Sweetheart Tea

My sweet, little boy invited me to a Sweetheart Tea at his school, today.

I was so excited to go! Each student in his class was allowed to invite a special someone to a tea, which was held during the last half hour of class.

Dylan came out of his classroom, and led me into a room, where I could put my coat and get my picture taken with him. Then he led me into another room, where our feast awaited. The students prepared a dessert for us. It was a slice of angel food cake topped with cherries, whipped cream, and a chocolate heart. We got to choose between iced tea or lemonade for our drink.

It was Dylan's snack day today, so each student got to eat the snack he picked out (Gogurt, Valentine's Day cookies, and chocolate milk), while we ate our desserts.

My dessert was sitting on a placemat that Dylan made for me, and had a homemade card next to it!

Seriously, how sweet is that?!?

While we were eating, Dylan's class performed three songs, and then handed out flowers and Hershey's Kisses.

It was such a sweet party!

He is my sweetheart!

As we were leaving, he realized that he forgot to say goodbye to his teachers. I followed behind as he ran back to his classroom to hug his teachers and wish them a Happy Valentine's Day. He is such a sweet, considerate, loving boy!

I finally got out of the house tonight. I went to my parent's house for a delicious dinner, and played Quiddler with my mom for a few hours. It was nice to get out!

My parents had a big goody bag for us for Valentine's Day. Plenty of candy for all of us, books for the kids, and a mug, candy dish, and socks for me. They are always thinking of their children and grandchildren!

It was a great day!!!
