Lookin' So Crazy in LOVE

Last year, I fell in LOVE with Valentine's Day...and this year was no different. I don't think I've ever really appreciated the greatness of this Hallmark holiday until I had Quinn. (I think because my birthday is so close!?) Now, I love celebrating with him, and I love having another day to celebrate with my husband! So...onto the celebrating!...
We woke up to gifts...Quinn was so excited to get his Mac from CARS...and just oohed and ahhed when he saw it in the bag. It was cute! He also got a Cars book, some socks and some cool dinosaur things since he's very in to dinosaurs right now!
Matt did a great job spoiling me this year! ... I got LOTS of yummy candy (even a box of chocolates that lights up!!!), 2 AMAZING cards (my favorite part) and a mug that I've been talking about for some time! I LOVE IT!
I got Matt a cool Spider-Man shirt (see below), a "work shirt" (button up) and a tea pot! His new found love for hot tea makes me laugh! ...

We had a fun day...shopping and eating lunch together. Quinn was quite the cutie in his Valentine's shirt!

I love my Valentines!!!

After a restful afternoon, Matt and I got ready for our night out. Sweet Jamie came over to be Quinn's Valentine date for the eventing, and Matt and I went to our church's Valentine's Banquet. It's always fun to get dressed up!
We had such a great time with some friends from "The HITS" (our Life Group...more on the name later), and laughed until our faces hurt!
{Carrie & Eric, J.R. & Margie, Brad & Remy, James & Amy...}



...And, me with my crazy Valentine...




We took our annual Valentine's Banquet foot picture...
{P.S. Could my foot be any more white!? Is it too early to start tanning!?}

And posed with the girls!
This picture cracks me up!...We were getting ready to take a whole group picture, and I'm sure Matt Poe was doing something nutty! See how every one is smiling at him...BUT ME! SO FUNNY!...

But, the group pic was a success...and oh so fun!...

The guys...We laughed so hard at how much leg Matt chose to show! ... He's such a mess...

Our Two-Five Fam...

And, my sweet friend, Carrie...


Minus the hard-to-dance-to Jazz band, we had such a great time with our friends! ...And, I can't wait to get that "tummy ache laugh" again next year!
