Valentines Day 2011

Over the weekend both Ty and I were sick. Ty has a horrible head cold and I had the stomach flu. As miserable as I was, I'm glad it was just a 24 hour thing. Ty is still feeling pretty bad. Poor guy.

On Friday, the kids had their class Valentine parties. Madi and Owen both made their boxes to put their Valentines in. They each covered a shoe box with red wrapping paper and then glued pink, white and red hearts on it. They turned out really cute. Jacob made his in class. His teacher cut out construction paper in the shape of a heart and on that he glued colored hearts on it. Cute cute!

So as always, I was running back and forth between each party helping out. It was fun and a little exhausting. They all received a lot of fun treats. I'm glad they all had a fun party day! :)

This morning I surprised the kids with fun treats. They each received their box of chocolate. Along with that, Madi got a new pillow for her bed, Jacob got the Bumblebee Pillow Pet and Owen got the Penguin Pillow Pet. They were pretty hAPpy!

This evening we enjoyed a heart shaped pizza, bread sticks, salad and a heart shaped brownie. We dimmed the lights, lite some candles and listened to love songs. Super cheesy, but it's our tradition and we look forward to it every year. :)

February came and went pretty fast. It makes me glad because it just means Spring is around the corner. March is when I begin to think about which flowers I want to plant in the garden and IF I should paint our front door. This March is an extra special month because it's Jacob's 8th Birthday. He is so excited to be baptized and we are SO proud of our little man. :)
