Our Family Valentines Day

The day started off with the kids waking up to hearts hanging in their rooms. 

 Then we had a yummy dinner with Daddy when he came home from work.

Ashlee made cute heart place settings for everyone and help decorate the table with red balloons and streamers. 

 Every year we do a love scavenger hunt for the kiddies.  Here they are finding their clues.

We had a fun time as a family on Valentines.  The kids were surprised when they woke up to hearts hanging everywhere.  Then they were off to school / preschool for some parties there.  That night we did a family valentine party... for dinner we had Chinese food (the kids favorite),  red punch, and strawberry shortcake.  It was a great day being with the people i love the most.  Arlan thanked me that night for being such a great mom and wife and doing all those special things for our family.  I love creating these special memories for them.

All Smiles

On Valentines Day JJ came home from school with a big smile on his face.  He said to me..."  Guess what mom a girl in my class gave me a teddybear, note and candy".  He was so excited and cute about it.  There are 2 little girls in his class that he talks about all the time and this was from 1 of them.  It really made his day. Man he's growing up way too fast for his momma!

Valentine Fun w/ Cousins

The kids had fun getting together with their cousins for some baking.  They made some really cute Valentine cupcakes.  As you can tell from the above pic they were pretty serious about it too! :)  Thanks to Kel for being brave and letting us use her kitchen!
