Here are just a few of the things I "hearted" this year around Valentine's Day, in no particular order...
Getting a Valentine in Spanish from Lydia
Worth every penny for the after-preschool Spanish class.
This guy and eating heart-shaped grilled cheese for lunch.
(I kind of went crazy with heart shapes this year. See below.)
Making my own scratch-off cards for mi familia.
Tyler and Lydia were fans. Luke scratched off two and said, "here, you do the rest." :)
Again, heart shapes...Rice Krispy treats (with red sprinkles of course) and more scratch off cards for Lydia's ballet class.
Yes, I have a problem with scratch-off cards. Good thing I don't play the lottery.
These two handsome devils.
This little beauty...
And my mom, who came up last weekend and took Lydia and me to see the Broadway show "Beauty and the Beast." Lydia loved it and did pretty well sitting through it, even though it was late at night. She was telling her friends all about it at preschool today. "It was magical."
And my sister-in-law, who came to visit us even though she worked the night before, stayed up all day the next day, played with my kids a ton, and went on the carousel at Seaside with Lydia just because Lydia wanted to and they make me sick.
And my brother, who also went on the carousel even when he didn't really want to (as you can see :) and taught Luke to "fist pump." Ask Luke for a demo next time you see him.
Of course, this list is not complete in the least. I have many, many people and things I love that I just didn't happen to have pictures of from the last month. Like my dad and our trip to Pendleton and Ty's family, for example. So, now you know, if you want to make it on my Valentine's Day blog post next year you better come visit in February and bring your own camera (or steal mine and take pictures with it) because I need photographic proof to post. Also, our house will be empty this weekend for the first time in a few weeks....we need more visitors.
