My Funny Valentines

I have had a great day spending time with my three Valentines today. We have actually been Valentining for two days now. Evan had a party at school Friday, and it was lots of fun. The teachers treated the class to pizza and all kinds of other treats. They are always so sweet to include EG, and of course, she thinks she is big stuff in there with the kindergarteners! I remember the days when I was in school and our class covered shoe boxes with construction paper hearts for our Valentines. One of Evan's creative teachers made these...

Is that not the cutest thing? It included a working door and flag. It also had his address on the other side to help with learning it. I thought it was so creative.


This is Evan with his aid, Ms. Myrie. He LOVES her, and she is so good with him. I am so thankful for her!


Evan and Ella Grace also racked up on the candy. They had Valentines from both sets of grandparents in addition to the haul they got at Evan's school. They (mainy EG...she is a candy fan) had eaten so much candy by Friday night, and it wasn't even the official day yet!

Ella Grace with the dog Derek's parents gave her. It sings the song "Shout." That is like my least favorite song EVER! It's quite annoying, but she loves it! SIGH! And, yes, that IS candy on her mouth.


Hallmark made a small fortune off the Horton's.


Instead of candy, Derek and I got Evan and Ella Grace each a toy. Evan got a new DVD that he LOVES, and Ella Grace got these...

Needless to say, she has been clip clopping around here for two days. :)


We ended the night with going to our Saturday night service at our church. How better to spend Valentine's Day?! For the first time, Ella Grace went to her class and stayed the entire service. We then went and ate Mexican food, and the kiddos chowed down. I can always count on them eating well there.

I sure love my Valentines!

My heartbreaker

My sweeter than candy girl

Not pictured is my big Valentine, and I'm pretty sweet on him, too! :)

Thank you so much for that wonderful post. It is amazing how life changing those few words are... you're child has autism. Never thought it would happen to us. I can not tell you how nice it is to hear from someone who faces the same trials that we are facing. Thank you for your kind words and thoughtful advice.
