L.O.V.E.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Valentine's candy sure has come a long way.  I didn't even buy one bag of those gross Necco conversation hearts.  We upgraded to SweetTart hearts.  Dejavu.  Did I talk about this last year?  I swear I only have gone off on Easter candy before.  


Nerds are the perfect candy for 10 month olds!  Sorry guys, just had to do it.  Sometimes you need a few minutes to do your own thing, and this buys me the time I need.  For any of you disgusted at my early introduction to sweets in baby Dylan's diet, take comfort in knowing that most of those little nerdies get stuck forever in between his fingers.  And the cookies and cake that he gets bites of here and there?  Nothing compared to how many jars of baby food he partakes of in one day.  He's definitely the healthiest eater in the house.  



Sam turned 3 a few weeks ago.  He had an ear infection on his birthday that made him downright miserable so we celebrated the next day as well.  Sam is a mother's dream.  He likes to cuddle, he tells me I'm his best friend and that he misses me all the time.  


For V-day we got upgraded cell phones.  They were used from Russell's co-workers and it took a lot of trading/buying/reselling/under-the-table deal-making until we had two phones that would work with our plan, but we are now good to go!  The kids got their book and candy.  
See below: 
Anika's book and plate sans a bit of candy, Russell's book- I believe in giving clear messages to people in my life if they want to remain so- (actually this was on his amazon wish list so go check it out), and my phone.  What's for dinner?  Spinach artichoke dip for me, I'm not thinkin' the kids are going to be that hungry from their candy binge, and Russell is working late.  Next coloring pages we'll be printing out starting tomorrow for the next 2 1/2 months: Easter!

Happy birthday Sam. If you ever speak to me I am sure you would tell me how awesome your mommy is. I remember when Valentine's didn't come with candy at all and we worried over the message. Now my kids just go for the candy and don't even read the card. How awful. Yearning for days gone by. Glad your day was great.

ear infections are miserable - H is just suffering through her very first one... shockingly we made it nearly 9 years without any?!?!

I love the book title. I'll have to look it up. Is your cell phone number the same? Congrats on your new phone. Derek got a note. I got a computer. That's fair right? Dan's absolute favorite thing about Valentine's Day has been the candy. He loves it a lot. Thanks for posting!

Love it!! The kiddos are so cute. Can't wait for Easter and the chocolate eggs :)

It's pretty much just assumed that whatever Holiday it is you will make reference to the seasonal candy...
And we all know that every one of your kids is weaned straight from milk to cookies and brownies, but we aren't judging you. As long as they grow up pretty, what does it matter?
I bet Sammy would love a back scratch from me right now.

Lucky for you blogger went down in the middle of my snarky comment. It was a good one too--something about you always feeding your babies treats and you always talking about seasonal candy...
What was your Love acronym, btw?

An ear infection for his birthday?! that is just not right!

Valentines Day surprises are fun.

I hope you enjoy your upgraded phones.

Guess I better put that book on my list.
I love V-day candy--especially the Necco conversation hearts.
yesterday I scored BIG time at the after holiday sale--99 cents for the big bags of peanut M&M's, Reese's,Hershey's Hugs and kisses --yeah baby!
