Love Sack and Chicken Hips

We have had our love sack for about three years, and have never gotten it stuffed. Well, for our Valentine's Day, we got our love sack filled. The girls love it! It is the new favorite toy that they jump on, wrestle on, and get thrown on. We were very excited today.
We made Valentine cookies yesterday. Daddy got the big one, and we made little ones for everyone else. I made it the whole time without snitching the icing or the cookie was no fun, but should be done once to let yourself know you have the willpower.

I was tickling Rachel's back the other day, and she said, "Stop Mom! You're giving me chicken hips!" I said, "Rachel, what are chicken hips?" She showed me her arm, and said, "Look, chicken hips!" I laughed and said, "Rachel, those are called goose bumps!" I still have no idea where she got the word chicken hips.
