Weekly Update 2-6 through 2-13-11

It's been a busy week with LOTS of fun Valentine activities. I'm about valentined out...okay maybe not I'm still really excited about tomorrow and things we have planned. I usually do my Laundry on Monday's and I've been working on it today just so we can do everything valentines!

Besides things I have posted below with pictures, Thursday night was a date night for our Relief Society Activity. I was very grateful for the opportunity to go somewhere with my hubby and not have to worry about hiring or paying for a sitter!

Friday night Duck was supposed to be on a snowcave campout with the scouts but due to major tooth pain and issues (he is in need of a root canal) he opted to stay home. In his absence I was supposed to work on Savannah's bumper Pad for her crib (WAY long over due) but instead we all went Swimming Friday night! It was a fun family night.

Saturday was going to be busy and somehow I had to fit in grocery shopping so crazy me was at wally's at 5 am getting groceries before we had to be at a meeting at the church at 8. I was tired. REALLY tired...the rest of the day. But I somehow managed to skip a nap and even stay up for our date night until 11 pm. Now today I'm tired again. Go figure.

I'm sure there is so much more I could go on about, but I know what you all want to see...the pictures. So first...

HAPPY VALENTINES!

I guess today is close enough (and all the family should have gotten their valentines by now) so here are the rest of the pictures from our Valentines shoot a couple of weeks ago!

Be fore warned....there is LOTS of red!

This was Savannah's valentine. We attached a little baggie with Swedish Fish.

Ya know those cute photo valentines where the kid is holding a sucker? We did those this year, but I'm too lazy to take a photo of the actual valentine for you...so you get to imagine what it looks like with his hand holding a sucker in it! SHE wasn't too lazy to take a picture so you can peek at hers. But you can take my word for it, they turned out cute!

Maliyah was being funny. Usually I just tell tell the kids about where I want them and let them do the rest. Maliyah is the best at this. This time she gave me a few smiles then says 'wait!' I want to smile with my mouth open so you can see my missing tooth!" I had to laugh!
