Our Happy HEART Day

I thought I would post a little about our Valentine's Day yesterday.

Hollace had a great time making her Valentines box and Valentines over the weekend.

Rhett was a little less enthused about the project, but he did well and I thought they turned out pretty cute! Hollace's are on the left and Rhett's on the right. The box. Hollace loves to do little creative projects like this.

Of course Hollace had school and the boys and I went to MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) at the church. Our meeting just happened to fall on Valentine's Day this year.
I wanted to get a quick picture of my little Valentines before we left, but this is what I ended up with. Apparently it was too sunny on the porch and I didn't get a decent picture, but immediately after I took this one Rhett started a mini tantrum about not wanting to take pictures and the sun hurting his eyes and Thad was bolting for the street. I decided the photo shoot was over.
I did decide to include the pic, because not only do these sweet boys make my heart happy, but so does the SUNSHINE that ruined our photo shoot! We have missed 14-Yes 14!!! days of school already this year due to weather (and we have not had NEAR the snow that you all in the midwest have had. If we got that kind of snow we would be out of school until April!)
2 MOPS meetings have been cancelled this winter and numerous days of Mother's Day Out. I was so happy to be out in the sunshine and going somewhere this day!!!
That evening we went and registered Rhett for his first season of soccer. He is very excited. Then we went to Q'doba to pick up some dinner. We had planned on going here anyway, then a friend told us they were having a buy-one-get-one-free-entree deal. Sweet! We love Q'Doba and LOVE a free meal! The only catch was you had to KISS your sweetie at checkout to get the deal. I informed Hollace in the car that she would have to kiss Rhett on the cheek when we paid. Oh my--that SERIOUSLY stressed the girl out. She was so nervous/embarrassed/grossed out at the thought of kissing her brother in the restaurant. It was really funny. In line she said "Rhett, do you want to practice?" He said "Sure!" and puckered up. She would lean in toward his cheek then throw her mouth over her lips and say "NO, I just can't DO it!". DRAMA!!!
She did finally do it at the check-out line. I may have had to shove her face into Rhett's a little- but hey, a free meal is a free meal-right???
Hope you all had a terrific Valentine's Day with the ones you LOVE!
