We had an amazing day yesterday.
We wanted to spend some time together as a family and well……everyone needs to eat, and I figured that we could plan a fun lunch to have with the kids and to make it a fun and memorable time for all.
The kids love it when we have a “fancy” meal and so we decided to set up the dining room table and have a party. Jon and I threw a few ideas around and decided to make pizza for lunch.
We figured that we could make heart shaped pizza shells….
We also cut up heart shaped pieces of ham and red peppers.
I set up plates of strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes and watermelon balls to snack on.
The kids thought the table looked so fun. In reality it looked a bit like Valentine’s had thrown up all over the table. Hearts, and red and white overload…….
The kids, hyped up on sugar, brought their larger than life personalities to the table….
Geli forced this smile on but in between having a MASSIVE sugar low and having stayed up past midnight babysitting the night before……well, she was a joy to have around. We eventually sent her to bed for an afternoon nap – which miraculously worked wonders for her attitude and disposition. It’s amazing what a little sleep can do, eh?
……………got me some flowers and a card. While I think roses are lovely…..I LOVE tulips.
Aren’t they beautiful?
For once, we remembered to actually take a picture of me…..thereby proving that I actually was here.
And not to be left out, here is my sweet girl, Xandra……..
We laughed and talked and laughed some more. I love when we do things like this because the kids bring these times up later and I love helping to create these special memories for the kids.
Did you do anything special or fun for Valentine’s Day?
