Why Sunday was a perfect day for Valentines...

For moms that always seem to need an extra day or so to get it all in, having a holiday on a Sunday is fantastic! I usually have grand plans but end up running out of steam or not being prepared enough to pull it off in a day. So that is why this weekend was so great. It let us spread out the love over 4 days and we were able to do the things we wanted to do. We started out celebrating on Friday with some beautiful flowers being delivered to our door "from the boys" to Eva and I, and we had them all weekend to enjoy. Friday night we had a valentines couple's dinner for our recipe group and Saturday we spent relaxing, doing cookies, eating cookies, and then Kerry and I had a sitter that night while we went out for dinner and had a couples massage. Bien. By Sunday, we were going strong, so we had heart shaped muffins for breakfast and a Valentines dinner of lemon garlic tilapia, asparagus, and a red smoothie-punch- a- majigger that we rigged together.
Monday was a holiday with kids out of school, so there was no Sunday evening pressure to pull everything together for Monday morning and we watched movies and vegged. Monday I took the kids up skiing and had a great day with them, while Becks and Kerry had their own day together looking at golf clubs and going to McDonalds.
The whole weekend was just fun, and I loved that it was spread out and unchaotic feeling. That is the hardest part sometimes - to actually relax and enjoy it for what it is.
Here are some pictures of the kids and their creations.

Happy Valentines Day!
