Valentine's was a fun two day event in our house. Michael surprised me by sending flowers to work, which I loved. When I arrived at work my boss asked if I had talked to Amy (a close friend and co-worker) about my flowers, when I told her no and asked what happened, my boss said she would let Amy tell me the story. Moments later Amy arrived in my room and told me to open my flowers, which I did. I read the card to her, "I love and cherish you" and then she dragged me into her room. Excitedly she pointed to her own roses and told me to read the card, "To Second Wife" (Michael's nickname for her because he helps her fix things like a husband would do). We both were dying laughing. Michael made my Valentine's by thinking about others on this day, which reminded me why I married him, he has such a big heart!

The next day was Gabby's Valentine's Day (real Valentine's) she was so excited about her Valentine's party at school. The night before she worked hard signing all of her Valentine's cards for her friends (cat and puppy cards with temporary tattoos). She had a lot of fun at her little party where the teacher gave them each a heart shaped box of candy and allowed them to eat a cookie and play extra on the playground.

|Within a week of receiving my amazing Valentine's flowers half had been confinscated and placed in a vase in Gabby's room and Lila had claimed the other half causing them to look like this. I think they enjoyed the flowers more than I was allowed to.|
But that was not the end of our Valentine's celebration. Gabby got a few cards in the mail on various days and she was so excited to open each one. She carries the one Aunt Ellen gave her around the house constantly because it plays music and has a cat dancing to the music. She tries to imitate the cat. Literally every time someone new comes to the house she is sure to show them her card and giggle as she reenacts the cat's dance. She is still enjoying her Valentine's cards and toys.
