She's a Lover AND a Fighter

Abby loves Valentine's Day. She's been looking forward to it since the day after Christmas. I woke up a couple of weeks ago, walked into the living room where Bean said, "Good morning!" and Abby said, "Happy Valentine's Day, Mom!"

I'm not one of those people who decorate's for every holiday. I don't have anything against the holidays, they just usually sneak up on me and are here before I know it. I have heart window clingys that I guess I should have put up at least, but I'm just not motivated for it this year. December and January have been a whirlwind for me and I feel like I'm playing catch-up... and losing.

But I'm taking some inspiration from Abby. I bought her a new dress covered in hearts and her Grandma D sent her a new Angelina Ballerina movie that had a heart shaped locket with it. It's the first necklace Abby will wear.

Abby doesn't like chocolate which was very fortunate for Bean and I, because she took great joy in feeding us all of her chocolates she got from school. He wore almost as much as he ate.

This is one of the Valentine's that Abby brought home from one of her favorite friends at school. I thought it was so cute!

We bought our Valentine's this year, because that's what Abby wanted to do. But I think we'll make them next year. I found this idea on Design Dazzle and I think it would be a really fun project for Ab and I.

Toni found this idea here

We are enjoying a quiet day at home today and then my honey and I are going to a movie tonight. I hope your Valentine's Day is exactly what you want it to be.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Emily was anxiously awaiting her Valentine's party at school (set for Friday the 12th). Unfortunately it snowed here all day Thursday and schools were closed both days. When I told her there was no school on Friday she almost cried because she realized there would be no party. So, trying to be a good mom, we threw one here with cookies, chocolates, music and dancing, and of course, Valentines. It was cute. It is funny how they cling to certain things. Happy V-day!

Thanks, Ladies.

Andi- Happy Valentine's to you, too.

Kerri- That is being a GREAT MOM! That covers you for at least 2 impatient moments. : )
