I heart weekends

We had a nice Valentine's Day. Nice and quiet. Just the four of us. It started with a lazy morning - for me, anyway. Debbie had both kids in the am and I slept in until almost ten. It was quite possibly the best Valentine's present I've ever received. After I got up, Debbie and Matteo went to get her car serviced, while Luca and I stayed behind to make Spool Dolls.









Later that afternoon, we hopped into the car to seek out a Valentine's Day meal. Of course, the Spool Dolls joined us.




We decided on sushi at one of our favorite spots.





We rounded off the evening with movie night - Land Before Time.



The movie was Luca's choice.



So was the popcorn.



The fact that the evening ended, er, not so well - what with the tantrum and all - doesn't negate the fact that we had a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Maybe even the best one yet.

You are so right... getting to sleep in until 10 am is the BEST PRESENT EVER!

I LOVE the spool dolls! How did you come up with that one?! Grace and I should give that a try. They're great.

I don't think I even could sleep in until ten anymore. After almost eight years, my body is trained to wake at the crack of dawn.

Still, it does sound romantic. Funny how our view of romance changes after kids, isn't it?

Every time I see new photos, I think oh I want a copy of that one, but definitely this last one!
