Love Is All Around

Today was (hopefully) our last day of being snowed in. Actually, the roads were clear this afternoon, but I stayed home to babysit my best friend's boys.

We got a bit of snow tonight (HA! Hahahahaha! I just may be going crazy.), and the roads are covered. They BETTER be clear in the morning. (Listen up, PennDot.) Because Dylan NEEDS to go to school. I NEED to get out of this house for a few hours. Plus, I would hate for his Valentine's Day party and Sweetheart Tea to be postponed until next Wednesday.

Dylan wrote out his very first Valentine's Day cards to his classmates today. Last Friday, he decided on Star Wars cards, and today, he had fun preparing them. He diligently wrote his name on each card, and helped me attach a lollipop to them. I can't believe that the time has come for him to give out Valentines!

Tonight, Lexie joined in on the fun. We made thumbprint cards for the grandparents. They had a great time dipping their thumbs in paint and stamping the cards. Lexie got a bit overzealous with the thumbprints at times!

Once again, Dylan signed the cards. This time, he impressed me by saying that he wanted to write Love, Dylan on them. I started to spell out love for him, but he stopped me with a sigh. "Mommy, I KNOW how to spell love!" What shocked me the most, was that he did! He even knew to add a coma after the word love.

Our next project is going to be Valentine's Day cookies! YUM!

Dylan's tooth is really wiggly right now. I am wondering when it's going to fall out. His 6 year molars are officially in, but this tooth has been loose for 8 months, and will not fall out! Even the dentist was surprised that it hadn't fallen out yet, and that was almost 3 months ago!

Maybe he can lose it in a Valentine's Day cookie?

So, yes, we do have cabin fever. But hopefully that will all come to an end tomorrow, when we return to normal life. It' s been a perpetual weekend here...since last Friday!!!

Love is in the air! (And we need to celebrate. Please, Mother Nature?)

  1. I hope all that snow melts fast for you! It's weird hearing everyone else talk about snow. We usually get covered every winter but every big storm keeps missing us. I won't complain!

    Dylan must be so excited to pass out his Valentine's! I loved making the little mailboxes in school and then passing them out to all the classmates.
