Our Valentines Day celebrating started a day early when I picked up the boys on Wednesday with HEART BALLOONS! :)
Luke's Valentines this year were pretty simple. Originally they were going to say "You Color My World, Valentine"... but he informed me that was "weird". :)
The Valentines "badge" we got for Daddy to wear at work on Thursday. We also got one for each of his teachers. :)
I'm the Sponsor for the Middle School Student Government and when they asked to sell candy grams for Valentines Day I was happy to oblige. I had NO idea it was going to take off like it did and we ended up selling almost 500 candy bars in three days. I picked them all up from Sam's on Wednesday afternoon and got some funny looks from people. I guess a 30-week prego woman pushing a cart FULL of candy is a sight :)
After dinner on Wednesday night we let the boys open their Valentines gifts. They each got a book (I'll have to post a pic later... they're really cute) and Luke got a...
Everyone had to kiss Woody :)
... and I don't think he liked it at all :)
On Thursday morning I woke up to find this sweet card and flowers from my boys. I LOVE gerber daisies and they know me so well :)
Thursday morning we attended the wedding of Q and U at MCA (more on that later) and the rest of the day was fairly "standard" for me. I found this picture of my Valentine and I back in 2000 :)
In the craziness that was getting Luke, his Valentines, his QU gear and 500 candy bars (that I sorted and labeled) all to school by 7:30 I totally forgot to bring lunch. Thankfully I used my afternoon planning period wisely and made a trip to PeiWei and Sonic :)
After school Luke presented me with a "blue jewel" necklace that he made for me (yes, that's him POURING over his Lego sticker book in the back... )
Dave came home for a quick break before heading back to the club for Valentine's dinner service and I tried to snap a pic of him and his boys while wearing his badge:
The rest of our evening was uneventful... mac and cheese for dinner and lots and lots of snuggles. Mason's favorite part of the day was the balloons.
