This Child...

This Child...


I recently took Aubrey in to meet with our Allergist to be tested. Since our middle son has had food allergies, one being nuts, she has never had any. So in order to go to Preschool in the Fall, she had to be tested to make sure she didn't follow in her brothers footsteps. (allergies effect what class your child is in) After chatting up the Doctor, she sat patiently waiting to be tested. I was so nervous that she would cry because I know that all the pokes in her back would not be pleasant. To my surprise she sat on my lap and didn't even let out one tear. I could tell as they were getting closer to the end that it was getting more painful and the tears would be starting soon if we continued. For now we are not having her tested for outdoor/animal allergies because they are not as severe as Lukas's. PLUS I didn't want to put her through that if we could avoid it at this time. This ended up being  a huge relief to Justin and I. One less thing for me to stress about once she starts school.

A Day Filled With Love...

Our days are filled with love all year long but, I wanted to make Valentine's Day a little extra special this year. I woke up and made these heart shaped cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
                                                                       Idea from Pinterest
 Made heart lunches for the boys to take to school. Strawberry Jam and Soy Butter heart sandwiches. Valentine pretzels. Strawberries (frozen that we picked from the summer. the store was sold out!) and heart shaped marshmallow peeps.
                                        Strawberries, banana and cinnamon rolls for breakfast

 A VERY special treat. Strawberry milk. Aubrey was the only one that liked it. I'm sure it was because of it's color.
                                           Their mail bags were filled with special goodies.

              This little lady even got a rose delivered from daddy. Can you tell how excited she was.
                 I made up these heart hand warmers for teachers and aides from the boy's classes.
                                              Here is the tags I made for them. (idea from Pinterest)

                           My special helper and I helped out in Lukas's classroom during the party.
                                            Lukas LOVED getting valentines from classmates.
               For dinner, we had heart shaped pink pancakes and bacon shaped like hearts.
                                                                Cupcakes for dessert!
