Valentine's Day 2010

Valentine's Day. What can I say? It's never been a big day for me, and today wasn't good.

Yesterday, my parents watched the kids while Grant and I met our good friends for dinner at The Olive Garden. Dinner was delicious, and it was wonderful to hang out with our friends, without kids.

After dinner, Grant and I shopped for Lexie's birthday presents. We spoiled her with many gifts that she will absolutely love! Plus, I found an adorable birthday outfit for her.

We picked up the kids, and then went back to our friend's house for a few hours.

The fun ended on the way home.

Today was most definitely the worst Valentine's Day I've ever had. The day was long and emotionally draining.

The kids enjoyed their Valentine's Day gifts. We gave Lexie a Tinkerbell lollipop and a mini Barbie, and gave Dylan a Buzz Lightyear lollipop and a Lego set.

Later in the afternoon, Dylan played a new Wii game, while Lexie and I made Valentine's Day cookies.

Lexie had a busy day, and fell asleep on the couch. Dylan got to stay up a bit later to watch a movie, because he doesn't have school tomorrow. Instead, he is going to a Kindergarten preview in the afternoon. It's going to be a big day for him!

We are gearing up for a busy week, with...more snow!!! Yes, we're supposed to get 4-6 inches tomorrow, and a few more inches over the week. I am so over the snow. I have too much to do this week to worry about it. Dylan has the kindergarten preview tomorrow, T-ball sign-ups on Wednesday, a field trip on Friday, and I have to prepare for Lexie's birthday party, which is on Saturday! I wish we weren't getting more snow!

  8. Have you ever read about our vacation to Yellowstone? We had a "bad day" on that trip. Let's just say that the way I will remember Old Faithful is not in the way I wish I would.

    Hope things are okay. E-mail me if you need to! I'm a good vent-receiver.

  10. I'd have to say that my Valentine's Day was the worst I've had in ...uh.... 20 years. =0(
