Aidan dove right in to his box. This kid doesn’t miss many sweets… can you tell? (He’s definitely MY baby!)
Liam dove in too… but he made sure to open all the wrappers and take just one bite from each… naturally leaving the rest for me to clean up (or his brothers/dogs to eat)…
So did Liam! Oops! (They are really in to Dora & Diego now, for some reason… so these were perfect little boxes for them.)
So, whether I liked it or not, the littles had chocolate for breakfast… and a lot of it. (I must admit, I had quite a few Ghiradelli chocolates from MY box too!) I made sure to make them a healthy lunch to counter-act the sugar (yeah, right!). Not sure how much it helped… but I tried anyway!
As the afternoon went on, we were greeted with another Valentine’s Day surprise when the mail man came. Grandma sent 5 more boxes of chocolate!!! She trumped me on this one… these boxes had the GOOD candy in them. Oh boy! An afternoon snack of MORE CANDY!!! Woot!!!
Ok, I know… I was a bad mom… but MY Valentine’s were happy Valentines!!! It was a holiday… let ’em live a little! (Please ignore the dishes in my sink… I don’t usually leave them there, but it was Valentine’s Day & I was being lazy eating chocolate!)
Noah & Eli are obviously missing from the pictures. They actually had the day off school and they were far to busy to stay home and be photographed. They had a great day too, and even managed to save a little of their chocolate until the next day. Well… other than the few remaining pieces that Luke stole. He’s been known to pull a chair up to the counter to access the upper cabinets.
Hope everyone had a Happy Valentines’ Day!!!
