So for the first time in years, we celebrated Valentine's day. Maybe its the Love Dare book, who knows. But my hubby planned a nice afternoon lunch on Friday the day before, 3 o'clockish at Chili's using the gift cards that I won from the Chili cook-off at church 2 weeks ago. I know that he was being smart. If we would have gone on Sat, it would have been too crowded and we never would have gotten a seat. We would have had to tote the 4 girls along with us since its my MIL's birthday on Valentine's Day. I am not complaining at all. It always sounds like I am, doesn't it? Anyway. He got me a necklace. Its a very nice cross. He didn't even get me a birthday present! Like I said, maybe its the Love Dare book, maybe not. After close to 6 years of marriage maybe he is just realizing that he better get on board with that kind of stuff or else. Either that or he is buttering me up for something......um. So I also drug him to the book store and Tuesday Morning and he did not even complain.....we picked up the girls around 630 and went home. We watched about 4 movies over the weekend, I can't remember which one we watched that night, but it was a nice afternoon date. I totally enjoyed it.
So I spent Saturday cleaning the house, working at church and being mom. Sunday was Birthday party day...The MIL is getting old. Whats better than fried chicken after church on Sunday? With a little Birthday cake and a song? So at church it was the last message in a series called "Bringing Sexy Back". It was the best message out of the series, and I was glad to not have missed it. If you are interested at all.....click here and go to Feb-14/15 and click on the mp3 all the way on the right. Its all about sex.So Monday, Presidents Day was spent honoring our presidents past, of course. We went Eagle Watching. Bald Eagle searching is more like it. We saw lots of them! It was cold, wee bit windy. I have a sniffle today. But the kids loved it and we had a great family day. Here are some pictures from our weekend adventures....
This was the closest picture that we got. We even saw him poop. We thought he was going to take flight, but even gave us another show instead. The girls sure thought it was funny.
