A Valentine Recap...

What a great weekend!  
On Friday my sister came home from school and we took the kids to the park (I'm a nanny) to take some Valentine's Photos for their parents.
This is Tyler after coming down the slide...
Here they are together.  Aren't they cute?!
On Saturday afternoon, my sister and I went over to my Aunts house to have a fun lunch with our cousins. 
I'm in the middle, and my sister is on the far right.  The others are my fabulous Aunts and cousin!
Aunt Susie made us wear these hilarious red cowboy hats.  She is always coming up with the funniest themes for parties. 

After the cousins lunch, I went home and Vince had candles and rose petals all over the apartment (I later started a small fire in the kitchen because of one of these candles!)
He had written me the sweetest letter I've ever read on stationary from our hotel in Paris.  Then he framed it with our plane tickets and sweet memories of our trip.  It was so great.
We had some champagne before heading over to my parents house for dinner. 
My dad's birthday is Valentines day, so we usually do something with my family.  My family is awesome and we have so much fun together.  This is my dad wearing the cowboy hat and my  aunt told him he could be "broke back Gary".  He didn't like that!
We got TWO sets of our china at our engagement party from a family friend, and it finally came.  We opened it and I am SO happy we registered for it.  It's just so pretty!
The morning after Valentines day I made us a yummy brunch (with Trader Joes multi grain pancake mix.  It's awesome!)
After brunch I went to see "He's just not that into you" with my family.  It was so great!  Every girl in the world (single or not) should see it.  I loved it so much that I made Vince go see it with me again later that night!  I have been known to see the same movie twice in one day.  
I have never ever ever liked Scarlett Johansson, but I dislike her even more now.  
UGH.  Just see the movie and you'll understand.  WHAT is with her obsession with nasty colored lipstick?!

I had the same feeling about SJ. She made me want to throw something at the screen in this movie!
