Valentine's Day

It is snowing, again. Dean and I have been like two ships passing in the night this past week. He gets up early to be at work anywhere from 3:00-5:00 am, in order to have the parking lots plowed before employee's and customers begin to arrive. He comes home tired and plows the fresh snow from our drive, eats supper and crawls into bed to begin the process all over again in the morning. I grabbed sleep when I could between caring for sick children. Last night we finally had a chance to talk about a few pressing issues such as a certain young man's attitude. Being sick for three days and then having two snow days meant Tristan missed a whole week of school. It is time to resume a normal schedule around here.
   Kiana was playing with her Fisher Price Little People this morning. I asked what they were playing and Kiana said she is driving a big ship that rescues robber who fall into the sea. Joseph was building a jeep/airplane thing with his Lego's. He told me he put an air conditioner inside the jeep. I said, "Doesn't your man get cold?" Joseph said he just turns his air conditioner way back and then it blows hot air. They have quite the imagination.
   I made a Valentines Supper last night. We had Spaghetti, Salad, Peanut Butter Pie and some cookies a friend dropped off. The children begged to eat by candle light. I didn't have very many candle's but since it wasn't totally dark outside we were able to see enough to eat.
We pretended the Styrofoam plates were china and the cups were glass rather than plain old plastic.

My friend Melissa, stopped in and gave this plate of yummy valentine cookies. We had a good talk while our children played together. Their visit made a cold snow day pass by more quickly.
