I *KNEW* she could do the dance... little stinker. Here she is, in all her glory! Excuse the nose picking... she's four.
Valentines day was woooonderful! I love V-day. I got to sleep in and I woke up to the scent of crepes, yum! M gave us a beautiful little tantrum because it was Ps turn to say the prayer, what a great way to start the day... we gave the kids a bath and then set off for the mall to try to find CJ a Arizona Cardinals shirt. No dice, apparently Sierra Vista doesn't support the Cards....? I'll have to order one I guess. Wandered around a bit, which, in our teeny mall, doesn't take long. Went to Texas Roadhouse for lunch, mmmm. Funny that CJ and I ate there for V-day a year ago too, mum was here (when I got my gallbladder removed) and watched the kids then. Deeelicious, my steak was perfect and the kids hot dogs were snarfed down. J loves the mashed potatoes there. I love going there for lunch because there's never a wait! After that we went to Target to look for presents. CJ decided to get a new Gerber knife, and I couldn't pick, so CJ said we would go home and I could chill out with the kids and he'd go find something as a surprise. Okay...
So we got home, I cleaned a bit and tried to get J to take a nap. Didn't work, so I put in the "move it move it" movie (Madagascar 2 to those who don't speak Humpheryese) and we watched that then played/destroyed J's room. I did some ChaCha and CJ came home and woooo!!! He got me 2 dozen roses (1 dozen white and 1 dozen various colors), and a bouquet of gerbera daisy and such. He also got me an iTunes gift card, the new(ish) Taylor Swift CD, the book "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister", and some truffles. The man doesn't do surprises much, but this... this was great. He rented Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist too, which was good.
What else... M had her V-day party at school on Friday. I made up some cute little Valentine treat bags, and was worrying that she shouldn't bring candy... no worries! She came home with a ton of candy, which she and P and J proceeded to eat all of. Apparently I need to hide things better. Anyways. I used Shabby Princess' new kit Yours Truly to make M's valentines, they turned out pretty cute!
