Valentine's Day

The day before Valentine's day, I was running around crazy getting ready for a combined Young Men/ Young Women activity that I was in charge of. We were also leaving for our 10 day trip the next day, and Noah was scheduled to get tubes just a few hours before our flight! Stressful, but still fun!

I'm such a sucker for getting this kid balloons anytime we go to the grocery/dollar store. He loves them. 

After about 45 minutes of shopping, this kid is just DONE. Luckily this trip to the Dollar store was mayyybe 10 minutes. But the Wal Mart spree beforehand was 30 minutes too long for him. He's his father's son when it comes to shopping. 

One of the "Minute to Win It" games I planned that night....creepy, no? We were all crying from laughing so hard at how dumb we all looked. We had to wear panty hose, put tennis balls in the feet, and then knock down a row of empty water bottles. I wish I had a picture of all of us together! I love my girls.

A favorite. 
That night, I couldn't wait any longer for Mark to open his Valentine's present, so we went ahead and opened it a little early.

Wii have been wanting new fun, family activities that we can do indoors, and after debating for awhile (I'm super anti-video games over here) I gave in. I justify this purchase because it's more active than sitting and playing video games. Plus, for a YW activity we did "Just Dance" and it was love-at-first-dance. I need to buy that game soon!

The next day was crazy. We had to be at the outpatient surgical center at 6:30 am. Luckily with tubes, it's like a 2 hour ordeal altogether (prep, surgery, recovery) so we were out of there by about 9. The doctor encouraged us to get the tubes before our trip and promised he'd be fine for the flight. It was tough but I trusted him! Luckily everything went relatively smooth.

...I don't know about you...

Right when he got out of the recovery room. He was a bit sad, but after his "baba" he was content.

Don't you love how the curtains, duvet, and sheets all match? (We're working on it)
Within just a couple of hours, Noah was laughing and running around again. Phew! Although, he did have quite a bit of blood coming out the rest of the day and a little the day after. I worried and worried! It's something that I've gotten really good at. Luckily Mark is such a calm person!

We were able to relax, nap, and finish up packing before we left for our flight at 5 p.m. Philly here we come!

  1. i feel the EXACT same about video games and the wii! the wii is WAY more interactive than anything else. also, i have a purple pillowcase and danny has a green one. our sheets are green, our comforter is grey, and our curtains were blue but we put them in james' room so he sleeps better. matching colors and patterns has not been a priority for us! one day!!
