrate that. It was fun, but might have been a bit more exciting if we'd picked a time other than first thing Sunday morning to attend. Oh well.
