Happy Valentine's Day

Collin holding his Valentine's present. He was so excited. He even slept with it tonight.

(Below and right) Connor's kindergarten Valentine's party. Thanks for my mom and grandmother watching my two little ones so I could attend!

(Above) Caleb's second grade Valentine's party. I was able to serve as a party helper for Caleb's afternoon party.

We ate dinner at home, but tried to make it a little more festive for the holiday. We sat in the dining room, added a tablecloth, and ate family style. The boys even traded in their regular plastic dinner plates, for the real breakable kind.

The boys and I watched the Charlie Brown Valentine's special tonight (prerecorded from the weekend). Midway through the show, Caleb says, "Charlie Brown sure isn't having a good Valentine's Day."

"Did you have a good Valentine's Day," I asked.

He nodded and rattled off several highlights from the day.

I inquired, "Caleb, what was the best part of your Valentine's Day?"

"Having Mom at my Valentine's Party," he responded.

I was shocked, but I knew hearing those six little words was the very best Valentine's gift of all.
