|beautiful day in February! time to bike!|

|Reilly made a snow heart!|
we then did a family art night!
|Reilly and Victoria were partnered together|
|Dan and Gerri were partners|
|Danny and I were partners!|
|this is Danny and my creation :)|
Then it was Reilly's first birthday with us!!
|pretty cake! she was shocked!|
|we rented a space at Wegman's and she did not know what to do with all the attention!|
|she opened up gift after gift and did not know what to do :)|
Being the center of attention was very hard, but she did great :)
|got a mani/pedi for her birthday :) she LOVED it!|
|doing school work, yeh, that's it!|
|small birthday party just us at home :)|
she loved it! :)
Then it was February school vacation and we unexpectedly had surgery for Gerri's left leg.
She had been complaining about leg pain and we thought there was a bone cyst.
We got a call on Wednesday before vacation that we could come in the following week for a quick surgery. then on the Friday before vacation they called to say that surgery slots had opened up because of the flu and we could (if we wanted) have Gerri;s big surgery done! (we had been waiting two years for a surgery slot) I said yes then had to run around and get stuff done asap so we could head out. thankfully the orthodontist fit her in to have her palate expander removed. then I ran to her school to let them know what was going on so they could plan for once she got back since we knew it would be in a wheelchair. Gerri was only told that she was having the quick surgery for the cyst.
|car ride down :)|
|so very thankful for ronald mcdonald house!|
|waiting on the silly juice!|
|silly juice on board! dr vb gave her the marking pen once he was done :)|
