Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day was Grey's due date, but we had already had him with us for 12 days by then.  Long enough for the adrenaline to have worn off and the sleep deprivation to have kicked in:)  He's definitely worth the lack of sleep, though!
Somehow I managed to get all of the supplies for Hunter's Valentine's party at school and make it up there to work it with the other home room moms.  We played Valentine Bingo with conversation hearts and had a stacking game with the same candy.  Then they decorated cookies, and after they finished eating them, they listened to a Valentine story...

Since Grey's been born, some days are no make up days...
I also made these cute s'mores valentines for all the kids.  And I really liked the valentines that Hunter and Char gave out this year (the blowing you kisses ones on pinterest...with bubbles and Hershey's kisses).  Pictures haven't been on the top of my priority list lately, so I didn't get a photo of either.  Nor did  I get one of the kids in their cute Valentine shirts from Grandee and Poppy which makes me sad.  You can kind of see Hunter's in the pictures above.  It says I love Candy.  He told me that all of his friends were reading it all day:)  Charlotte's had her name and hearts on it (in pink jewels).  And Grey had a Dr. Love one that Aunt Katie bought for him.

The night that I had my first bleeding episode with Grey, I started putting these hearts on Hunter's and Charlotte's doors.  There were some missed nights while we were in the hospital, but we made up for it and got all 14 hears on their doors by the time Valentine's Day arrived.  Here are Hunter's...
