Valentines 2014

Our Valentines week was jam packed full of activities and we were in survival mode all week long with swim party, dance party, school party and company party.
We decided to celebrate as a family a couple days before with a simple little family dinner and sharing our love stories with one another.  We had pizza, cupcakes, ice cream, chocolate covered strawberries and vitamin water in goblets.  My kids are just like me and love any reason to decorate and celebrate.

Gavin gave his buddies at school these Yoda valentines with glow sticks and Star Wars fruit snacks.  I forgot to take a picture of Emma's bookmarks and candy.

Thankful once again for a boss that values family and allows me to attend all my kiddos stuff.  It worked out for me to attend Gavin's party on Thursday and Emma's on Friday. 
This is the only picture I got at Emma's party because I was helping set up, pass things out and clean up.  Always fun to see Emma with her classmates, especially Ellie and Maria.  These are her 2 best buddies at school.  Maria joined swim team this year so her and Emma love to jump in the same lane at the pool too. 
Still blown away that I have managed to attend all of Emma and Gavin's school/MDO events over the past 6 years and balance a career, such a blessing and one I will NEVER take for granted or forget.
