She came home as every first grader should,
filthy from a hard day of play &
a bag full of Valentine's tight in her fist.
She couldn't wait to get to the table to open her bag.
She passed them out to the boys too.
"Bo you can have this Buzz Lightyear one."
"Rocco, here is some candy for you."
Since she goes to a private school
they can give homeade food,
look at these little tarts
filled with jam she got!
She shared so much that Bo grabbed her face
& pulled her over for a kiss!
I was thrilled to have caught it on camera!!!
Dinner time came
& I was excited because I planned
a chocolate fondue dinner!
I thought how fun for the kids
& yummy for me.
(Steak for Kel)
Besides, look what the box says:
Now THAT is the trick.
Whoever came up with the slogan did not really
know what was in the box.
Skewers + Bo =
I have no idea why I did not
see this coming!
I feel so stupid now!
"Bo, why is that balloon losing air?"
"Bo, why are there all these
holes in the table cloth?"
(Which by the way was the first
time in my life I ever bought a plastic
table cloth but I just could foresee
chocolate all over. Smartest thing I did all day)
And then there was Rocco:
and this is only 2 minutes into it.
He went straight into the tub.
Annie & Kelly's faces say it all:
After I said:
"Bo! You almost poked me in the eye!"
I excused Bo thinking it would be much safer,
but then I still found myself saying,
"Bo! Did you seriously just whack me in the
back of the head with the broom while I am
eating? Put it away!"
"Bo! Where on earth did you
get that hockey stick?
Put it back down stairs!"
Oh my :)
At one point Kelly said, "I think we are
beginning to lose control here."
I looked at him & laughed,
"Beginning to? It is gone."
He looked me in the eye,
"Really, do you really think so?"
Annie was the only kid who
really was ready for this :)
The funny thing is even though it was messy
It was a really nice night.
And that is the magic of Valentine's Day :)
