I LOVE Valentine's day! I don't know why, but I always have. I believe in showing love every day of the year, but there is something great about making things extra special on Vday.
John was out of town this week, so the girls and I went to Little Rock. We got back yesterday to new floors (I will post pictures when we are settled back in and clean!) and lots of dust! After spending a few hours cleaning our kitchen last night, I made blueberry muffins for the girls to eat before school. When Emma woke up, we realized that we really don't have a place to eat, so I told her I would fix her breakfast in bed. I broke out a bed tray that John and I got as a wedding gift and have maybe used twice in 8 years. It might be Emma's new favorite thing. It was really fun serving her breakfast in bed. We shot a couple of pictures before school in their Valentine attire. Take note of the dusty floors in the back. Yes, I spent my Mother's Day Out cleaning like a mad woman. We have a long way to go, but it is livable for now. John got home around 4:30. We enjoyed a family picnic on the our new floor, eating heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's. Then, Emma and I decorated cookies for John and Brooklyn. (and ourselves!) It was a fun Vday!
Oh, and did I mention that my husband rocks? Since he was going to be gone all week, he wrote me Valentine's to open each day. I'm a sucker for those kind of things. I love him!
The girls are going to Mountain Home this weekend with John's parents. John and I get to celebrate Vday and my birthday this weekend with no kiddos. It will be a fun weekend and lots of work to get things back together. I'm looking forward to being just us for a brief time.
Happy Valentine's everyone!
