My aunt Linda sent us Kinect Sports. We have had SO much fun playing. I love the ping-pong! We played party play for Family Fun night and had so much fun! I highly recommend it!!
We even used the Kinect Sports to have a pentathlon during our Olympics lesson. We did long jump, discus, javelin, a foot race, and boxing.
Ben and Art made a cake for the Cub Scout Father Son Cake Bake Night – it was chocolate and so yummy. They did a great job. Ben decided he loved making cakes and has become quite the baker.
We had a low key – but fun none-the-less V-Day. Hope you all had a great day too!
We started the day by making Baklava. Lincoln just finished his unit on Ancient Greece and so we decided to make the Greek treat. It was “nut-free” baklava – which made it a bit different. Not because of any health issues or anything like that – only because I was too cheap to pay $8.00 for nuts! To me that is just ridiculous!!!!! Lincoln did a great job.
As the sauce was cooking, we made paper heart valentines for his doctors. We go to the clinic every week and so we know the gals there pretty well. So he made a heart for each of them. It was really cute. He also took each of them a piece of his baklava.
For dinner we had all pink and red (except the green beans – cuz I didn’t know how to make those red). We had pink pasta with red sauce. Rolls with red polka-dots. Pink love potion to drink and a cherry Danish roll thing for dessert (brought over from our next door neighbor Wayne as a treat). We had red, pink, and purple placemats (construction paper) with love notes on them.
Each boy got the traditional V-Day stuffie (our word for stuffed animal).
And Gma and Gpa sent them $5 each and a card. Jack is so funny he kept wanting to feel the money and told EVERYONE that he had a 5 dollar bill. We went to Wal-Mart today so Linc and Jack could spend their VDay money.
Jack got a pack of water guns, sidewalk chalk, and a box of nerds.
Lincoln bought 2 more stuffies and a pack of gum. He wanted to save his last dollar.
Art and I agreed to not do anything for each other – we didn’t forgot about each other- I made him a card and he sent me a text. Totally romantic I know!
We love holidays around here – big or small and had a lot of fun celebrating our love for each other. It is nice to have a day to help us remember to show our love!
P.S. It was 69 degrees in Las Vegas today!! Loving it!
