My birthday/Valentine's Day

My birthday was February 10th. I hate to even type out that it was my 37th birthday....that seems AWFULLY close to 40. But it is what it is. It was a typical Tuesday....take Adelyn to school, take James to All Stars class, tutor in the afternoon. BUT, I did get to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant with my favorite people! 
Shrimp burrito and a MargaResa :) And James's army guys. 

Adelyn's Valentine's Party was Thursday. 

They played :30 games and rotated. Here she is getting popcorn thrown in her mouth. 

James's party was Friday. They had a photo booth with props. The mustache cracks me up!

We call him Sweet and's the sweet side of him

Friday night we had friends over for dinner

The kids decorated cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles. These two have known each other since birth!
The four of us attended a birthday party and then ran errands. We never all 4 run errands together.... I don't know why I thought this was so much fun! We got the dogs a swanky new dog bed from Costco. Who am I kidding? It's for the kids!

We gave the kids little gifts on Valentine's morning. James got Dipper....a character from Planes Fire and Rescue that he's wanted for a while now. Think he likes it??? (Adelyn got a praise and worship CD....she loves her own CDs)

On Saturday night, Seth and I had tuna steaks, risotto, and brussel sprouts. I set a table by the fire and we enjoyed a lovely date night Valentine's dinner in. :)
I love him!

We took the kids to the Circus! Adelyn had been to a smaller company's circus two years ago and James had never been. 

We started off with dinner at The Varsity. "Whad'ya have??" I am not a huge fan of their (greasy) food, but for Seth, it's a tradition to eat there anytime you're in downtown Atlanta. The kids got cherry Coke (gasp!), a naked dog, and fries. Plus we all shared a Frosted Orange and a peach pie. Off to the gym I go tomorrow ! :)

Horrible, blurry family shot. We had great seats!

Those are ladies dancing in the clear globes

The elephants were our favorite! (well, the girls....Seth and James liked the motorcycles)
