A great Valentine’s day in Maine. Everyone enjoyed their shirts. Probably not as much as I did seeing them all in them, but Ella wore it without a fight so that is a good sign. She told me that she even told 4 people at school that her mom made her shirt for her. We are already planning where we can sew racing stripes on Steve’s clothes-please someone tell us when we have gone over the top here. 🙂
I was a big winner today. I got the most beautiful dozen roses at school when I arrived this morning. And then an email that informed me that my sweet, thoughtful husband had posted a special valentine podcast on Groovepool just for me. It is chock full of love songs and sweet sentiments. I love it. Makes me happy and gives me good driving and sewing tunes.
While I was at work soaking up my Valentine love, my other thirds were at the Primary school enjoying Ella’s 100 day celebration. In honor of the day and the holiday, for the past ten years our little school has had each classroom collect 100 of one item for the local food pantry. There is a presentation at the school and it is a feel good moment for all involved.
Ella’s class had a mac and cheese mountain
Nice work kids
Nice glasses, El
Molly thinks it is good
I got home and made some Yummy flourless chocolate cakes
And we had a fantastic dinner of steak and mushrooms! Good family valentine’s day. The girls even convinced Steve to join their High School Musical band.
Rock and Roll!
One more day until vacation. Looking forward to some time at home. But this weekend Steve and I are heading south to Newburyport for a night away. Kids are going to the Randalls and we are going to the Garrison Inn. Also trying a new place for dinner, Ten Center Street. I am very much excited about the prospect of some grown up time and sleeping in. Yes siree Bobby!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all my awesome family and friends. We love all of you! Thanks for making our lives so much better. You know who you are!
