Throwback Thursday: Us on March 7, 2012


Henry and I. We had just finished dinner with the kids at O’Charley’s.

Navy really liked his card because it had a puppy on it. He was pretty excited about the Percy train engine he got, too!


Lily got a fun set of press-on nails, lip gloss, and a Littlest Pet Shop animal.

I’m taking him out for dinner (no kids!) next week. It’s a surprise, too!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
