Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  So far it has been a great day.  Last night I set up my kitchen table with heart stuff so when the kids woke up they would be surprised.  Jess and Gary are the first round of breakfast eaters and they were happy.  We got Gary a pillow pet and Jess some I tunes gift cards.  I know they arnt traditional V-day gifts but we would rather get the kids stuff we know they will love and get good use of. 
So the big kids then left for school and the second round woke up.  Emma was super happy with her Jessie doll from Toy Story.  She has been wanting one for awhile now. 

 Breakfast was doughnuts (daddy brang some home this morning when he got off work) and fruit smoothies!
 Then it was balloon time!  I couldn't believe how much fun they had with these dollar tree balloons I picked up!

 Next was craft time.  We made a heart craft and decorated Valentines bags for the cards they got for each other.  I think they really enjoyed that. My sister brought  Mira over,, it worked out great that way cause the extra set of hands here came in handy helping me with the glue, markers, and all that messy stuff.

 For lunch we had peanut butter and jelly heart shaped sandwiches and green beans and applesauce(not shown),, then valentines cookies and cupcakes!

Not to smart of me to get them all sugared up before naptime. LOL.   They are all sleeping now and whew, Im worn out.  I think this cold is wearing me down.   Every minute is worth it though if the kids are having fun.  Tonight for dinner we are having steak, baked potatoes and corn.  Were gonna attempt to grill the steaks outside cause its a little warmer and the snow melted off the grill. :)  Ben has to go to work tonight so no alone time for us, but at least we still get to spend some time together on this special day of love!
