I was spoiled this Valentine's Day. My husband bought me the math program I wanted for the kids for Valentine's Day. I was so excited about it. He also used blog2print to get the first year of my blog put into book form. We have really enjoyed reading it this past week. In addition, my parents gave me flowers and a valance for my sitting room window. Aren't the flowers pretty?
We decided to buy the kids a gift each this year. We are trying to reduce stuff coming into our home on a regular basis. Thus, we decided to take advantage of the holiday as a reason to add a few things we'd been wanting in the household. When they get the "wanties", I just say they have to wait for the next holiday.
The kids were delighted with their gifts. We are now in a Waltons marathon. I am so pleased that my children love "The Waltons".
We were so happy to take a break from our studies and go to an ice cream social at a friend's home.
The kids and I were also happy to do two charities this week. We made cat toys out of socks, cat nip and stuffing for the Humane Society. We also made about 70 Valentine's cards for the clients of Meals on Wheels.
For most people Valentine's Day involves lots of sweets. With our special needs diet, most treats are impossible, so I made a special breakfast. My kids thought these apples were funny and yummy.
We managed to get everyone to the dentist this month. The oldest had a cavity, but everyone else had great checkups. Little Red Ridinghood loved changing from her pediatric dentist to my dentist. We made the switch because my dentist is much cheaper, and I felt like she was old enough to handle a cleaning without me by her side. She did great.
