We had a very kid-centric Valentines celebration this year because, well, we have four of them :) I have lots of pics to share but first I have to show you this beautiful sign my mom made and sent in the mail! I was so surprised! It is for Valentines of course but it's so beautiful that I'm finding a place to make it a permanent part of our decor. After all, "these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
And of course this was Olli's first Valentines!!!
My little lover boy came home from a fun day in kindergarten and with the biggest smile said, "mommy, which hand?!?" I picked a hand and then he popped both out with a Valentine in one and a dandelion in the other.
Nana B also sent Valentines shirts and books for the babies. She made the robots herself. Aren't they adorable? It's almost impossible to get a pic of Milo so I was able to capture this one on the move ;)
Speaking of Milo, he was so sick for 5 whole weeks! FINALLY in February we made our last walk home from the doctor and he's been pretty healthy since minus a pesky little cold. My little Linus doesn't go anywhere without his blanky :)
We made Valentines this year. Luca had "love bugs" and Ella had bubbles!
Luca wore his Valentine shirt like 4 days in a row. He's obsessed with it! He said, "mama I want to call Nana on the computer to fank her for my wobot shirt." Such a sweetie this boy!
Getting dressed for Valentine parties at school!
My many attempts to get a picture of them in their matching shirts. Boys!
And then here are my little sweethearts!
This year, Mike took Ella on a date and I took the boys on a date. The boys and I went to the Pacific Science Center for a day of CRAZY fun. Serious fun and seriously crazy! They were so mesmerized and gone are the days where Milo sits in a stroller. They both ran opposite directions the whole time but I managed to make it home with everybody!
The bubbles were probably their favorite thing there...
Our Wilson's joined us so it was a Realson Family Valentine Date :) Again...our best attempt to get a bunch of boy babies to take a pic :)
These are the kind of pictures you get when men are in charge...
We all grabbed lunch afterwards at the armory and then we called it a Valentines Day!
