Valentine's Day

We had a really great Valentine's Day this year.  Ryan's school district had a furlough day so he got to stay home.  We made a whole day out of it and had a lot of fun together.  In the morning I woke up to a surprise left for me from Colin. I'd left him some cards and some chocolates too.  Then I packed the kids up and we went to the only-store-I'm-allowed-to-shop-at for treats to take Daddy at the office.  We also got him some lunch and headed downtown to surprise him. 

After that little excursion, we delivered some Valentines to Curen, Grandma and Grandpa, and Aunt Jessie.  My dad got me a gift card for a pound of chocolates at See's.  I'm pretty excited about that but have been dieting and haven't cashed it in yet. 

I brought the boys back home and we worked on a fun craft that I had planned for them.  It was a lot of fun and took up a lot of time so that helped to pass the day away.  The boys thought I was a genius for thinking of the craft but I have to credit all of the crafting blogs I've been reading lately.

When Colin came home we thanked each other for all of the goodies and had a small dinner together. Then I headed over to the gym and Colin put the boys to bed. 

I got the boys each a Valentine stuffy, a box of chocolates, and a card.  They were thrilled! 

I had my camera on the wrong settings but this was the only picture I took of what Colin got for me.  It was a stuffed frog holding some chocolates, a really sweet card, and a dozen roses. 
I decided to be really selfish and bring the roses up to my bedroom.  I thought it was more romantic to have them there than in the kitchen. 

Ryan celebrated Valentine's Day at school the Friday before.  He came home with lots and lots of cards and candies.  He refuses to discard any of them... yet. 


What a great Valentine's Day - you are a terrific stay-at-home mom!
