School Parties and Nice Surprises

All of the kids had their Valentine's parties this afternoon. Of course they got way too much candy.But I'm letting them eat it. Maybe they will stay quiet while I do this post(umm I might have to put that on the Not Me! Monday). I'm sure I looked a sight coming in the school. I had to bring 6 boxes of juice,2 bags of chips, 2 bowls of cookies,9 boxes of rice crispy treats and 4 pizzas. Of course I didn't want to walk all the way back to the car.So I tried to carry it all by myself. I made to the hallway then recruited a 4th grader to help.

This was the only picture I was "allowed" to take. When we got home he asked "Mom,why do you always have to take pictures?" I said"Because I want too."

Noah doesn't mind me taking his picture.

Noah had to bring in a candy bar yesterday and they wrote about it.I love when he writes he was "smacking"on it.

Posted by PicasaZoe was loving these cupcakes until she bit into a Red Hot. But we picked them off and she ate the whole thing.

We finally get home.My head has been hurting all day and I am tired. I unlock the door and open it. This is what is sitting on my table! I was thinking how did Corey get these here? As I walked closer I knew it wasn't from Corey. My best friend Melissa had snuck in with the spare key and left me all of this. She made me a basket with candles,bath soaps and chocolate! Then there were the balloons, my favorite flowers(daisies) and a beautiful card. I think I have the greatest friend in the whole world!! Thank you Melissa!!

I use to love my school Valentine's Day parties. I remember taking a shoe box and decorating it and making a hole on the top for all of my Valentines that I received from all the other kids in my class. It was so much fun and who didn't love all the candy and food (oh yummy).

Have a great weekend!!

Girl, I would have loved to seen you carrying all of that..Why do we try to carry everything at one time? The kids looked like they had a great time. You have a great BF that was really sweet of her...
