A Family-Filled Weekend

Happy Tuesday!

We enjoyed a three day weekend since my hubby was off yesterday. I love when he gets an extra day off work and so do the girls! We all went out to a casual restaurant- which always goes surprisingly well- ran some errands -always FUN!- went to church Sunday, and just hung out. It's nice to do that with family, isn't it?

In my last post, I shared a cute Valentine's project that I completed with our oldest. 
It turned out well and was so fun to complete that we made some more and put them around the house.
Gotta love crafts that toddlers can do with you and have fun with at the same time!

We also worked on a Valentine's Day card for my hubby.
I'm not one for store-bought cards...personally, I think they are over-priced and such.
But I love making cards every now and then for family and friends and so we did that for Valentine's day this year.

My hubby also bought a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie cake for  me all of us.

I could have eaten the whole thing by myself, but thankfully did not.
It was tempting though.
The cake also came with 2 heart rings that our daughters loved. 
Jewelry + Cake = one happy girl (well, make that 3 happy girls).

And I also got some lovely flowers to decorate our dining room with.
He's a keeper!!! :)

I'm not one for celebrating some of these holidays with cards and gifts (non-sentimental some may say, eh?). 
BUT, I will take chocolate and flowers any day and the hubs knows this!

Plus, flowers make anything look beautiful. They really lighten up any room or space.

And now I will leave you with these sweet pictures of our oldest...

They speak for themselves...

The flash was a bit too much for her here. ;)

Do you think she really enjoyed the cake and icing?
Maybe so.

Happy Tuesday everyone.
Thanks for stopping by!
