Valentines Day

Valentines Day started on Monday for us.

Isaak has preschool on Monday and not on Tuesday. His party must of been really fun. He came home and wouldn't stop talking. He was so excited to have a bag with his name on it. I really don't think he even thought about what was in the bag.

I came home and a package was on our bed. I had won a Valentines package from Mommy to the Max, so I let the boys open it. They were SO EXCITED!

Mica insisted on wearing his All You Need is Love t-shirt from Ragaboo for Valentines Day. He thinks his teacher liked it because she gave him a huge hug when he walked in the door.

I bought treats for him to take to school. I'm sure Daddy's hands were full!

Mica's Valentine bag is full. It's like Halloween all over again. Mica made me 3 Valentines cards. He loved looking though all his Valentines! One little girl made the mistake we did and wrote all the names on her Valentines. She wrote Mica's name correctly, and her Dad added an "h" on the end. That's how it is typically spelled. Mica was sure to tell us that story a few times over. I told him, "Honey your name, Isaak's name and Mommy's {Alissa} name are for sure going to be misspelled sometimes. We're artsy and like different spellings. That's fine, but don't expect people to spell it right all the time.

Valentines Day was pretty low key at our house. We didn't go out to dinner, or watch a movie. Daddy bought me a Wilton Heart pan. I bought all the boys, including Daddy a candy heart box. They were left in their spots on the table. The boys got cards and gift certificates to Build a Bear from Grandma and Grandpa Spiehs.

After dinner we went to Barnes and Noble. It's the first time I've been to a book store since Borders closed. Borders was always my first choice. We picked out chapter books. Daddy's been reading the boys The Wizard of Oz and they've enjoyed it. We got Treasure Island and Swiss Family Robinson. Huckleberry Finn and a few others were in our hands. We let the boys choose. Isaak seem uninterested in choosing, so I sat down and read him a shorter book called I Need My Monster. It depicted monsters as being friendly, not scary. The illustrations were so cool.

What a cool Valentine's Day package to win! I remember that tee and recall how cute Mica looked wearing it. We are in the process of building a home so we didn't do anything for the day but my hubby did surprise G and me with a little something.
