YES DAY, Valentine's DAY, and President's DAY

We recently got a book from the library titled /Yes Day/ by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld. Also author and illustrator of/ Duck Rabbit/. During our reading time the past few weeks this has been one of our favorite books. Hezekiah asked if we could have a Yes Day and I agreed. He decided that Yes Day would be on Saturday, so we celebrated Yes Day this past weekend. The book is cute, because the little boy asks for pizza for breakfast, asks to not clean his room, asks to stay up late, to have a food fight, to get ice cream, and to use hair gel. So every answer to his questions (of course within reason at our house) was YES! The boys got up Saturday morning and asked Page for bacon egg and cheese crossiants and Fun Dip for breakfast. So the answer of course was YES. Afterward they asked for ice cream, but it was too early for the ice cream store to be open, so we said Yes, but after lunch. Mainly their questions all resounded around food. But we all played and stayed at home all morning, played what they asked us to play and went and had ice cream after lunch, stayed up late and watched Buzz Light year. Yes day was a lot of fun and I think yes day will become an addition to our calendar each year.

We also celebrated Valentine's Day.  Page and I had a nice date Friday night. The Valentine Heart came for a visit on Friday too and left gifts for the kids in the garage. The Valentine Heart is always a lot of fun!

Today is President's day and Hezekiah informed me of that this morning. He said, "Yes, it is George Washington's birthday and well, that other guy." Crack me up. I said, "Maybe Abraham Lincoln or someone like that?" Hezekiah said, "Yeah!" Too funny. Anyhow, one good thing President's day is for, is for having the day off school, sleeping in and playing with friends.
