I love Valentine's Day! Really, I love any excuse to dress my child in holiday themed clothing and give each other special things!! Last Monday we didn't have such a great start to our week so I decided after school we definitely needed a special trip to Krispy Kreme and to Barnes and Noble to read some books and play with the lego table.
We made special Valentine's to send to our family in the mail and then for Audrey's class we did Olaf Valentine's with hugs. I said I was never going to send candy to school with my child for Valentine's day (boy the things you say you will never do) but Olaf is her absolute favorite. So, warm hugs it was. Not to mention I had already printed off and cut out color my world labels for her to take crayons to her friends. Oh well!! She was able to help me out with these by counting out her hugs for each bag. For her teachers, we did the EOS monster valentines, lotion, and some Hershey hugs as well.
On Saturday morning, we had chocolate chip pancakes and exchanged gifts. Audrey got some books, The Little Mermaid, and pajamas. She and I gave Ray a new pillow and some of his favorite chips that you have to order online because nothing says love like a bag of potato chips. They gave me a new family charm for my Pandora bracelet.

Later in the day, Audrey and I made some Valentine's cupcakes and a heart shaped cake. She acted as if the cake was her smash cake and went to town on the icing.
Saturday afternoon I met Casey for a Galentine's Starbucks latte and a pedicure. We also went all over the place looking for some gloves and snow pants for Audrey in preparation of the ice storm, but apparently stores around here are ready for Summer because all we found were bathing suits.
We took a fun family Valentine's date to get Audrey's first hair cut when I got home. She did great with the actual hair cut but she was not about to let them shampoo her hair or wear the "princess cape."
....and then we celebrated with a trip to Monterrey's for some "chips and cheese" as Audrey would say, going out to eat chips and cheese may be her favorite thing to do these days!!
