Valentines Day 2012!

This year since Valentine's Day landed on a night where Marissa has Cubbies at church we did some celebrating over the weekend!  Saturday night, Tony & I were able to get away on a date night.  It's been over two months since we have been without the kids so it was long overdue!  We had dinner at Redstone in Minnetonka and then I really wanted to go to skating so we headed over to the skating rink in Coon Rapids.  It was a super fun night.  The last time we went skating we had Marissa and my nephews with so this was a different experience.  We actually got to skate!  HA!  Here's a couple pictures from our night out!

My eyes have the red-eye effect....grrrr!

On Sunday, we did some shopping and furniture delivering to my cousin who just moved into her first apartment.  Brody fell asleep during all the festivities with his new sunglasses on.  HE LOVES SUNGLASSES and he actually keeps them on!  HA!

Tired boy!

Then last night, Marissa requested that we do a "fancy" dinner for Valentines Day and since we couldn't do it tonight we agreed that Monday night would work best!  She helped me prepare dinner, got dressed up, set the table and picked the itinerary for the evening.  We ate a lovely dinner, played a family game together and then opened presents!  It was a fun 4FAMILY night!

Marissa SO badly wanted to give him a duckie for Valentine's Day!

Marissa's reaction to her presents!

Marissa also got to celebrate at school yesterday with a Valentine's party.  She did an awesome job opening each Valentine and sounding the names out to see who gave her what!  She got lots of goodies and hasn't even asked for the candy!  GOOD KID!

Valentines Party!  Everything is always Marissa H.....the H is very important to her!

All in all, we had a great few days celebrating Valentine's day!  Now a couple of other random pictures I found on my phone to end this post.

Marissa is really growing up and asking to help do things.  The other day she wanted to help wash dishes.  Who am I to deny her that chore?  She was so happy and proud!

Helper Girl!

One last picture.....on Thursday, Marissa got her father/daughter dance costume....OOOO....is she SO happy and excited!  It's going to be SO fun to watch them at the recital!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
