My nieces joined us this morning for our annual Valentine's Day chocolate cake breakfast. We loaded them up on sugar and sent them on their way. It would be nice if Valentine's Day would always fall on a weekend so we wouldn't have to rush off to school and work right after breakfast, but it's still a pretty sweet way to start a weekday.
Neve (I) made little iPhones to give to her classmates as valentines. I found the template on Pinterest, but it still took me hours to customize and adjust it to the size of the candy hearts I bought. Remember the night of little sleep that I mentioned in the last post? That's when this project got done.
This is the card Neve started writing to her teacher before I saw it and made her erase it and start over. They don't call their teacher by her first name. I don't know where that came from.
Even though Spencer and Chloe don't have valentine parties anymore, they still wanted to give out valentines. So this is what they (I) came up with. Have I mentioned that I love valentines day?
The momentum of the day kind of fizzled after breakfast. After work, we went to Dale's mom's for supper. It was very nice, but not the romantic dinner of our youth. But we're heading out of town for the weekend tomorrow, so we'll fit in a dinner of some sort then. We're going to have ourselves an adventure - we're going to drive as far south as we can in one day, stay a couple of days, then drive back home. We all like driving trips and are looking forward to a break. When we go away, I am very good at completely forgetting I have any responsibilities. I'll keep doing my picture of the day on Instagram (I've also put the link on the sidebar), so you can see what we're up to if you want.
