Valentine Weekend- 2013

A month or so ago I told Kent that I didn't want to exchange gifts for V-day.  I just wanted to have a nice night out with him.  Kent agreed and said he would plan the whole thing.  I figured he would eventually ask my opinion on the date night, but he never did.  He told me it would be a surprise.  If you know me, you know I do like surprises, but it's really hard for me to enjoy the leading up to it because I have no control over the situation.  Anyway, about a day before the big weekend Kent did tell me that we would be going to a movie before our dinner, but that we would have to come home to change before eating since the restaurant was fancy.  Little black dress and heels fancy.  Hmm, ok.. My daddy came up for a few days to help babysit the kids for us and he was in on all the plans as well.  We went out to the movie (Safe Haven) and as we were leaving Kent broke the news on the next part of our surprise.  We were not going home to change.  Instead, he had made reservations for us to eat dinner at a fancy restaurant that was also inside a hotel.  We booked us for the night.  What??!!?  No going home and getting kids ready for bed?  Getting to sleep in the next day?  Yes, please!  He had went earlier in the day to check us in and had hidden our bags in the back of the car.  To say I was shocked would be an understatement.  I had absolutely no clue.  He did so good and I am glad he took the time to plan it all out and surprise me.  We had a great time and it is definitely a date night I won't soon forget!

Snow Day

OK, so it wasn't REAL snow, but it was cold and wet so the kids didn't care.  A local church brought in a bunch of snow for a snow day on President's Day.  The kids were out of school so we thought we'd head over and check it out.  The kids only got to go down the hill once because it was so crowded, but they each said it was fun.  As for any real snow.. I am not holding my breath for any this year.. which is fine with me!
