Happy Valentine's Day!

Well, to all those sweet comments about snow falling down here, the answer is NO! Don't think we're getting any this year, since we're back in the 70 degree temps this week :( I know a lot of you think we're crazy for wanting the white stuff, BUT it would make for some great memories, pictures and it just doesn't happen around here enough!!
As for Valentine's Day 2011, we had our first Valentine play date with some of Jacob's school friends(and the little girl he calls his GIRLFRIEND! Oh NO!), here are some pics from the party!

Can you find his little crush?! blonde hair, red bow and red leggings?!
She's cute, huh? and I told him he can ask her out on a date when he's 30!!!
Would you look at my boy's face compared to all of the others??!...practically sticking his tongue
out and making that mean face :( Thanks, Jake!
...and this was the gift Jacob made at school for his Daddy and I!
PRECIOUS :) It's a hug that we wrap around ourselves while Jacob's at school
Cute, right??!
Those are his hand prints on there too!!!

Hope you all have a VERY Happy Valentine's Day 2011!
Valentine's day last year was the last time my boys were able to see their great-grandmother. thankfully on this day last year, we decided she needed to see them, she was very sick, so I dressed the boys up in their Valentine t-shirts
and we headed to the rehab where she was staying
She was so happy to see us and the boys smiled so big when they saw her...
makes me smile just thinking about it.
You can read more about her and the beautiful life she lived, HERE.
...can't believe it has been a year

So sorry about your grandmother, but I'm so glad that you and the boys have such a wonderful memory of her to associate with Valentine's Day.

my schedule as well.

Adorable pictures! I hope you had a great Valentine's Day my friend. I just made some changes to my Nestwork. I added a Health category that is combined with recipe. I know you had asked me to do that. I also changed it so you can add yourself to that section. You do not need a button. You can just use a picture to add to that category. I hope you are well! have a great night!
