Valentine's Day

The children made Valentine's the night before the sweetest day.

Before bed Eli was using the massager in his bed and Piper wanted to know what the heck was up! She was very concerned with the noise.

That morning they awoke to some little sweets and gifts. Matthew made them both cards that had a photo of them and the puppy that belonged to them. :) I made little truffles and chocolate coins and put them in little boxes I decorated with monkeys. :)

They made more Valentine's that morning.

See Remy's little hair flip? Now go and compare him to a Curious George photo and let me know what you think. :)

Elijah made this big card.

Remy made a butterfly for Taylor. :)

We received some Valentine's from Taylor in the mail. :) Sweet girl. :) We love you!

The boys wanted to go and give her candy and cards that they had made. So we went to Miss Taylor's house for a quick visit. :)

Photobucket

She showed me the "Love Monster" she made to hold her Valentine's from her classmates. It was so cute!!! She did great!

Photobucket

We even witnessed signs of spring at Miss Taylor's house. :)

After dinner out we came home. I was not feeling well at all! It was the worst Valentine's ever! And that is so bad considering that it isn't just V day for me, it is my 11th anniversary! But we came home and I snuggled with my bunny girl! :) She is so sweet and loves lovin'!

Look at what a lovely girl she is. I love it when she stands on her hind legs. :)

Of course the little weenies couldn't leave all that snuggling to Beatrix the bunny. :)

To be loved by a doggie is one of the sweetest gifts on earth. :) And they are such good girls and they give us such love that we don't deserve! :)

We read lots of books on Valentine's Day. This first one was very cute.

Photobucket

I loved this next one, it was the history of Valentine's Day. It was very neat to see how it progressed and how some of the things we do today came from lovers long ago. :)

Photobucket

I checked out two craft books and the second one in the photo is where Remy got the idea for the butterfly he made for Taylor.

Photobucket

Remy LOVED this little book. But who can stay away from little Biscuit?

Photobucket

I leave you with a photo I captured of my tulips. I love how red and vibrant it is...

I hope you all had a very sweet day!
