But Valentine's Day was on Saturday this year; Tyce had a merit badge midway for Scouts and Bryce went to help with an Eagle Scout project. Then Tyce had his solo and ensemble competition scheduled for the afternoon.
It all made my heart-shaped preparations a little more . . . difficult.
Tyce's duet partner forgot his instrument. So they couldn't perform, sadly. Ugh. I was really disappointed because they had practiced quite a bit and sounded good. But I will admit that it freed up our day.
We skipped the breakfast festivities and had dinner plans that night, so I did my best to fit in a little party for lunch. I got to make love-ly sandwiches and tie balloons to chairs. I was happy.
The kids got Valentine's Day books from Grandma Judy and Grandpa Al, which was a real treat! Bryce got Mary a Hannah Montana tin of popcorn.
I just L-O-V-E my family.
