Valentines 2012

Due to a wrestling match that we had on Valentines night, our festivities started a day early  with our traditional dinner of heart shaped pizza, the ever popular LOVE POTION, candles and (fake) rose petals....I know, I know a little girly for this rough and tumble boy family--but, what can I say? I am that kind of girl...I can't help it:) My boys have learned to live with it! To be honest, I don't think they even noticed the petals --they were too busy trying to blow the fog at each other and snarf down the pizza.
 Then the ding door ditchings of homemade Valentines began...with Brad starting off with some sweet roses for me:)  We had decided to celebrate sans boys this weekend, so this was a big surprise!
 We soon had a big pile of love...
 And I knew it was time to quit when we started getting fake Valentines like this one...
They thought they were so hilarious!:

 I was happy to see that ALL of my boys still LOVE this tradition and I was pleasantly surprised with my older boys witty, but heartfelt messages.

Cannon was absolutely delighted with the whole idea of leaving love notes with treats and ringing the doorbell. For days he continued doing it at the most inopportune times,  until all of his treats from his preschool valentine bag had been sweetly re gifted to all of us.  It may have been a little annoying ...but so darn cute that everyone loved it:)

On the actual day I was able to help out in my Elementary School boys' class parties.
What a treat!

Bridger and his darling kindergarten teacher Mrs Chamberlain.

 And we wrapped up the night cheering on our boy TJ at a wrestling match.  His coach needed him to wrestle Varsity in a weight class 10 pounds over his weight that night.
It was a very exciting match--probably his toughest one this season--it was very hard fought---but he WON!
The crowd was on the edge of their seats and everyone was was awesome:)

Valentines Day with boys--never a dull moment!

Do your boys know how good they have it? I seriously doubt it...but someday their poor wives are going to have some BIG shoes to fill:) You're darling!
