Family Valentine’s Day

We started Valentine’s Day with a fun breakfast and ended the day with a fun Valentine’s Day dinner.  Here is the kitchen table when the kids woke up that morning….

I always so that I am not going to go overboard with treats for the kiddos… then I got to Target. :(  Foster got some new play dough, a balloon, suckers, gum, a DVD, a small red car, and some chocolates.

Emma got the Frozen Soundtrack CD, a balloon, a sticker book, math flashcards, suckers, and chocolate.

For some reason I didn’t get any pictures of the kiddos with their treats!

For dinner the kids helped me make a fun dinner for Daddy.  Here is the table right before dinner.

Martha Stewart would definitely not approve of these chocolate covered strawberries but they still tasted good!

I found this recipe for “Valentine Blondies” on Pinterest- they were really yummy!

Cash- 14 months

Cash is changing so much every day, it makes me sad and happy at the same time!  He is fiercely independent, entertaining himself for hours upon end- maybe because the rest of us are always so busy!  He is hilarious, he already knows how to get a laugh out of us and he eats up the attention.  He is as sweet as can be.  He has just recently started giving us the best hugs.  He will just come over and lay his head on our laps and we love it every time.  Cash really started walking full time right around 14 months.  He was a bit wobbly for a few days but very quickly became steady on his feet.

Here are a few pictures that I took of Cash on the day that he turned 14 months old, just a few days before Valentine’s Day.

Cash has two separate sets of dimples, one set very low down and one set in the normal dimple spot. :)  I think this makes him unique.

Cash’s shirt says “I stole Mom’s heart.”  This is so very true.
