Valentines Day 2011

We love the holidays at our house! In fact, sometimes we can't wait until the actual day like this Valentines Day for example. It wasn't me this time though, it was Kelly calling it early this year. The boys came out with Kelly and gave me a nice card and some chocolates, Kelly gave me a nice card and a pedicure set (including a 1 hour pedicure from him).
It was great, but I thought we should wait to give the boys their "gifts of LOVE" till the morning, but Kelly guilted me into atleast giving them their chocolate treats.
A Giant Hershey's Kiss was what they got!
They are both big fans of Chocolate, but as you can see from the picture, one has a more pure love of all things chocolate.

This is Hunter heading straight into a chocolate coma.
(No, I didn't let him eat the whole thing that night)

Valentines morning, we generally have pink pancakes or something of that nature, but we had just had German pancakes and so I didn't think we needed a sweet breakfast. So, I used my genius creative side and came up with heart shaped scrambled eggs and ham. We also had a banana. I thought it was obvious that the eggs were a special shape, but apparently it wasn't as noticeable to a 3 and 5 year old.

The boys each got a card from us with a little chocolate heart.

Chance was so excited that he couldn't hold still for a picture.
(Hence the blur!)

Funny Kid

This was my final "craft" for V-day. I was originally going to make it a wall hanging, but discovered it was the perfect holiday hotpad.
After a crazy, busy day of preschool and wrestling we came home and had a yummy heart shaped pizza for dinner. It was fun!

Last but not least here is my junior version of the paper heart garland.
It was kind of a funny V-day this year due to a sick husband, and sick kids the night Kelly and I were going to go out for our "romantic evening". But, all in all we love eachother and are so happy to be a part of our little McGee family.
