The fun Valentine's festivities started on Saturday, when we decided to start baking cupcakes! I decided to go all out, and make some really crafty ones, and they actually turned out really cute, and I had a lot of fun doing them! Carson even helped. Well, he licked the spoon after I was done with the batter, but ya know....that's helping, right?!
Then we moved on to making cards. And, Carson made his Valentine's Day cards all by himself! They were equipped with a bunch of scribbles, and a lot of drool. O yeah, and ripped edges, and crumpled paper.......but, he had a blast making them! Not to mention, homemade cards are the best, and I think the recipients enjoyed them, too!
We celebrated Valentine's Day as a family on Sunday night, because Carl works nights, and he wouldn't be around to give Carson his gift on Valentine's Day, so we did it the night before. Carson isn't really into opening gifts, and could really care less about the paper, or unwrapping it. So, we helped him, and....he loves his gift from Dad & Mom!

Carson and Daddy had so much fun playing with Carson's new toy!
Then came actual Valentine's Day, and it was a great day! We loved extra hard today, if that is even possible? Carson got ready for daycare in his special Valentine's shirt, which explains him perfectly......
And he was off to daycare with baskets and cupcakes for his new friends! I don't get to buy "girly" things much, so I had so much fun putting together little Valentine's Day baskets for 2 special little girls, and 1 special little boy. Carson also came home from daycare with a little gift, and some yummy cookies. How sweet!
ALL of the gifts from Frannie and Grandpa Gary! They are awesome, and Carson loves it all! Carson really enjoys playing, and drooling on his laptop, as you can tell in this picture.....
I am so excited that I finally got his new "funny face" on camera! I have no idea where he learned this from, but it is such a kill to see. He will only do it certain times, and the times are few. It is prompted by me squeezing his nose, and then he does this face. I will sit in his room at nights, and squeeze his nose, and laugh so hard, and do it over and over and over again until my stomach hurts, or he decides he is done making the face. He is such a funny little boy. He is definitely my source of entertainment at night when I am alone!
I think that wraps up our Valentine's Day/Weekend 2011. It sure was amazing one, filled with family time, and a whole lot of love! I hope that you enjoyed your Valentine's Day as well. I know we did! My Love is waiting for me snuggled up in bed, and I have a few more kisses to give, and some prayers to say with him to complete this Wonderful day!
