Happy Heart Day

What a great day. I love Valentine's Day. I love the colours and the cards and the treats and the special heart clothes and the excitement and the creative avenue it provides. My kids have been making cards for a couple of weeks. I buy a whole whack of stuff - ribbons, foam, felt, stickers, paper and let them go crazy. I love watching the intensity that the kids have when they are creating.

Each year I make cards for the kids and Andy and decorate the table for the morning. We always have heart shaped pancakes for breakfast and there are special notes in their snack bags. Today there were 2 extra events that added to the excitement. Avery lost her really lose tooth (Avery's tooth was so gross, she could stick it outside her mouth and close her lips - YUCK!) and Meredith went to the fire station on a field trip. We finished the day out for dinner with my whole family.





This year I made a cool little album for Andy. Here are some pics.




This past week I held a Stampin Up party. We had a great time and Carmen did an awesome job with the make n' take. Thanks Carmen!

I also had dinner with my friends at Thai Sun. I was so annoyed at the end of the dinner when the restaurant turned on the lights to tell us it was time to leave. What is wrong with people!!!!

Can't believe that tomorrow is Friday but I am looking forward to the long weekend.
