Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! 

I have been feeling very sorry for myself lately and then just gave myself an extra guilt trip for not doing more for the kids for Valentine's Day. No cute crafts or shirts or extra special outings. No handmade valentines. I was proud of myself for actually leaving school in a timely fashion on Thursday to run Michael to Walmart to let him pick out his Valentines for his class before getting home to the girls. I even let him write his name on all of them himself. I thought I was doing good until I started doing the age old self destructing comparison game. It never fails. And you know? Now I am totally over it. It is amazing what a good night's sleep and a fun night with your family can do. I am doing just fine and don't need to compare myself to anyone for self affirmation. 

I did, however, get the girls all gussied up a few weeks ago to get photos taken for their Valentine's Day cards. I've tried to send out photo cards for the past few years to our family and I think it is a neat tradition, at least while kids are little and so cute. I ordered them through shutterfly and they came just in the knick of time to get them sent out at the end of this week. I hope everyone enjoyed getting them as much as I loved sending them! I had these cutie-patootie outfits from a friend and they had been too big for a while- and luckily they started fitting right at Valentine's Day so it all worked out well! 

Here are a few photos from our little session: 


You can tell in this photo she was just starting to get sick- which later hurled us into a two week illness battle. Girls are better now and hopefully I will touch on it later but it is funny how I didn't see that in this photo until now. 


Silly girls! 

Catching flies. 

...and we can't forget about big brother! Looking handsome, as always. 

I hope you have a great holiday spending time with the ones you love!

  1. Michael is so handsome and I enjoy seeing him in his weekend PJs : ) It must have felt exhaustingly long with the run of illness -- glad everyone is feeling better. Yes, it's magical that family time and a night's rest can melt away guilt!! Keep the pics coming ... totally LOL'ing on the "catching flies!" Classic.
