Happy Valentine's Day!

This is what the kids awoke to this morning.... (at 6 am)Then they opened their Valentine's while I made breakfast crepes....
BronwynBraedenHenry and HudsonThis is our spread...strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, bananas, bacon, eggs, whipped cream, cheese blintz filling, nutella, and OJ.My favorite was the cheese blintz, nutella and berries....ahhhhh!This is how the kids felt about the crepes.... This is how they felt about their Valentine chocolates....
My sweet friend offered to take our kids tonight so Tony and I can go out for our Anniversary/V-Day....she must be a glutton for punishment! Seriously though, what a gift!

I love my life! ...a sweet breakfast with my little Valentine's and a night off with my's a great holiday.

Welcome to February

Not much going on around here... Last Sunday the Steelers celebrated my birthday by winning the superbowl. YAY Pittsburgh!
Plus, I had chocolate cake...what could be better? How about the red tulips my sister's brought me? Yep, they definitely brightened up my week. I had a great birthday - lots of new friends stopped by, family and friends called, I was serenaded all morning by the three kiddos who are old enough to sing, Tony gave me some fun new toys for the kitchen, I got 33 birthday kisses from Julius,....did I mention the chocolate cake???
I LOVE February! Next weekend we'll celebrate V-Day and our 7 year anniversary. It's a busy short month - but a great one.

We started out this week with 5 healthy children for a change.... ahhh. But now 5 out of 7 of us are sick. It's just how things go. The kids were starting to get a little cabin fever so Tony brought home a little surprise for them yesterday.
He found these fun bubble wands at WalMart yesterday for $1 each...they had so much fun with them!
Great thinking Daddy!
Hope the rest of you are enjoying a beautiful February weekend....
