Valentine Fun

We are borderline obnoxious at this point with anticipation of Blake's arrival tomorrow evening. The house is filled with Valentine cards and notes and the kids are in round-the-clock lovey dovey, heart clad clothes now that we've received another set of shirts from Britney.

We made cookies a couple of days ago. Love Jack's tongue sticking out while he's concentrating. And, don't even worry about the close proximity of his toddler shoes to the cookie dough. A little dirt never hurt anyone.

Rolling out cookie dough and cutting sugar cookies for this group nearly sent me over the edge. Way too much "help". So, this ended our baking lesson for the day. And, the cookies were replaced with trains.

Lainey Bug in her new Valentine gear.

Jack, too....pushing her in her doll stroller.

A hug from big brother.

24 hours had passed since baking the cookies and I had temporarily forgotten what an awful mess 3 children can make in the kitchen working together. So, we decorated them.

Again, pay no attention to his feet.

Lainey cannot seem to eat these days without covering her hair with whatever should be going in her mouth.


Took the little ones outside this morning to try to get a picture. Didn't get much other than, "Hand over the candy!"

These two look like they mean business, so I obliged.

Now she's happy.

Laughy girl.

And, boy.

Oh ADORABLE! I am so impressed that you made cookies with them! That would be a chore. Cute cookies! I bet they are good! They are adorable in their V day gear. Not too much longer until they see daddy!

I love them. . . especially the picture of Jack and Lainey demanding the candy. Also, Lainey and Carter definitely look like siblings in the picture of them together--adorable!!!

SO cute! Love them all!

Thanks, everyone!

I agree, too. Looks like LC might be a blondey like the boys after all. And, I think Carter and Lainey do look alike in that picture. Nice to see them finally resembling each other!

I can't get over how much Carter and Lainey look alike!!! And those tights....they're killing me! Love 'em!

Seriously these kids should model. Can't for your family to be together for the weekend!

enjoy having Blake home this weekend... I've been meaning to make Valentines' cookies for about a week, now but it really is SUCH a mess, so I keep putting it off. Love Lainey's tights!!!
