We have made our way through a dreary and cool (albeit not compared to the North!) January. Valentine’s Day is always a fun day to look forward to because it is full of everything pink and sparkly and sweet. I love any excuse to have a celebration and themed activities, so I hope my kids look back on these little moments fondly. Here are some pictures from our Valentine’s Day!
We worked hard on our Valentine cards and boxes for school. Nolan went with sports themed cards and Brady did Star Wars (again!)
I made a big batch of strawberry play-doh for my class Valentine party but the boys got to have some too. They played with this for a long time!
Brady got the cutest Valentine from a sweet girl that he plays with at the playground every day. I love how she made it so perfect for him!
I tried so hard to get a cute picture of the boys on Valentine’s Day and this was the best I could do. Notice Nolan sticking his finger into Brady’s throat!
Another classic Nolan picture moment!
I was so lucky to have off work on Valentine’s Day and be able to surprise the kids at school at lunchtime. Not sure if they were happy to see me or the smoothies I brought them!
Nothing says love like a heart shaped ham sandwich in a lunchbox.
You haven’t lived life until you’ve eaten lunch at the Kindergarten table. It’s always fun to see my sweet boys at school.
We decided to do a family dinner out for Valentine’s day this year. The kids were happy because they got pizza.
I love Brady’s mouthful of food in this picture!
Not sure why Nolan insisted on this pose, but I went with it!
My funny Valentine. But really, is there a more real life picture of Valentine’s Day on year #16 that you’ve been celebrating together? In our P.J.’s by 7:30 and waiting for the kids to wind down so we can drink champagne…
Flowers, pretty alcohol and fluffy animal cards- Chris knows how to keep me happy on Valentine’s Day.
He also surprised me with Elton John concert tickets!!! Music is my love language!
Cheers to the cheesiest Hallmark holiday! I’m here for all of it! (well maybe not the dirty socks in the background!)
