V Day

 I know Valentine's Day was a few days ago, but the excitement lives on around here. 

Nothings says Valentine's Day like a pumpkin shirt and duck boots. 

All we need is doughnuts to get a smile out of her! 


 Francesca got some bangs for Valentine's Day. She can actually see now. What do you all think?

We didn't have enough of a sugar high with just the doughnuts. 

Isabella made me some beautiful jewelry.

My mom made me my favorite meal; I could eat it everyday! 

We're still wearing the frosty pajamas in the hopes that it will snow, just once, please! 

Victoria is finally understanding the fun of pretending. Whenever she sees a doll, she says, "waaaaaaa, no boo boo baby!" (she is actually kissing the doll here, not eating it's face)

This face is the result of too much sugar. Perhaps it has made her color-blind as well, though I kind of admire her "Pippy Longstocking" sense of style. 

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
