V-day exclusive

This year valentines day was pretty fun. Since we've been married, we haven't ever really done much to celebrate it. My birthday is just a week later so we usually put our money and efforts into celebrating that holiday (yes, it is an official holiday. What? yours isn't? That's too bad) I'm a big fan of birthday's and am ok with foregoing valentines day in order to make the birthday festivities that much bigger.
Anyways, this year was really fun. In the morning Megan and I went to a library book sale that is the second Saturday of every month. We hadn't been before and didn't know what to expect and it turned out to be so great! They had kid's books for 25 cents and regular books from 25 cents to 1.00 depending on if they were hardback or not! So I got 7 books for 5 dollars!! I would highly recommend taking a trip out to Conyers for this if you are a big reader. They had a lot of books that I have heard about or been wanting to read. I got "The book seller of Kabul" for 1.00!! I was really excited because that is one of my all time favorite books.

After we got back, Debbie, Megan and I all went to the mall to shop a little and for me to get an eye exam. They mostly did the shopping while I got the exam, but I felt like I had shopped through them a little.
When I got home from the mall, Elliot had a surprise for me. He had written 10 little love notes and hidden them throughout the house and I had to go on a scavenger hunt for all of them. (that is what the previous post is all about.) It was so unlike him to do that which made it all the more fun. I loved it!
Here are the two cute boys in my life. I have no idea why Elliot can't ever make a normal face in pictures.
Debbie made a delicious dinner to celebrate and for dessert we had chocolate fondue!!
Graham just wasn't quite sure what to make of the whole day.

Oh Tracy, you are so funny. I was just reading through some of your previous post, and I miss working with you. Do you want to move to Chicago where the weather sucks and work with me, like old times?
Graham is adorable!

What a fun day you guys had! Did you put gel in Graham's hair, it looks longer or different somehow? The last pic of him in the bouncer is especially adorable.
