Can You Feel the Love?

So to borrow a line from my friend Casey, "It looks like Valentine's threw up in my house!"  We have loads of candy, valentine's scattered in every room, hearts galore and more flowers than I have seen since my wedding day.

Unlike some of my other friends, I didn't do any fabulous Valentine's crafts - maybe next year.  I am totally stealing Sara's idea.  My excuse ... out of town all last week.  But we did get some treats ...

Flowers for the girls from Mr. ESPN (per my suggestion).  Tulips for me from last week - Mr. ESPN surprised me with them when he picked me up from the airport.  No we don't do that grand welcome home thing, he picks me up on the curb ... but this time he had flowers in the car. 

More flowers from Mr. ESPN - he wasn't sure what to get the girls and since Chatty isn't into pink he got this bouquet on the left (which still haven't opened) and then roses for me.  Don't worry - all flowers were purchased at Costco the day before Valentine's Day because - duh Costco is the best store ever and because their flowers are cheap and pretty and smell good.
Valentine's morning - they were just a tad bit wired and this was pre-candy!

I bought this shirt at Christmas for some family pictures we never got around to taking ... came in handy for Valentine's day for the girl who HATES pink!

And the girl who loves pink and all things girlie

A little sisterly love

Who would have thought based on the picture above that they were fighting on the way home from school when we called Granny to wish her a Happy Birthday (my Granny celebrated her 85th on Valentine's Day).   Oh well, at least we got some pictures that morning!

Can you feel the love?!

So, a tomboy and a girlie girl? awesome!
We don't do flowers much.
Brad use to pick them up for me when we were dating.
The Wally World dozen.
Now, I tell him to save his $$ for a trip. HA!

Tulips are my favorite! And gerber daisies :) Yay for Mr. ESPN.
I'm impressed that he takes and picks you up at the airport at all. When I traveled for work, I always drove myself to the airport!

The Valentine crayons are sooooo easy. the girls would love doing them too!
