~happy~valentine's~day~

roses from my valentine
darek and i went to dinner at the cheesecake factory last night to to be all lovely dovey valentinesy
sadly we got no photo documentation of our lovey dovey-ness, so you'll just have to take my word for it
but the roses made the cut

Photobucket

this little valentine of mine wore her new ballerina outfit that our friend crocheted just for her
thank you charlotte!! it's so adorable!

Photobucket

pointing her toes just like a good ballerina should

i think one of the most rewarding parts of motherhood is seeing how much each of your kids love each other
both my boys have a special love for their baby sister
atticus couldn't stay away while i took pictures of her today
this is probably my favorite of the whole batch

Photobucket

making googly eyes at each other

Photobucket

as usual, it's impossible to get all three looking and smiling
but at least it's easy to get them all looking cute

Photobucket

beck also adores his baby sister
he talks to her and about her all day long
at the gym he brings other kids over by the hand to show them his sister
and of course he's all about the love pats and full body wrestling-esque hugs
he's even been known to share his popcorn with her (luckily atticus saw beck put popcorn in
K's mouth and told darek!) as well as share his kitty and coveted batman toys with her
that, my friends, is the very definition of true love!

Photobucket

i told atticus he could pick out a red shirt at the store to wear to his class v-day party
it should surprise no one that this is what he chose

Photobucket

and since the boys are all super hero worship lately
they got batman buckets of v-day treats for valentine's day

Photobucket

beck inspecting the goods

Photobucket

dumping them out

Photobucket

then chowing down

Photobucket

i didn't have time for any fanciness this v-day (unless you call pink waffles for breakfast fancy, of course)
so thank you pintrest for these free printables as easy peasy valentines for atticus' class

Photobucket

reading his valentines from his classmates

Photobucket

and displaying the valentine he made for us
and of course the candy bar he was asking me to open while i took the picture

Photobucket

still asking...

Photobucket

the spongebob fun dips were the biggest hit

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

it took a lot of effort to convince beck to take those suckers out of his mouth to eat his lunch

Photobucket

i hope you all had a very lovey dovey valentines day!!
