Valentine's Day

I know it has been a couple days since Valentine's Day but I was pretty sick over the weekend so I'm just now getting to the post.

Chris started a tradition on Amaya's very first Valentine's Day of leaving the kids a Valentine gift and a card in their bed for when they wake up Valentine's morning. It is so much fun for them and for us to see how excited they get.
This year Chris got them a big H*rshey Kiss and a card. We figured it didn't matter if they had chocolate in the morning because they were going to be headed to great grandma's house anyway.Jaxson loves getting cards and I think that was his favorite part.Chris then made heart waffles with the kids for breakfast. They think it's the greatest thing in the world when they get to cook with daddy.After breakfast and baths we took them to their great grandma's house because she had planned a special Valentine party for them. This grandma loves to have little parties for them on special holidays.Chris and I had planned on having a special day together while they were there but I was pretty sick so lunch and grocery shopping was all I could handle.

Later that day I was so sick I couldn't do anything so my wonderful, amazing hubby took all 3 kids, flowers for Amaya's teacher (she just got to move to a big class and was so excited), 3 Bibles, and a bag of food for the food bank to church. I honestly don't think I could have handled all that but he was wonderful and let me have time to rest. Our church offers services on Saturday night and Sunday.

So the kids had a wonderful Valentine's Day and Chris and I will have to have our date night another time.
