Valentine's Day at Home {and on the radio}

Our girls really get the royal treatment when it comes to holidays.  I guess if people want to show their love for them, what better time than Valentine's Day, huh?  My aunt and uncle gave the girls a cute stuffed animal and a chocolate covered marshmallow {that pretty much got devoured upon delivery}!  My parents gave each of the girls a goodie bag of treats and books, their friends Kate & Kendall sent valentines all the way from California, and their Grandma and Poppa sent some presents as well.  Of course, we had to give them a few things too or it might look bad!  ;)  Here are a few pictures of the girls opening some of their gifts...

If you remember back to Christmas, I surprised David with front row tickets to the taping of NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me program.  The show was the night before Valentine's Day, so it sort of did double duty!  We dropped the kids off at Mom & Dad's and then headed out for a bite to eat before the show.   It was really cool to watch them do the taping and David and I enjoyed listening to the final cut of the program yesterday.

We had big plans for the next morning since both girls were having a sleepover with their Nana & Poppy, but unfortunately there wasn't much sleeping going on with Olivia and Nana.  Poor girl wasn't feeling well and complained of her ear hurting, so I got a wake up call at 7:30 the next day and went to take her to the doctor.  Sure enough, she has her first ear infection.  I'm still glad we got to have a fun night out for Valentine's Day!

I'm glad you did too. I didn't mind not getting much sleep. I just hated that Olivia felt so bad and could not get comfortable. Glad she is feeling somewhat better.
