Monday Manners: Famous Love Quotes

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!

In case you need that extra something to add to your Valentine’s card, here are some great quotes about love…

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

Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height.
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

so I never have to live without you.  Winnie the Pooh

I hope y’all have a wonderful start to your week!

  1. All of those kiddos are adorable together! And you just reminded me of the Super Star! Only one boy and one girl got it per nine weeks when I was growing up. Bryan and I are making valentines this year. I found a leather-bound book with blank pages. I've been collecting famous or just beautiful love poems or quotes that I am going to write in it. I thought it would be a great thing to add to whenever one of us finds something new. And it's so pretty that it can be used to decorate, too.

  2. Super cute raccoon story! I love it! Everyone seems a little extra happy with cutie Chester! I love the photos of the girls especially Chester and W doing the Vday cards. ADORABLE!
    Happy Valentine's Day! Stella's party at school is today- we are all PINK & RED for the occasion. Its going to be super cute I know!

  3. I love that top and might have to see if they have it in store locally!! Bryce and I are going to cook a romantic dinner together and have a low key evening. I love those quotes–I'm a quotes collecter and am going to have to add some of those to my long list!
