Valentine’s Day Fun

Weekly Happenings: This past week was rather uneventful with the exception of Friday, which was Valentine’s Day. Friday was full of fun for Joseph at school and then after Paul got home from work, we exchanged gifts and then went out to eat. It was a nice time, for sure!

The Weekly Weather: It’s been typical February weather: a humid cold that just seems to suck the warmth from your very bones, haha. I think that’s why it’s my least favorite month, weather-wise.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been taking it easy, resting his finger as much as he can. He should be able to get the stitches out in a couple of days.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary on my part.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He enjoyed Valentine’s Day at school and has also enjoyed utilizing a little “book nook” I set up in his room that has pillows to make it nice and cozy. He’ll sit there and read for quite a bit.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been saying some pretty funny things. Just one example: she came up and told me that her teeth were stuck and that she needed to go to the doctor so that they could take them out.

This Week in Pictures:

I made my nails pretty for Valentine’s Day.
She asked for juice and snuggled right into the newly-vacant spot that was created as I was starting to get up to get some for her. When I got back, she told me “no thank you” when I offered her the juice. I think she discovered a way to procure a pre-warmed seat on a chilly day and that I got played, haha.
Paul’s wood chipper came in a huge box.
The kids enjoyed making it into a playhouse…
…and a rocket ship.
When I realized just how grimy my piano keys have gotten (10 extra sets of hands playing the piano every week tends to do that), I went to town and cleaned them really well. It looks like a whole new piano!
I want to be on whatever team she’s on…I would be kind of scared to go up against her, to be honest, haha.
Abigail watching one of her favorite shows.
It’s a reboot of one of my favorite shows when I was little. Luckily, the humor is still as age-appropriate and fun (sometimes that doesn’t happen with reboots).
Playing with her Little People house and school.
Unwrapping her present from Paul. He got her a little box with a balloon, tiny teddy bear, and some candy. He got me one as well (they were a fundraiser for a group at his work). Abigail has since absconded with both balloons. 🙂
Paul got me pearl earrings to match the necklace I got from my mom quite a few years ago. She bought it, wore it for a little while, and then set it aside to give to me. She said that she did that so that I would have a piece of jewelry that she had worn. I love my momma!
Paul also brought home flowers and chocolate. I have now discovered that 86% cacao is a bit too bitter for plain eating (at least to my taste buds), so I popped it into the pantry for when I need bittersweet chocolate for baking. He also brought home some 70% which was perfect. 🙂
Paul even brought home flowers for Abigail (another fundraiser at work). Before you think the boys got left out, they didn’t. Paul brought Joseph some Kit Kats and purchased a digital copy of an inexpensive Switch game. I got Paul a monocular which is kind of like binoculars but is only one lens. He can even attach it to his phone and take pictures (which will reflect the magnification).
She told me her jammies and slippers were “so sparkly and beautiful.” 😍
All ready for church!
Oh, how I love these two!
She wanted one more picture. She’s saying “cheese” but has her mouth full of pancake. 😂
I had to get a close-up of her shoes because I think they’re so stinkin’ cute!
