A Happy Heart Day

We celebrated Valentine's Day on Sunday just because it was a little easier. Big Daddy bought Ellie a train track (with Thomas & Mavis) and we picked out Pre-K/K level reading books for Maggie. Both girls received Cinderella Pez dispensers for their sweet treat. Ellie loves her train track and Maggie really enjoys having books where she can easily read nearly all of the words on a page. Big Daddy and the girls gave me new perfume (!!!) and a sweet card. We didn't get Big Daddy anything, which is just the way he likes it.

Sunday evening was "Spice Up Your Marriage Date Night" at Church. They provided free dinner and childcare for the children (so we were all over that) and the parents had finger foods and educational entertainment. The church Family Life Center was full and I think everyone had a great time. We had fun and found out that we're not as different from other couples as we may have thought.

For Valentine's Day, we went to a local burger place where our family of four had diner for $12. After that we went to Lowe's for hooks to help organize the garage. Maggie and Ellie looked at light fixtures, riding mowers, washer and dryers and the ever popular toilets. Big Daddy bought me a level and we picked up hooks for the garage. After we put the kids to bed, we had homemade angel food cake with fresh strawberries and Big Daddy said it was "the best Valentine's ever".

very sweet. :) It's the best day ever if everyone involved thinks so! So no matter what you do on a holiday, if it's what fits your family, then it's perfect. :) Where are pics of Ellie playing with her train, and a video of Maggie reading?!!
