We had an awesome and awfully busy Valentine's weekend. Granny and Poppi came to visit. We celebrated Valentine's Day and an early birthday for Matt.
It seems crazy that we were soo anticipating Matt's return from out of town and now he is already gone. "Time flies when you're having fun," I guess.
Addison and I, and a friend went to an amazing Valentines party Saturday morning. It reminded me of what Valentine's Day's were like when we were young. The kids had craft tables. They made Valentines for friends, bags to keep their Valentines and many other Valentine's day related crafts. They munched on heart shaped cheese, heart shaped sandwiches and of course chocolate covered strawberries. The party came into conclusion with a knocking of the heart shaped pinata. It was a blast! I wish Valentines Day landed more often on the weekend, so we could have many more parties like this .
Addison , Granny and I then headed to the Galleria. What dumb fun. It was a mere hour trip, but it was wonderful! I have not been out like that in so long. To get out and not have to stress about Jake and where he would be running to, when he might be having a seizure, and who is going to be staring , was awesome. After we got some errands done, returning Christmas gifts, we went to the American Girl store. Geez, as cool as I think it is, I am kind of , secretly wishing, Addison does not get "fully" into it. Besides it being, outrageuously expensive, one cant walk into the cathedral, they call a store, without having an anxiety attack. The mass amount people, the lines and the fighting over doll clothes and accessories, is all I can handle.
It was a great weekend, but over too quickly.
