Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Jeff have earned the title of Best Aunt and Uncle of the Year (a title that I encourage the other aunts and uncles to fight for...). They hosted a Valentine's Day sleepover for Ryan, Jack, Vance, and Vaughn last night.
Vance and Vaughn came down with colds during the week and I was fearful that they wouldn't be able to attend, but a Valentine's Day Miracle occurred and they were healthy enough to go.
This was Vance's first sleepover and he was so excited.
Their house was decorated so cute, Stephanie brought a ton of toys home from work for the kids to play with, they made heart shaped pizzas, pink pancakes and pink cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and brought baskets of Valentine's gifts to take home.
Vance: "This is the best night of my life!"
Justin and I went out for dinner and tried to remember the last Valentine's Day that we went out. I'm thinking maybe college? It's been a long time. We had to remind ourselves to eat slowly and we did. It was a nice break for us and we are very thankful for it. We figured Vaughn was a little to young for a sleepover, so we picked her up after dinner. She had a good time with the older guys and didn't want to leave.
We slept in until 8:00 this morning, which is super later for us. Even on weekends we're up by 6:30. We went and had breakfast with Charity and Mark before picking the kiddos up. Holy cow, Vance is going to be talking about this night for a long time.
Here's a picture that Stephanie took of Vance before going to bed.
Again, a big Word Up to Stephanie and Jeff for doing this. Last Valentine's Day sucked for us and we were due for a good night out. Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!
I should also add that Justin sent me flowers - three bouquets of tulips for Valentine's Day. They are beautiful!
