Valentine's Day 2017

Our Valentine's day started off great!  I woke up to beautiful flowers and earrings from hubby and the girls were all smiles and ready to celebrate the day.




All their goodies set out and ready to take to school


Valentine's day lunches were made


and a few love day pictures taken before the school day




Brooklyn asked "Mommy, can I pose?"



When the girls got into the car they spotted a little Macy's box that daddy had surprised them with




They each got a pretty necklace he had picked out.  I didn't even know he had bought them anything so I was surprised as well.   They were very happy and I think they have the best daddy ever!


After I dropped off the girls at school I had a doctors appointment to get to and then I came home, ate some lunch before heading back to the school to help out with all their Valentine's day festivities.  This is where our day took a little turn.


I could tell something was wrong with Brooklyn and when I asked her what was wrong she just started crying and said her head and tummy hurt.  I took her outside and calmed her down, she felt very warm but I wasn't sure if it was because she had just come in from lunch and it was hot so I asked her if she wanted to go home and she said no.  I told her to go back to the class and drink all her water to cool her off and that's exactly what she did.   She finished decorating her cookies and after her water was all gone I felt her again and she definitely had a fever so I took her to the office for confirmation and then we headed back to her class to gather her things.  She was so upset that she was going home and that she was going to miss the rest of the day but she was just miserable.


I gave her some medicine which definitely helped but she still wasn't herself.


While waiting for Kayla to get out of class Brooklyn took a good nap which really helped because she felt a lot better after.


 When Kayla got home she was excited to tell us all about her day and I was a little bummed I missed being there while it all happened.   Her best friend gave her a cute stuffed animal, a box of chocolates and a sweet best friends bracelet.


She was so excited about her gifts.


and then the girls dumped out all their Valentines and compared all their loot


We cuddled on the couch and read through all our Valentine books together



and then it was time to make dinner






When daddy got home the girls opened their gifts






They loved their new tablet covers


After dinner they added the sprinkles to the heart shaped cake


how many sprinkles can fit on a cake?



After all of the sprinkles were on we cut each a piece and then it was showers, pajamas and Charlie Brown Valentine before bed.   Even though our day took a little turn and Brooklyn came home sick we still ended up having a great day.  My favorite part was reading the Valentine books together with both of my girls!  I'm pretty sure I will not always have two little girls who want to cuddle on the couch and listen to their mom read picture books to them.

Father/Daughter Laua Dance

The girls had their father/daughter dance on Friday night and this year the theme was a Laua.  



They were both excited for the dance especially Brooklyn.  She gets so gitty over things that include getting dressed up or parties for her.


Daddy giving his girls some flowers



Just about ready


But then I remembered I had these cute gold "tattoo" armbands that they like and the girls wanted them on, now they are ready!


Our PTA is amazing and created this cute photo spot at the dance.  Daddy took lots of pictures for me since I decided to enjoy the evening at home instead of help out this year.  


Brooklyn hung out with her daddy all night


while Kayla went back and forth hanging out with friends but still dancing with daddy here and there.


They have a blast every year and I'm so thankful they go to such a great school that does these sorts of activities for the kids.


After the dance was over daddy took them to get some yogurt which was the perfect way to wrap up their daddy/daughter date!
