Happy Valentines Day

It might be a Hallmark-created, cheesy, commercial holiday, but I think a day devoted to celebrating love cannot be all bad.  I, for one, am celebrating an embarrassment of riches this year when it comes to love: an incredible husband (who also happens to be a fantastic friend and a rockstar dad), two cuddly kids, a beautiful and caring sister, great parents and parents-in-law, and the most generous sisters-in-law (and brothers-in-law and nieces and nephew) a girl could ask for.

It’s the first year that Caroline has really been able to participate in Valentines Day, and it has been fun telling her about it this week as we prepared Valentine cards for her class.  Basically we just told her, “It’s a day to celebrate all the love we have in our lives: our friends and our family!”  Her school calls it “Friendship Day.”  When I dropped her off this morning, I spotted MANY treats left by generous parents, as well as tons of cute kiddos dressed in red.  And as soon as we walked in the classroom, her best friend Trevor ran over and shouted, “Caroline!  I brought cookies for you today!”  She’s going to have a blast – I wish I could be a fly on the wall in her classroom today!

I did manage to snap a few photos of the kids this morning before Caroline was off to school (and a few of Carter in his heart-breaker t-shirt yesterday).  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
