Valentine's Day


For Valentine's Day this year Porter and I made play-do for all of his preschool friends and shaped them into hearts. Porter and Carter had so much fun making the dough and I was really proud of myself because it was probably the first time I've ever really let them do a lot of the work. Porter was really excited to give his friends the Valentines that he made. After preschool I asked Porter if he thought his friends liked the play-do and he said "Yeah, I thinked they liked it cause they all said 'Porter-sanks so much for this really cool play-do!'" I'm not exactly sure if this is how it really happened but it was funny to hear him say it anyway.
Sam took me to Disneyland during the day and we had so much fun. We've been wanting to go for awhile, just the two of us, and it was as much fun as we hoped it would be. We got to go on rides that we haven't been on in over five years and we managed to escape Disnelyand without going on The Buzz Ride and Dumbo. What a happy day!!!
After we picked up the boys we all went grocery shopping together for the yummy dinner that Sam was to make for us. He made Filet Mignon, Lobster Tail, Spinach Salad with avocado and strawberries and yummy honey-orange dressing, and asparagus. This meal had special meaning because he made one similar for me for our first Valentines Day. He is such an awesome cook! For dessert I made chocolate dipped strawberries and pretzels and the boys thought those were a real treat. Oh, and they also loved smashing the lobsters with the mallet.
All in all I think that this Valentines day was fun for our whole family and was
just what I was hoping for!

Are you kidding me?? Who knew that Sam had such skills? What an amazing meal! I love it when my man cooks for me. . .

The play-doh idea is so creative. I'm sure the kids went crazy for it.

BTW--Thanks again for such a fun night. Nothing like a little Ultimate Fighting with a blow horn to end the evening. It really doesn't get much better than that.
