We had a great Valentines Day. It was a busy Valentine’s Day. Mommy was really tired come mid-afternoon which didn’t leave a whole lot of love for my main squeeze. I always thought this love holiday was about that man I love, but since the kids have been in school I have learned it has been mostly about them.
To Jonathan: Next year I pledge to make it more about YOU!!
Here is a peak at what kept us so busy.
I wanted to show you how cute the treat ended up for Isaac’s Valentine. You can read about those here.
I think they are just so much fun, and perfect for 4 year olds.
We made these delicious cookies for their teachers. I will share the recipe soon.
I started the morning by putting together a big Love lunch together for all the teachers at the kids school; Lasagna, homemade bread, salad and desserts. It was a lot of work, but our teachers are worth it. I also have lots of great helpers.
After I got them all started, it was time to visit Isaac’s class for his party.
Thankfully it wasn’t my turn to plan this party. I just got to sit and enjoy it with him.
He is the cutest preschooler, and he loves his teacher. She is wonderful.
Then it was back to the kid’s Elementary school to wrap up the lunch with the teachers. The two little kids enjoyed a little lunch of their own with Jex in the lunchroom.
Then off to Stella’s Valentine’s party.
They had yummy banana splits, and enjoyed opening their class valentines.
Stella absolutely adores her teacher, Mrs. Blakely. I am thankful for her too.
By this time, I was sure the little one would have a break-down because she was so tired. She proved me wrong again, she is so good at rolling with the punches. She also looked so adorable.
…and she just rolled right along as we went to Jex’s love bash. I am his homeroom mom, so I got to plan all the goodies for this one.
Heart shaped Krispy Kremes(which were adorable, btw), and homemade strawberry lemonade.
I love hanging out with my awesome 3rd grader.
He loves hanging out with his great teacher, Miss Hartsfield.
When we got home, I crashed on the couch. I was exhausted.
I was thankful the kids parties were all at different times.
I am always grateful to spend time with them in their classrooms.
Luckily, I didn’t have to make dinner. There was lasagna, bread and salad left from the teacher’s lunch. That was a bonus, and it was the perfect Valentine’s dinner.
Jonathan got home from work late, but made sure to bring me the sweetest gift.
He is so thoughtful, and I totally failed.
I put too much time in to the kids this year.
I will do better next year.
I still love my Valentine, and I am so grateful he chose me almost 13 years ago.
I love my whole family. Love is wonderful thing.
I love Valentine’s Day. I think it a beautiful holiday.
