Spreading the Love


I LOVE Valentine's Day!! It is such a great way to tell people that you love them, and that you are thinking of them. I think I love it so much from being a first and second grade teacher. As I helped Bradley put together his Valentines for preschool it really made me miss teaching. The kids used to adore Valentine's Day and spreading some love. They would make their sweet little Valentine baskets and pass out all of their cards and candy. So sweet!!


Poor Bradley has missed his Valentine's party for school due to all of the bad weather. They are supposed to have the party Thursday, but it is snowing AGAIN right now as I type this. Oh snow go away! We had a little mini party yesterday in the morning. Bradley got a cupcake dog house, which has been a hit around here. Then we headed off to my Grandmother's 89th and my Great Aunt's 93rd Birthday Party. Here are the two ladies getting their cupcakes.


The whole family was there, and I got some great shots...
Bradley and Gigi

My sweet Valentine with his beloved cupcake


I am in love with this photo of Bradley and Aunt Lindsay


Then my other sweet Valentine outdid himself this year. I was feeling kind of blue on Friday. Not sure why?! I guess I am just REALLY pregnant and hormonal. I almost started crying when I dropped off Bradley at the kidzone at the gym Friday morning. When I told Chris I was in a funk, I came home from the grocery store to these beautiful roses waiting for me. Chris snuck home and dropped them off with a sweet note. This boy is good!!


Then he surprised me with some new charms for my Pandora bracelet. He got me the little girl and the April birthstone (in the middle of the bracelet), and the little boy and the December birthstone (on the right side of the bracelet). Then we went out to our favorite steak house in town and finally watched the Avatar Movie (it was awesome!!).


I made Chris a fancy dinner on Sunday along with some yummy chocolate covered strawberries. I love you sweetie, thanks for putting up with all of my pregnancy hormones!


Hopefully this week my hormones will even out...a pregnant girl can dream, right?!?
