It’s the day before Valentine’s Day! Have you picked out the perfect something for your significant other yet? What did you get? Are y’all doing something special to celebrate? I’d love to hear! I’m in charge of E’s Valentine’s party at school, so I’ve been trying to get things together for it.
The girls finished their Valentine’s last night. I always do it two days before, in case there are any meltdowns and we have to stop. That way there’s still one more day to finish them. W was also the Super Star last week, so she got to bring home their class pet, Chester (the stuffed raccoon) for the weekend. He’s been doing everything with our family, including making Valentine’s. Sadly, he’ll have to return to school on Tuesday.

The hubs and I were laughing at how into it, W was. We usually have to really coax her to smile,
and she sure was all super cheesy smiles, when we were taking these photos.
Dina asked me where I got my top. I ordered it a couple of weeks ago from Banana Republic
I just checked the site, and unfortunately it seems to be sold out, but here’s a similar version.

My sister (#2 of the 6) was in town this past weekend. We hadn’t seen her since Christmas, so this was a treat! All the kids had the best time hanging out! Her daughter (E, in the pink blanket) is two months younger than L. Don’t her son, W, and my W look so much alike?? And to think both of their mamas have brown hair and brown eyes!

For, you see, each day I love you more,

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
