I hope you had a great Valentine's weekend! I say weekend because we celebrated all weekend long!
First, I wanted to share the wonderful photos that my friend Joy of Joyful Photography took a couple of weeks ago. We met a the park and Joy was so sweet to ask us to come to take theses pics!
Love my little girl!
Love all these kiddos and their mommas!
Fun group photo!! I treasure these photos!
Back to the weekend, Friday morning, I took Mallory to school to help her take all her items for her party. Before we left, I wanted to get a photo of Mallory and I in our Fancy Free shirts. This is the first time I've ever bought matching anything but I couldn't pass up these. My shirt is so comfortable too! I told her I would pose like she always does.
Mallory took her castle to school as well as her valentines to give and the Rice Krispie treats
All the girls with their boxes. When we got home, Mallory dumped all the valentines out on the table and went through them all.
I love that they made something to give to the parents. Mallory couldn't wait to show it to me
Saturday morning, Brian headed out to take our nephew Cade to his basketball games. While he was gone, I set out his cards and treat and Mallory's Valentine's gift on the table.
My sweet girl asked where my present was and I said I didn't have one yet because Daddy wasn't home yet. Next thing I knew, she had gone and gotten some gift bags, filled them with her toys and put them on the table for me. I was in our room cleaning and she told me to come to the table. She told me to open the presents. I'm not going to lie, I almost cried. It was one of the sweetest moments ever and I kept hugging Mallory and telling her thank you. She had the biggest smile on her face and was so happy to give me the presents. Love her!
I kept telling Mallory that she could open her present when Daddy got home so she kept asking when was getting home. To distract her, I put her in the bath and then finally he came home.
She ran and got on the table to give Brian his cards from us
I opened my card from Brian (he and I just give each other cards for Valentine's Day) and then Mallory opened hers.
Last time we were at Wal Mart, Mallory saw some Minnie Mouse house slippers and she's been asking for them ever since. We went on Friday and I tried to sneak them in the buggy but I can't slip things past her like I used to so she saw me grab them. I knew she would want to wear them Friday night so I let her and while she wasn't looking on Saturday, I grabbed them and put them in her bag since they were her present :)
Papa and Nana stopped by to drop off a gift for Mallory. Just them being there is present enough for Mallory but she loved the puzzle, coloring book, paint, etc... that she got from them!
Pictures with our Valentine
I did tell Brian that I hated we didn't get one of me and him but that's ok!
Saturday afternoon, we headed to see our nephew Jensen who got to go home from the NICU on Thursday! I was so excited to get to hold him! He is doing great and Mallory was just so thrilled to get to see and play with Eva!
Sunday night, Brian and Mallory went to the Princess and Papa ball at the Hilton Harbor. They had a great time and I will definitely have more pics in a separate post!
Hoping your weekend was filled with love just as ours was!
