i heart VD

friday around 10:30am, i hosted a valentines playgroup at our house. i was super excited about it, as well as the mabster. i told her that both abby's friends and mommy's friends were going to come over so that we could play and party. she wanted to get ready as soon as she woke up. it was the perfect day for it considering the weather was unseasonably warm in the mid-upper 60s. i made the hubster set up the huge bounce slide for the kids so we were set. here's a pic of the girls enjoying some quality mommy time...i ordered 4 pizzas and everybody either brought a dish or chipped in money for the pizza. it was perfect, and we had enough to feed an army. all the moms fixed their kids a plate, and then we fed ourselves. we chatted while letting the kids play, and it was amazing how awesome the kids were being. i couldn't believe it. i was worried that we'd all be crammed, fights would break out, and meltdowns would occur. luckily since the weather was great, some got to spill out into the backyard. the man cave was untouched. no damage done. :)meanwhile inside, we had an arts and crafts table where the kids could make a special heart with cute little arm and legs attached. everyone knows that as a parent, you are a sucker for your kid's art. i know carson (or should i say, karla) had a blast making a valentine heart for daddy. and check out the fred...how stinkin' cute is that face?also, i started setting up all of the valentine goody bags that i got for the kids. everyone brought a special valentine and dropped them into each other's bags. the whole process made me remember just how much i use to love doing that as a little girl. now i get to watch my girls experience the same thing. some of these moms went all out, and i must admit that i had a ton of fun raiding the mabster's bag once it was all over with.overall, everyone shared, played, and got along great. i'd like to believe it's because everyone has reached the ultimate comfort level with each other (both moms and kids). everyone already knows each other as well as our kids, and can honestly call each other friends. i had the best time, and i can't wait to host many more. hope everyone had a happy valentine's day!

It looks like you guys had a blast at this playdate Kimmie! However, everytime I read the title I think that you love Venerial Diseases. . .

We had a blast, too and Tre LOVED the valentine that "Carson" made for him. It is hanging on our refrigerator. I still haven't eaten all of the candy from his goodie bag yet....
