We kicked off things on Thursday morning when Miss Ashby had her Valentine’s party at preschool. She was so excited! After the party, she couldn’t wait to show Andrew and me her Valentine’s bag full of cards, treats and candy. She totally loved her day!
On Friday morning, these two celebrated Valentine’s Day at their school. Before we walked to school, we took a few pictures.
These two make my heart so happy :).
At 2:00 on Friday, we headed to the kids’ school for their Valentine’s parties. Andrew and I split up and did half with one kid and then half with the other. Here I am at Smith’s party. This kid had so much fun!
Bye bye my little love bug! Next stop, K’s class!
Ashby came over with me…you would have thought they hadn’t seen each other in years. #ithadonlybeensixhours #sisters.
That night, we attended our school’s annual family Valentine’s dance. Remember last year? Ashby had been home less than a month and yet, went crazy on the dance floor? This girl LOVES to dance! Well, as soon as we walked in…she was off…
Hahaha! We laugh because she like feels it in her soul!
Ashby, Kensington and Ebby Lee dancing!
Smith and Nixon. Bless their hearts. They tried so hard to look like they knew what they were doing. These two were my FAVORITE to watch! They were just so cute!
Tab, Erika, Andrew and me…we know how to par-ty on a Friday night!
Three Shull girls dancin’!
Y’all…you see our friend Sarah there in the middle? She left the hospital THAT DAY with her brand new baby! Yes! Around 2:00 PM that day, she left with baby girl #3 and was at the school’s dance that night…lookin’ really good if I do say so myself! We love you Sarah (and baby Millie too!).
Friday night at the dance! We had so much fun!
On Saturday after Smith’s basketball game, I took both girls for a pedicure. Sitting there between my two girls, gettin’ all of our toes polished…well, I felt extremely blessed.
Love being a girl mom :).
We left with pretty feet, picked up the boys and headed to Dallas for their Chinese New Year Celebration in the Dallas Arts District. We met up with my parents, Sean and Catherine and had the BEST time! The weather was gorgeous (like 65), so we were really able to soak it all in.

Love these people.
Papa Jay and Lovie let them pick out a little something to commemorate the day.
They were stoked!
The year of the monkey. Please note, Ashby even wore her monkey shoes for the occasion :).
We ended our night with burgers, hot dogs and milkshakes at a really cute little joint in Dallas. Love my family.
It’s blurry and crazy…but this was the best pic I got on Valentine’s morning. The kiddos came down to a festive breakfast, a mini box of chocolates and one little treat. They were super pumped it was Valentine’s Day! They also had made both myself and Andrew a Valentine’s Day card…and placed a dollar in each one. Since they couldn’t drive to the store and get us gifts, they said they wanted us to have money. I mean, I feel like one blessed mama to have these kids :).
Headed to lunch after church :).
Annnnnd…Ashby kept saying that her ear hurt, so I took her to the local urgent care center and they said she had a bad case of…swimmer’s ear. Huh? Kensington gets it a lot during the summer, but a February swimmer’s ear is a first for us. Thankfully, that was all it was (I was afraid it was strep), so Ashby and I hopped on over to the pharmacy (pictured here), waited for her prescription and then headed home.
The kids asked if we could have Japanese Hibachi for dinner (because…let’s face it, they want to eat it on every occasion), so we headed there for our Valentine’s Day dinner.
