Fun Valentine's Weekend

We had fun Valentine's weekend with the kids. It is fun now that they are older and really getting into the celebration. We had Cookie Grams delivered to each of the kids. They just felt so special, each getting an entire plate of "bad cookies" delivered to their door. They were really good about sharing with their parents :)Stealin' a kiss.Of course, I forgot to take pictures but, Michael and I were able to go to our Church's Valentines dinner. It was fabulous! Prime rib, pesto pasta with grilled veggies on top, cheesy garlic bread, salad and a delectable dessert I can't even think about pronouncing, all for $28. It was a fundraiser for a Mexico mission trip. We had a great time meeting some other church members. One couple has a 5 year old red-headed boy. So we compared notes on redheads all evening ;) But on Sunday night, we bought a Papa Murphy's Take and Bake heart-shaped pizza because Mama wasn't cookin' on Valentines Day. The kids thought that was just cool. We also went to the Dollar store and let them each buy each other a ballon and one toy since we don't do candy. They loved that, too.This was my Valentine's Day present. My hubby made it from scraps of wood he had lying around from our recent remodel. I love it! It fits perfectly under our new breakfast bar. I wanted a tall, sturdy bench instead of bar stools and that is just what I got. I love it! Thanks, Honey!Here are two of my goofy Valentines. They both have red long underwear. Josiah loves to walk around with a coffee cup (filled with tea) so he can look like his dad. It is just so darned cute. He'd live in that Union suit if I'd let him ;PLast but not least, here is my other Valentine, desperate for summer. Everytime I turn around she's in her swim suit wanting to swim in the bath tub. Hey, why not? She looks so much like Stacie and I when we were this age, except for the red hair of course!

I'm scheduling my next two posts for this week because I have to take my sicky computer to the doctor. I think I've got a virus, so hopefully I'll have my computer back by the beginning of next week and I can be blogging at lightning speed. So hang in there with me. I'll try to catch up with all your blogs as soon as I can.

Have a great week!

God Bless,

Your two little red heads are precious!:O)
I love the idea of sending little gifts like that to your kiddos. Such a special treat. And the bench, love it!!
Your hubby & son both look cute in their red outfits. I've already forgotten what they're called. LOL

Have a blessed week my friend!

I've just had my computer to the doctor too, Jackie. Your kids are so cute! I was thinking that your baby girl looks alot like Stacie too. Why don't you post a picture of the two of you beside your little darling so we can see the resemblance up close and personal?

I wish I could add a picture of Stacie and I, but I don't have a scanner :(

Your v-day looked so fun. The heart shape pizza was a really nice touch. Loved all the pics of your family. My daughter was wearing her swim suit with snow boots just the other day.

Sarah said...

Jackie, your Valentines weekend sure looked lots of fun! The photograph of that pizza is making me hungry...I LOVE black olives! Loved the snapshot of your sweet little girl also...she does looks so much like you and Stacy!

The union suits are great...might be an idea for my boys in the winter here! I'd never thought of them before; though I think they are called 'longjohns' here?

Thanks for sharing Jackie!
God Bless
