Well, hello there, blogosphere! How've you been? For quite some time, I was trying desperately to catch up with backdated posts but never could quite get to the present. So I still want to fill in those missing months, but I think I'll also press on with the present so this doesn't become a permanent problem.
We've had fun celebrating Valentine's Day this week. Kids make this holiday so much more fun! I put the kids in their festive shirts several times over the last few weeks to get some wear out of them. And how could you ever get enough of this cuteness? This particular day, they insisted on multiple pictures so they'd each have a turn to be in the middle. Weirdos.
Jake & Mallory worked hard making valentines for each of their classmates...
And Mommy worked hard on some cookies to share with them. Actually, I was a bit lazy on these, which is why the icing is just zigzagged on there. Let's just call it a whimsical design & pretend it was my original intent. :)
Valentine's breakfast - love those sleepy eyes!
Heading to school
Jake & Mal got heart-shaped sandwiches in their lunchboxes while Beau had his own festive lunch at home with Mommy.
Class party time! The kids had a sprinkle buffet to decorate their cupcakes, exchanged valentines & made some fun crafts. I'm so glad I get to have these fun days with them!
Me & my sweeties
Daddy's plane didn't land until late last night, but the kids & I continued the fun with movie time instead of a nap, spaghetti & meatballs for dinner & sugar cookies for dessert. It was such a fun day - I love LOVE!
