The month began with a surprise birthday visit from my parents! Our visits always seem to go by too fast... but we had so much fun. Dan surprised me with tickets the US Figure Skating Championships the last night they were here!!! Our tickets were for the very last row... but we still had a great view and didn't have to worry about anyone sitting behind us spilling beer down our backs.
The picture above is Dan drinking some rum out of his flask. He said he wouldn't be able to make it through the night without some help... but I know he secretly enjoyed the skating. It was so fun being able to see the skaters that will be competing in the Olympics.
Another exciting part of the month was hearing our baby's heartbeat for the 2nd time. We'll have our 1st ultrasound at the end of next month... but we've decided not to find out what we're having. It still seems so unreal to us.
Dan is still super busy with school, but is enjoying his job much more this semester. He comes home with the most hilarious stories... but this one tops my list. He lets students eat lunch in his classroom most days. Last week some students were trying to get Dan to do the "Step Snap" dance which comes from Atlanta (see DL4, Laffy Taffy for an example of the sound and the dance). The great part is... he tried it with varied success. His students were laughing pretty hard... I only wish I could have seen it! Lets just say our household music selection has changed to include much more hip hop.
I hope all is well with everyone! We'll be in Chico at the end of March... so hopefully we'll get to see some of you!
