Valentine’s Day 2013

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Isn’t this the cutest tulip arrangement?  My friend, Staci, ROCKS! 

We had kind of a low key day around here.  We’ve been battling sickness this week (Charlotte – pink eye & stomach bug; Trenton – pink eye), so we just stayed around the house.

But that didn’t stop us from having fun!

2013-02-14 Valentine's Day

Since sickness has been going around the house, we hadn’t made valentines for Daddy yet, so we worked on that.  I’ve seen tons of cute things on Pinterest, but I decided to ask each of the kids what THEY wanted to make Daddy.

Charlotte of course wanted to make him a valentine with hearts.  I grabbed some sticky backed foam out of my stash, cut some hearts out, and Charlotte went to town sticking them on a piece of cardstock. 

And it wouldn’t be a valentine without a little glitter, would it?

Trenton knew exactly what he wanted to make Daddy, too.  A calculator.  So that he could use it at “preschool.”  (Both kids call Naval Postgraduate School Daddy’s preschool!)

Trenton drew a big rectangle, I drew the buttons inside the calculator, and then Trenton got to work labeling them using the calculator on my phone as a guide.

You + Me = Love

You + Me = Love

You + Me = LoveYou + Me = Love

How cute is that backwards L and the division sign with a vertical line rather than a horizontal one?

And I have to include this picture of Charlotte.  She rarely poses AND smiles for the camera, but when she does, it’s just too cute!

We love breakfast for dinner in our house.  Pink heart pancakes were on the Valentine’s Day menu for the kids tonight!

Daddy walked in from school just as the kids were finishing up their dinner.

Not only did he bring me flowers, but he brought Charlotte some too.

Wow.  I don’t think Charlotte has ever been more excited about a gift.  Or more appreciative.  All evening she talked about how pretty her flowers are and how much she loves Daddy and how he is so nice.

Jarrod and I got our dinner made (and eaten before I even thought of taking a picture of our bacon-wrapped jalapeno chicken and spanish rice), the kids bathed, stories read, and the kids in bed. 

Now it’s movie time.

Have a good night!

o my god, the calculator, amazing. When we picked up Kev today, Cullen goes "Did you and your friends have a party at school daddy?" haha Did Charlotte get a haircut??

Thanks, Trenton is so proud of it! Ha! I love Cullen! We should have sent cupcakes with Kev and Jarrod and they could have eatan them together and taken pictures! And yes, I cut Charlotte's hair yesterday. I can't believe that she actually sits still for me!

Love those tulips. Looks like you had a great Valentine's day despite the illness. We've been sick too. Can't wait for flu season to be over!
