I'm proud to say we always make it to church on time when I am all on my own because Tim has to work. It seems that when Tim is home I guess I don't plan as well and although I have someone to help we are always in a much bigger rush to get out the door. Why is that? Anyway... this week we even had time to snag a few pictures. These three kiddos are so sweet and although it isn't always easy I am so thankful I am their mama!
Henry is into EVERYTHING! He usually pulls out several bottles of lotion, face wash, hairspray etc. from my bathroom cupboards while I can finish drying my hair and doing my make up. Today he made himself right at home inside! I love this silly boy!
Kate has always loved Valentine's Day. It's her favorite holiday! This year was no different. The anticipation and joy of picking out and making valentines for our loved ones is just so fun! We enjoyed a lot of Valentine crafts throughout the weeks leading up to the big day and I love surprising the girls each more with a fun treat/little gift in their V-Day boxes each day.
Poor Henry...I swore I had a red and white shirt for him to wear. Oh well. He looks darling anyway. These pictures were from our impromptu 5 minute photo shoot before we had to take Kate to school.
My friend Sydney decided to treat ourselves to a little Cafe Rio for lunch to celebrate heart day. Her husband is a podiatry resident and has long hours too. I'm bummed we didn't get a picture of our crew. I then dropped Millie and Henry off at another friends and got to go to Kate's Valentine party at school. It is always such a highlight to get into her classroom. I wish I got to go more frequently... Anyway...it's always so much to see her eyes light up when she sees me and I love the huge hug I always get. I love these special times we have together! Kate was thrilled with her 20 valentine cards from her classmates and enjoyed lining them all up. Kate insisted on giving Moana Valentine cards and Ring Pops!

Wednesday was "Literacy Night" at Kate's school in conjunction with the annual book fair. I had planned to take the kids alone like I do all the time but Tim surprisingly got done super early and met us there at 4:30pm. It was the best surprise! Kate and Millie both got to pick a book and then they had several activities/crafts set up in multiple classrooms. We had a lot of fun until Henry finally had had enough. It was nice though I was then able to take him home and get him ready for bed while Tim and the girls stayed and had some special time together.

|Henry's favorite thing right now. He wants to walk! So whenever he can find a chair or stool to push around he is a happy boy!|
