love day

So after my anniversary, valentine's day, a chocolate chip cookie dough craving day, and Castles and Coasters (blog soon to come), I was really afraid of what my weigh in would be today! I was happy and relieved that I only gained one pound. So I'm only down 10 for the year, but that's better than gaining 10, yes?

We opened all our fun valentines to each other last Friday. It was fun to see our kids' personalities come thru in the sweet messages they wrote. Sean made up a nickname for everybody. Cameron somehow incorporated basketball into each message. Ethan drew "lots of O's". All of these were cards I'd made or received for V-day, so Danny was sweet enough to go out an buy a nice one for me, rather than give me a card I made myself. Ha.

Then we went to Peter Piper Pizza for some yummy eats and fun games! Can I say this: pizza, goooood. Games/tokens/tickets/prizes, ripoff!!! They played somewhere 'round 30-40 tokens, got around 150 tickets and ended up with three pieces of candy. I kept telling them, "if you want this toy, let's save up your money and just go buy one at wal-mart, rather than waste all this time and money on junk stuff at the prize booth." Hard to explain to little guys, isn't it?

You are doing so good! Love the cards, so sweet. I agree on the Peter Piper. My kids always have their birthday parties there at my husband's request. I can't stand the games. James is addicted!!
