Happy Valentine's Day!!!!
Since we are in our only year of preschool, this is Macklin's first experience with class valentine cards. We started work on ours about three weeks ago because I knew it would take a while to get his name written on each one (and he only wrote "Mack"). He seemed to like preparing them though. But, he liked the bags at school even more that began to fill up over the course of the week! Since kids go to school different days of the week, most of the goodies were in there from Wednesday on. I am not sure how his teachers keep those cute little hands out of the bags all week. Needless to say he was excited to bring it home, dump it out, and show off his goods! Macy enjoyed the process as well!
Openning Valentine's From Mommy and Daddy and Grandparents
They were so excited to get little cards and gifts from everyone! Macy was jealous of Macklin's school sack of valentines, so we made sacks for everyone in the family!
MOPS and POPS Dinner Party
My wonderful MOPS group put on a really fun night on the 13th! We called it MOPS and POPS and it was a dinner date for parents. Kids got to play in the normal childcare while parents had a date night of Moe's BBQ and a little marriage enrichment. The four couples below were invited to play a "Newlywed Game" in front of the 80-person crowd. I will say that Team Brandt went 6 for 6 on the questions and took home the win! It was very cute and funny. After the game, our director's husband gave a great talk on marriage and serving each other better. I really hope that we make this an annual night for couples!
