Happy Valentines Day!
We had an amazing Valentines Day! Hope you all did too! The kids were more excited to wake up this morning then on Christmas... they couldn't wait to "hunt" for their gifts. They worke up at 7 this morning and followed the picture clues to find a gift from dad and mom. We got them scooters!!! They were both so excited they were riding them all around the house. We then had pink heart pancakes and sausage for breakfast. We then got ready Mad in a new pink
shirt and Braden in his new red and I work an "I Love Tom" shirt which the kids found so funny. Tom and I exchanged gifts he got me The Time Travelers Wife movie, chocolates, and a very sweet card. I made him a bunch of candy bar sayings why I love him... (i.e. You always make me "snicker") and wrote him a little love letter. We then went and visited Grandpa & Grandma Jensen the kids brought their new scooters to ride around. My sweet Dad and Mom gave them a cute school supply set and chocolate box in their fave character themes (B= Cars M= Tinker Bell) and books. They also gave me and Tom giant Hershey kisses and movie tickets. So nice! Thanks again! Then we went home and rested for a while then had our traditional Valentine's Day Dinner! We had our heart shaped pizza and I made chocolate chip cookies. We have had heart shaped pizza every year for probably 5 years now. We eat by candle light and usually use the fancy dishes. Although this year I gave myself a gift and used Vday themed paper stuff as I worked tonight! What a special Great Day! I love all my family sooo much and am so happy to have them all in my life! What a fun way to celebrate my Love for them!

Flores Family February Date Night-
Tonight we had our special date nights... this month we each decided to do something special with each kiddo. Tom and Maddison went to a Daddy Daughter Dance! She was sooo excited! I fancied her all up we did make up and I let her wear one of my dressier necklaces. They danced and had snacks, took pictures, and Tom even bought her roses! So sweet! I decided that I would let Braden choose what we did tonight and Braden wanted to play toys at home. He ended up choosing Legos and wanting to build a garage for his cars... I may need a little Lego tutoring :) But we had a lot of fun!

Hello! It's has been WAY WAY too long!!! I have been telling myself that I need to catch up and thinking of the many months of catching up I had to do has been way too overwhelming... then I decided to apply one of my favorite mantras to my blog "you are never behind just jump in where you are..." So here I am! If I feel motivated I will try to catch up on some previous memories later... These years are just way too precious and my kids are too big of stars to not take a minute to write down all the fun things that go on in our busy lives... These pics are from the other day Maddie and her friend Sydney did body art then caught Braden and fancied him up too! I just couldn't resist not taking a pic to use against him later in life... :)
