All Things Valentine

I'm so glad that I decided to take the day off and was able to spend the day with Caleb. We had a great day together!

In preparation for today Caleb and I made some Valentine treats yesterday. Caleb helped me mix the batter up for the cupcakes and put the sprinkles on.

Leading up to Valentine's day Caleb and I made a couple of Valentine cards and some decorations to hang up in the kitchen. I also picked up a package of window clings that he enjoyed putting on the canisters in our kitchen. This year I decided to get a little crazy and make a wreath for the front door. I love the way it turned out! I hate that I used my good Christmas wreath as a base because I really don't want to take it apart and wish I would have used one of my cheaper wreaths. Not sure what I was thinking other than this one was easy to get to.

Before starting our days deliveries today we started our morning off by going through the McDonald's drive through and picking up a couple of breakfast burritos. I decided it would be fun to pay it forward and purchased breakfast for the lady in the car behind us and had the cashier tell her Happy Valentine's Day. It was fun seeing her reaction and was fun shedding a little Valentine's Day cheer.

After McDonald's we headed out on our route of morning deliveries. First we surprised my Mom at work and took her and the ladies she works with some Valentine goodies.

Next we made a detour at a store close by my Mom's work. I always refer to stores where Caleb needs to keep his hands in his pockets and not touch things as a "mommy store" so before we went in I reminded Caleb this was a "mommy store" and he wasn't suppose to touch anything. He did a great job and told me "this is a beautiful mommy store" and wanted to know if we were going to give the lady working there a Valentine :-).

Next up on our deliveries was Nana and Papa's house. We almost missed Nana as she was pulling out of the drive as we were coming up the street but she saw us and turned around so we were able to give her and Papa their surprises. Nana and Papa surprised Caleb with a card and gave David and I a card that Caleb had helped Nana make.

After our morning deliveries we picked up a couple of free tacos from Taco Bell (I had coupons) and headed to the house to have lunch and take a break. After a little rest time (no nap though) we went to run an errand and decided to go see "Gnomeo and Juliet". Caleb seemed to really enjoy it and laughed out loud several different times. (this is the third movie he has seen at the theater)

After David got home we delivered some cupcakes to Caleb's friend across the street and then headed to Mimi's for dinner. All in all a great day and I'm so glad that I have two great Valentine's to share the day with!
