Party Day!!

Well, today was the big Valentine's party at Christian's school. Remember? With the 2 nutty moms that had everything planned?!?! *rolling eyes*'s how it went down. First off, the other 2 moms got their kids to school 15-20 minutes late, then they both LEFT the school to go home and come back before the party started!! (it was about an hour and typically, the party parents stay for the beginning of class and start to set up about 1/2 hour early) I got to stay and see how Christian's "normal" school day begins and it was awesome!! The kids were all excited that "Christian's mommy" was there and kept playing around with me and talking to me. TOO CUTE!!! :) The other moms showed up about 5 minutes before the party was supposed to start and THEN they didn't bring all the stuff they were supposed to!!! We were each supposed to bring 4 shoe boxes covered in white paper so the kids could decorate them and use them for their Valentines...I brought mine...1 mom brought 3...and the other mom brought ZERO!!! We didn't have enough for all the kids in the class!!! *yes...eyes popping out of my head in disbelief right now* We actually had to empty and cover a tissue box in order to have enough. The teachers didn't get one and 2 of the kids didn't show up...and thank goodness or we STILL wouldn't have had enough!!! And did I mention that the shoeboxes were THEIR idea in the first place?!?! I had no friggin' input when they brought THAT up at the meeting the other day!! Aye yi yi..... *rolling my eyes YET again*

Anyways, the party was awesome! Christian was so, SO thrilled that I got to stay at school with him! He wore his cute little "Heartbreaker" shirt and asked me to spray some of Jarrett's cologne on him before we left this morning...I think he was ready to pick up some chicks!!! LOL... That's my little stud! ;)

Our Valentine's Day
Well, like I told you yesterday, we don't really celebrate Valentine's day with each other. Jarrett picked up food on the way home yesterday and also grabbed 2 little bouquets of flowers for each of the kiddos to give to me. Oh my gosh...they looked TOO cute walking across the kitchen floor saying "Happy Valentine's Day, Momma...we love you!". So adorable!! We've had snow and ice here the last few days, so we took the kids outside to play in the snow and ride their sleds down the tiny hill in our backyard. They had a blast and so did we!

I wanted to post some pics, but blogger is not letting me yet again today!! ARGH...Anyways, I can't get those darn kids to pose for pics anymore!!! LOL... guess I take too many pictures!!! Anyways, after the kids went to sleep, Jarrett and I snuggled on the couch and watched You, Me & Dupree. Cute movie...not as great as I expected, but still not a waste of time to watch!

That's it!
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and got all you deserved!! :) Thanks for all the comments on the template freebie...glad you all liked it! See you tomorrow! {{HUGS}}
