Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!

We had a great day today. This morning we woke up and made Caroline a heart shaped blueberry muffin. Caroline gave Will the Valentine gift that she picked out for him. She picked out an Elmo blanket (that is really soft) because she has a blankey and thought that Will needed to have one too. Here is Caroline giving Will the blanket.

Caroline went to school and had a great time at her Valentine's Day party with her classmates. They exchanged Valentines and had special treats.

After school we went to a Riverbend Bounce House. It is an indoor facility with the blow up bounce houses all over the place. I think that there were five different bounce houses for the kids to play on. I am a member of our local chapter of Moms Club, check out our website here. Today was our Moms Club Valentine's Day Party. There were lots of Moms and kids in attendence. Caroline had a blast, Avery was there and she loves playing with him. I think it is safe to say that Avery is Caroline's best friend. Will had a great time too. He loves to bounce so this was right up his alley. At one point he had a whole bounce house to himself and Caroline went in to help him bounce a little bit. She would gently bounce and he would giggle and laugh out loud. There was one that I could help him with. I would hold his hands and he would jump and giggle and laugh. He was wore out. We all had lunch together and had a great time. It is always nice to have adult conversation during the day and it is nice to have the kids burn off some energy and sleep well! Sorry I don't have any pictures from the bouncing party, I forgot my camera at home!!

When we got home the kids took a "rest", Caroline says she is too big for naps so we have to call them "rests". Anywoo, while they were doing that I made heart shaped cakes for dessert tonight.

Josh got home from work and Caroline gave him the gift that she worked extremely hard on. She was so proud of herself. Josh loved it. Here is the gift...

That is Josh and Caroline holding hands with a bunny nearby. She stamped all of the hearts on the border. They are in a pattern of 2 big hearts then 2 small hearts (she took alot of time with that to make sure that it was just right). She even signed her name.

She made it for him to put in his new office at work.

Then we had supper. As a treat, Josh stopped at Papa Murphy's and picked up a pizza. They were having a special today, a heart shaped pizza!

If your not familiar with Papa Murphy's, it is take and bake pizza. When Josh got home from work we popped it in the oven and 15 minutes later, DINNER!

After dinner we had our heart shaped cakes. We had a "hearty" dinner! LOL!

Caroline made me "Valentimes" all day long. She drew me pictures with hearts and flowers on them. Josh and I exchanged cards this morning. Josh and I gave Caroline a baby doll and baby bottles (she is really into playing with baby dolls right now). And Will gave her a small goodie bag with various things in it. Josh and I gave Will the book by Eric Carle, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? and a matching puzzle with the animals from the book.

We had a really fun day with lots of love. I hope that everyone else had a great day!
