I think I did it...

I think I successfully made this holiday a good one for Ashley (and Audrey!).
  • A new Valentine's Day shirt arrived in the mail yesterday, and she loves it
  • Hearts sprinkled on her bedroom floor for when she woke up
  • Balloons, including the Princess one she begged for in the Dollar Store
  • Heart shaped donuts from Krispy Kreme (and omigod, are they yummy...)
  • New pjs to wear tonight

I was going to attempt to make heart shaped pizzas for dinner tonight, but I think it will just be pizza. I was up until 11:30pm trying to convince Audrey to go to sleep and doing all the Valentine's day stuff. And then Audrey was up a few times after that. She obviously is unaware that Ray and I need some sleep.

And Ray got me a yummy box of chocolates that I had to restrain myself from devouring the whole box. He has been slammed with working so much this past week (the real estate market here is good), and because he is such a good husband, he has been trying to at least eat dinner with us and work around some scheduling conflicts I have. I couldn't ask for a better husband.

Check tomorrow for pictures of the festivities!

Sounds like you did do a wonderful job in making Valentines Day special for your girls. I tried to make it special for my boys too, and I think I was successful!!

And man, I'm bummed that we don't have a Krispy Kreme close by because I would totally wreck my diet for one of those donuts!

We are totally having heart shaped pizza tonight for dinner...

Happy Valentines Day!

Thanks for keeping track of Riley.

Those donuts look yummy - I could eat one (or ten) of those!

Sounds like a great holiday - I really need to get more creative!

What a terrific job you did for the girls on Valentine's Day!!! I'm a HUGE Holiday Person! I love to make a big deal out of each and every holiday...if you go to my blog and scroll down...you'll see about my V-Day celebration. Of course, things are mighty different after my daughter moved out. I miss the little things we used to do together for holidays....I mean we still do things that are "special", but not quite the same as when she was small. She's 22 now, but she'll always be my little girl!
