Valentine's Day 2011

Valentine's Day was so fun this year. As Landon gets older, it is so fun to see him "get" the holidays. I LOVE dressing the boys for the holiday as well. As Landon gets older though, I realize dressing a boy for Valentine's Day is a little "babyish." What do you think? I see all these adorable girl things for Valentine's Day and I love it! I get sick of the same shirt that says "Heartbreaker." I think three out of the four shirts that Landon has had over the years has said that.

We had a great Valentine's Day together as a family. We started the day getting the boys dressed in their shirts and got Landon ready for his Valentine's Day party at school. He was so excited to take his "Cars" themed Valentine's to his friends. Nate took Landon to school and Liam went down for his morning nap. I did my Jillian Michaels video and caught up on housework. As I went to go pick up Landon from school, I thought about this day 5 years ago. You see my water broke with Landon on Valentine's night. (technically early a.m. on February 15th) I remember Nate and I had a very quiet dinner at BRIO Tuscan Grille on the plaza in Kansas City where we were living at the time. I was 9 months pregnant and so ready to get this large baby out of my belly that was due on February 26th. Little did I know he would come early. To end our Valentine's Day this year, we enjoyed some dinner at El Puente as a family. Nate and I will be celebrating as a couple next week as we have a babysitter for both of our boys.

Sweet Baby Liam-9 months

Already not wanting to sit still for the camera.

Landon being his silly, cute self. Liam was done!

Good one of Landon but the sunshine was in Liam's face.
