As most of you know the yearly Father Daughter dance is one of the most precious days. To see Charli and Curtis get dressed up for one another makes my heart melt. They want to please the other and look fancy as Charli would say.
This is how Charli picked for her hair to be done this year. I'm not very talented in that area and sadly the rain did not help much.
Aren't they just adorable? Her excitement for this day was so sweet. She wanted to give him gifts and he brought her home a rose. This is the stuff that every little girl dreams of.
They went dancing for a bite then ended their night by eating out at Charli's favorite place, Chuy's.
Charli's class had a Valentine box contest and she decided to make a puppy this year. I honestly was not prepared to help with a big box this year but we made it happen one Sunday afternoon during nap time.
She just loved how it has a bow and tutu. I glued most of the items while she cut and held pieces together.
She actually won the contest surprisingly too! She was so excited when I arrived at her class party.
I made these last minute scarves for the second grade teachers. Obviously I did not know their full names so I went with a one letter monogram.
Curtis has been wanting a pair of casual shoes for a while so I decided to give him something he needed rather than chocolates or such. (Don't mind that I am still new at this stuff and purchase the wrong size. But thanks to Finish Line for mailing the correct to us!)
I pretty much refuse to spend $4 on a useless bag and remembered that I had kraft paper so I made this corny little design. I tried to think of reasons that CB would say too. But when she got home from school she wrote some of her own reasons.
Valentines morning I woke up while he was in the shower and rushed outside to put this on his truck.
You know it's funny ;)
Curtis and I spent the Saturday after Valentines Day in Nashville. We went shopping then out to eat at Stoney River Steak House, then had breakfast at Loveless Cafe. I swear that I am going to get better at taking pictures of him and I together. I just typically put away my phone when we have a lone time. I could not have asked for a better gift then time well spent together and a full nights of rest.
