Happy Valentine's Day!

What a fun day! I just love Valentine's Day. I love the colors, the decorations (especially at Target), the parties, the date night and the joy on my children's faces. We have had a really fun week this week. (Maybe because mommy is not totally preoccupied with A Taste of Honey?!?) Mark and I enjoyed a date at home last night, which I must say was really, really nice. We took the kids to childcare at church and then ate takeout from One-Thirty-Five Prime. We are really never here without our children, so it was a nice change. I would highly recommend it! No wait, great food and the house all to yourself:). Here are some pictures of the week.

Ally was showing me her 'bee mine' shirt from Honey and GP. She kept saying, "Mommy look there's a bee!"
Ryan was also sporting a new Valentine shirt from GP and Honey. I love him in a clean collared shirt:)

Ryan's Party in Mrs. Dunlap's class. This week they learned a lot about the history of Valentine's Day and that it is a day to celebrate friendship as well. I sure have learned a LOT from my 5 year-old son this year. In this picture Ryan is smiling his real smile, which has to be caught quick, and he is enjoying Nacho Cheese Doritos and a ice cream sunday. It really doesn't get much better than that.


The whole class

Honey and Ryan at school. It's hard getting a hug from Ryan, but Honey can always make it happen. She'll just chase him down until he gives in. (I think he secretly LOVES that game!)

Me and my favorite little guy. OH MY, Look who got a highlight! A very special Valentine treat to myself.


This morning we had a sugar filled fiesta. Shipley's followed by candy. AWESOME! Thanks Aunt Kacey for these treats, they were a hit! Ally got a new Elmo video that we had to watch immediately.


Ryan got...you guessed it a new LEGO.

Every year my sisters and I got a special treat from my dad, so I suggested that Mark start getting something special for Ally. This is her treasured gift, a Mylar balloon. You would have thought we saw Mickey Mouse in person, she was that excited!

If we could just all be that joyful!!! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
