Valentine's day

I love Valentine's day! I love the cute t-shirts for my boys, the sweet cards, the heart shaped candy, the flowers, the special dinners... I am a sucker for all of it. I like the idea that there is a day dedicated to love. I do agree that we should be showing our love for each other everyday but why not make one day just a little extra special?

I started my day making heart shaped sandwiches, then dropped two of my Valentine's at elementary school and one at preschool. I had to miss Colton's party because it was at the exact time as Carter's drop off twenty minutes away--I can't be in two places at once not matter how much I want to or how hard I try. =(
I ran a few errands and then headed back to Cooper's party at school where I served Root Beer floats. Carter's party is just for the kiddos because they don't want a bunch of sad three year olds when the parents have to leave.

When the boys got home from school, I gave them their Valentine gifts. Colton got a few Ben 10 toys, Cooper a laser gun and Pokemon cards and Carter got some Ninja Turtle toys. They were happy!
My hubby got home early and he and the big boys played some baseball. I was pushing Carter on the swing. Then Cody and the boys jumped on the trampoline while I started some dinner. I got the sides done and my hubby grilled some special steaks he bought us. Then my hubby sent me to the other room and told me not to come out until they came to get me. About 15 minutes later, these handsome waiters came and asked me to join them for dinner.
My hubby had finished dinner and the boys helped him set the table complete with candlelight. He had the boys get their coats ties, vest and boots on. They were so cute offering to serve me and pulling out my chair. It was precious and they are learning to be wonderful little gentlemen! They have a great example. We had a delicious steak dinner and then some chocolate dipped strawberries. 
Such a sweet day! Love my 4 Valentines!!!!! 

Hope you all had a day love-filled day!!!
