Oh how sweet it is!

Hey friends out there had the best Valentine's day ever. It wasn't a romantic day,but it was a fun filled family day and I loved it. It started with making the kiddos Heart shapped chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. They loved that of course! Some of the chips were candy coated so that kind of made a pink hue to the pancakes. That's okay...they were happy!

Soon after breakfast we went on a family bike ride and then took Little Leila for a walk. Adam apparently didn't get the memo on it being a leisurely ride...he took off at warp speed because he needed to be "the leader". That kid...sweet,but very competitive. All in all, still a great ride.

We then ran off to Sam's b-day party. She was dressed as the prettiest princess in Placentia. Wish I got a pic,but I be that you can find them on Illyse's blog!
Later we went out to eat with another family. We went to Teppanyaki. The boys loved it! The cook even flipped rice at them to catch in their mouths.

Here are a few pics with our friends we went to dinner with and their kiddos!

Lastly to wrap up the valentine's day hoopla, the boys and my hubby gave me roses and my little ones also wrote me poems. Lucky me. They were really sweet! Although Nicholas did title his ROSES ARE DEAD, VIOLETS ARE POOP.Boys...what more can I say....

So up the scrappy/crafty part of my life I want to mention that there is a new challenge up at Scrap it Forward! It is an easy one to commit too and will help those in need. All for free...did I mention a prize is involved? Go check it out!
Here is the layout that I did for the challnege on SIF !

And here is a layout that just makes me happy when I look at it. :0) Sweet little Adam likes to cook! So I gave my Chef's hat from CHA.

Oh and... good news! My annual crop to benefit Autism Speaks is scheduled for April 17th at the Scrapbook Oasis, so save the date. Details to come!!

Lastly want to win one cool RAK...a Gift certificate to the scrapbook store of your choice...well go see Sarah at Red Oak lines and tell her Christine/scrappygal sent you by the way! 1. All you have to do is comment to her post saying, “Sarah needs to be at 50,000!” This is open until she is at 50,000 views.
