I will also celebrate with my Mom who ditched Dad to spend some time with us! (Thanks, Dad!) She flies in today and I am really looking forward to her visit, as are the kids. I wasn't going to tell them that their grandma was coming so they would be surprised when they came home from school (taking a page out of the Rex Thornton play book), but A is a bit of a sleuth and discovered the secret!
This is a scene from our early V-Day kick-off with the whole fam - though not in the picture Matt and I did attend the the pre-party! The kids were thrilled that I pulled out the cookie making supplies. It was difficult, but I relinquished control and let them decorate their own cookies - what you see here are the results - aren't my protege's doing well?
