My Valentines

It is wonderful to have so many Valentines.  Especially ones that I  love so much!  :) 
My first born, Lydia.
She is sweet and loving,
Smart and social.
Stubborn at times,
and so, so beautiful!

Erynn is the middle child.
She is wild and sweet and crazy,
Trouble with a capital T,
One who needs little sleep,
Talks to who she wants to and ignores others.
My blond haired, blue eyed wonder,
and generally just crazy!

(yes, his shirt does say "the ladies love me")
Colin is my baby,
Boy through and through,
But sweet and friendly to all,
Sleeps his life away,
Loves balls and trucks,
and thinks his Mom is the best!
And finally, my husband.
What can I say?
He is a self-proclaimed nerd,
who loves games, Duke basketball,
and (thankfully) Cardinal baseball...
Oh and of course, me!  :)

I hope that your Valentines are as special as mine and you have a wonderful day!  Happy Valentine's Day!

Lydia's party

Have you ever been to a party with 26 First Graders?  Well, let's just say it is more than a little chaotic.  I was the head room mom for Lydia's class this year and although it was fun, I don't think I will be doing it again anytime soon!  :)  We have now made it through all of the classroom parties and I have to say they were a lot better at this party than at the Christmas party...maybe we I learned a little bit about dealing with these kids.  Then again, maybe not. 
Playing heads up 7-UP.  It might be a Catholic school thing, but this game is SO much fun!
 T and Mrs. Kamp watching the other kids playing hot potato.

A, K, J, and P playing hot potato.  Amazingly they were so calm and well behaved!

And finally, my "goth" looking girl...I think the blue mouth just added to her mystique.  :)  I think she is the most adorable girl in the world and at least one other boy person agrees with me...but that is a whole other post.  Maybe.  If I ever am ready for Lydia to grow up.  Probably not.

Erynn's party

Erynn being her usual honery self!  Thanks for the skirt Lexi...she looked so stinkin' cute!  :)
Erynn washing her hands before snack time. 
Such a great groups of kiddos...they are praying before eating!  So cute!

So Erynn had her Valentine's party on Thursday since they only have school 2 times a week.  It was certainly a blast and Erynn was SO excited!  She even wrote her "name" on 19 valentines to give to all her friends.  She was so proud of herself and knows excatly what she is doing, although her writing often needs some interpretation.  On to another party today...hopefully I will get a few more pictures since my camera battery is charged today (unlike yesterday).  Ahem!
