A Fun Valentine's Day and some scrapping!

OK, so the major fun for the day consisted of dragging out the blanket from our bed and the pillows from the living room into the large entrance area and having me lay down so the kids could climb over and jump on me! I took the pictures of Nathan and Sophia as they jumped over me and then kyle came and laid down beside me and wanted me to take his picture. He was feeling somewhat better today as you can see though he was still sick and worn out more than anything. Seemingly on the mend though thankfully...

This was me trying to take a picture of Kyle only to have Nathan want to "See! See!"

This was the picture I was trying to take before with Kyle and all his muscle that he likes to show off!

After wearing the kids out and getting them some lunch, everyone went for a nap. Kyle stayed up and we cuddled for a bit after the kids went for their naps. He had lunch on the safe again and though that was quite good. After they were all down, I managed to get a little scrapping done and did this layout for a Scrapperie Challenge by Shannon (Swell) that was to use a Love Song title as part of your layout, so I used the "Always" by Atlantic Starr.

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned Paper by Basic Grey and Moxxie. Title lettering is American Crafts Vinyl Thickers and EK Success Bookworks. Flourish stamp by Autumn Leaves. Ribbon is American Crafts. Hearts are cut from Moxxie patterned paper. Round Embellishment is a Sandylion Stamp. "Love" stamp is Studio G (Hampton Art).

We had a nice dinner after George got home. We don't do too much for Valentine's but he was very thoughtful and sent me a card in the mail that arrived yesterday. What he wrote in it and the simple fact that he thought to do that actually made me cry. He brought me a little bouquet of chocolate roses today too.

For any of you that read my blog yesterday and read about my woes with Sears, here's the update! I talked to the manager this morning and she apologized telling me that they had called everyone on the list and that somehow we just weren't on the list. HELLO - not my problem! She said she give me a free sheet, but I planned on getting more than that when I saw someone in person.

I went tonight and the girl had been instructed to give me a free sheet, so she could refund one or comp me one for next time. I asked if there were extra prints - which there always are because they try and sell them to you when you pick yours up. There were 3 sheets and she started by asking which one I wanted and I was looking at them trying to figure out what to say to her to make sure I got all three and then she suddenly suggested just that! I ended up with some B&Ws with a vingette that's quite cute. I'll post some when I get the chance! I have to say that the girl tonight was very apologetic and sympathetic as well!

OK, think I'd better get to bed here! I have another layout to post tomorrow as well!

Looks like you had fun! Valentine's Day takes on a whole new meaning when you have little ones to share it with, doesn't it?

I'm glad that Sears came through and did a good job on mending their customer service mistake - without you having to be the bad guy!

Have a great day!
