Me: Ya, I guess
Mariah: And before dad had anybody was he kinda lonely?
Mariah: So one day you both went to the grocery story feeling kind of lonely when your shopping carts bumped into each other and dad looked up then put his shopping cart back and that's when he decided to become the dad?
Me: (Laughing) Is that how you think it worked?...I then told her how we really met and she said,
So why did you say yes when he asked you on a date? Is it because you thought he was handsome and that he'd never done anything mean to you before?...Oh from the mouth of babes.
We had a fun week planning and playing. It started off with Mariah requesting a My Little Pony Valentine Box. I guess that's what I was asking for when we made her awesome Rapunzel box last year...Now she expects awesome again. The other problem was if Mariah had a sweet box than Zach had to have one too. After all, I love all my kids equallly. Zach wanted a la-la. Shocking, I know! I had no idea how to make a la-la so we went with a zoo instead. He loves his new "la-la house".
The kids made these chalk board Valentine boxes as Lowe's on Saturday but they were going to be too small for our exchanges.
I also made festive jigglers of hearts, lips, and flowers that were devoured and the hit of all the kids. The hit of the moms at the party was the 2 new sisters in the ward that own Kneaders and brought catered deserts. Ya, they are invited to all of our parties from now on.
