Busy Valentine


Valentines Day is usually pretty simple around here, but since it landed on a 3 day weekend we extended it a bit.

It all got started with the science fair. 

Ava did great and earned herself a cute little ribbon. 

I can honestly say that I HATE science projects and I pray that next year the fair will not be mandatory. It went from 4pm-7pm on a FRIDAY night. Not cool.

 Things got better though because E took Ava to the Daddy-Daughter Dance at the church also that night. The girls love going on dates with their dad and this date is quickly becoming a favorite - next year he will have to split his time between 2 girls. Lucky guy.

They decorated cookies and danced the night away and yes, we had a very tired girl on our hands when they returned home.

I have made it a tradition to make the kids + Easy handmade valentines with a few little goodies that are laid out on the table the night before for them to check out before breakfast in the morning on V-day. Simple things - socks, a notepad, candies, and a handmade love note. It makes us all feel quite ushy-gushy inside.

That afternoon we went to the park and enjoyed what was left of our springtime in February.

And we followed the evening up with a family date to our favorite cheap Mexican restaurant.

It is a bit of a drive, but we didn't mind because the sky was magical.

My whole world right here.

On Sunday we had heart-shaped pizza and spent the day snuggled up as the snow finally came.

And with a snow-day Monday we played, and painted nails, and wrapped hair, baked cupcakes and did our shopping. This girl-mom thing is pretty awesome. It's like a nonstop slumber party sometimes.

80 little nails!

Gulp. I'm turning them into little hippies.

There was a time that I hated shopping with all 4, but these days it's cake - as long as Rosie is IN the cart. 

Also, Walmart Savings Catcher is absolute genius.
