Saturday night, Shane and I got to celebrate Valentines and my birthday by going out to dinner. My sisters and brother came over to our house to babysit so Shane and I could have a date night!. We decided that we wanted to avoid the Valentine crowd, and just went to one of our favorite local Chinese restaurants to eat. Nothing too fancy, but it was perfect for us. Seriously, I told Shane I would have been happy if we went to McDonald's. At home, meals are...well, crazy. For us, just being together and being able to finish a sentence over dinner is such a treat ;)!!
After dinner, we headed over to my sweet friend, Celia's house. Celia insisted that, because I was turning 30, I had to have a little party.
( so...sorry this pic turned out a little blurry!)
So, bless her heart, she invited some of my dearest and closest friends from church over to celebrate my birthday with me. She is the BEST!!! ( love ya girl!!!)
Celia made some of my favorite desserts---cheesecake with strawberries, and a yummy Oreo dessert. Both were totally fantastic. We hung out, ate, chatted, and then played the game Catch Phrase! LOVE that game! We had a BLAST. I truly haven't laughed that hard in a long time!!!
It was GREAT!!!
I am so grateful to the Lord for the 30 years he has given me.
I am so...incredibly BLESSED!!!
Sunday morning, the kids woke up and bolted down stairs to open their little valentine treat.
Love their sweet, little bed heads!
We decided not to go to church because the babies were still not feeling the best.
Most of the day was spent resting and playing outside in what little snow was left from the storm on Friday!
Riley an I did go to church Sunday night for Wee Praisers choir, but Shane kept the rest of our clan home!
Here's hoping you had an extra special Valentines weekend!!
