The week before Valentine’s Day I had the great idea to dress the kids up in their new clothes from DeeDee & E and take some really cute pictures. In my mind they were gonna turn out SO cute and then I would make Valentine cards and mail them out to all our family….yeah, in my mind. In real life, as soon as I got ready to take the pictures Zane started crying and throwing a fit because he didn’t like Hollin’s polka dot rug in her room. So random! He was screaming over and over, “I.DON’T.LIKE.THAT.RUG!” When I finally got him calmed down, Hollin started crying. I think by the time I got both of them calmed down I was on the verge of tears. And then I couldn’t get both of them to look at the camera at the same time. Real life here. So here are some of the outtakes. Matt cracked up at that last one. Said that it looks like Zane is singing some soul music.Zane and I made some treats to take to his friends at Ms. Jeri’s house. This kid….he saw me with the camera and said, “You take my picture? I wanna look mad.” So here are his ‘mad face’ pictures. Are you dying? I am.Ha-Bear “helped” us, too. And, fyi, I could’ve made way more treats if a certain little three year-old hadn’t eaten half of the Hershey’s Hugs.Surprise, Surprise! Matt and I got to go on a date on Valentine’s Day! ‘Mr. Sandy’, as Zane calls him, insisted on coming over and spending the evening with Zane so that Matt and I could go to dinner. Sandy is one of the fellows that Matt works with. Zane loooves him and is convinced that the only reason he comes to our house is to play cars with him. Hollin went with us and Matt called her a statue. She never moved or made a peep the whole night. We ate at Madison’s Downtown and it was so yummy! It was nice to have adult conversation without having to worry about a spilled drink or a kid crawling around under the table.
