Valentine's Day Fun

We had another full weekend with friends and family. On Saturday morning, Lily arrived to spend some quality time with her cousins. How cute is this kid? She is SO good about letting Katie dress her in whatever adorable outfits she likes. Lily is walking like a pro and has a great time chasing after Mairead and the boys. It is really fun to watch them all play together. On Saturday night, Nana and Grampy watched all four kids so that we could enjoy dinner out with Katie and her friends to celebrate Katie's 30th birthday again (she is so great that we had to celebrate her twice!).

On Sunday, we took the kids to the Winter Party hosted by the Mothers of Multiples group to which I belong. The kids had a great time running around and playing with the other kids and the fun toys. Jack made friends with a couple of 4 and 5 year old blonde girls... maybe he is going to be a heartbreaker some day.
Oh, Ben...



Today, we had a lot of fun celebrating Valentine's Day. I had all kinds of plans last week about making Valentines for family members and mailing them out in time for the holiday, but with all that went on with Mairead it just didn't get done. Sorry, everyone... maybe next year!
There was a little Valentine's Day party at playgroup complete with heart shaped sugar cookies (which none of my kids would eat- they don't know what they are missing) and Valentine's crafts. I love Mondays because the kids have a great time at this group and then the boys take great naps!
For dinner, we had our own little Valentine's Day party with a special table, decorations, and chocolate chip pancakes. The kids opened the cards that Grandma and Grandpa and Rachael sent and Nana brought home some chocolate hearts. Even though the plans I had didn't come to fruition, I wanted to make sure to celebrate in some way. Every day we have with these kids is precious- I know that now even more than I did a week ago- so these little celebrations are important... and adorable.

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Valentines Day and that we all remember to celebrate the ones we love!
