Happy Valentines Day!

Anthony came home with a lot of loot from his Valentines Day party yesterday. He said he had a great time and even bragged a little bit about having TWO cupcakes. Lucky! 

After Papa got home yesterday and we ate dinner, we made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and red sprinkles for all the guys at his work as a special treat. Of course I couldn't bare to send them ALL to work....so the kids and I each had one. And oooohhh man were they delicious! Hopefully everyone at works likes them as much as we did.

Here's the card the kids and I made for Papa. I got the idea off of Pinterest (yay!).

We also picked him up a 20 flavor jelly belly sample box and a bag of Valentine colored M&M's. I took an old drink bottle and ripped off the label. Then I made a "Happy Valentine's Day" tag and fastened it to the bottle with some twine. Just like with the card, I traced and cut out the kiddo's hand prints then glued them to the bottle and filled it on up with the M&Ms!

Today we went and visited him at work for lunch! I made us all turkey sandwiches. The kids were sooooo excited to go! When we got there we surprised him with his gifts and then when the kids were still eating, I snuck into Sam's office to set up the kiddo's Valentine baskets. I had picked up a few baskets and little chocolate boxes at the store last week, then with the help of Valentines boxes from the Grandparents, I filled up the baskets with tons of other goodies too! I didn't want to give them their baskets in the morning because Sam wouldn't be home. And then I didn't want to wait until the end of the day either cause that's no fun! So it seemed like a grand idea to give them their treats while making our special visit at Papa's work. Even Baby Timothy got a card. :) Sammy and the kids got me a few cards that I opened up this morning, they were sweet.

Please excuse the grump face on Anthony in this last photo! LOL! He was mad because we were heading home and he wanted to stay with Papa.

I don't think we have much plans for tonight. Dinner and hanging out. But that's just fine with me, I'm exhausted. My midwife should be showing up any time now for my monthly appointment. Those are always fun, though it means I have no time for a nap! 

Hope everyone is enjoying their day!


With love,
Mama Hauck

  1. How great that the whole family is able to visit Sam at work! When I was a boy I went to my dad's office once (maybe twice?) I don't recall any specifics of the visit, but about forty years later I still remember that I went. I'm sure the kids won't forget this either. :)


Please share your thoughts with me!
