Feliz Día de San Valentín

This was one of the best Valentine's Days that I can think of. There are a couple of memories that I want to record here.

1. Diego ask me several times a day leading up to V-day "Cuánto es más que once?" (How much is more than eleven?" I would obviously respond "doce" (twelve.) To which he would reply "Te quiero más que doce." (I love you more than twelve.) To him that is A LOT! :)

2. Diego looked up while he was coloring on Valentine's Day and said "je t'aime" which means "I love you" in French. Smart little sucker. It told me a minute to figure out what he said. His French is already better than mine.

3. Diego was so excited to give me the card that he made me and hid under the bed. It was supposed to be a secret so he told me that it had hearts on it but he couldn't tell me anything else. Oh, and not to look under the bed.

4. Mateo... well Mateo was his usual active, fun-loving, life is a fiesta self. He is such a funny little guy. I know that he is destined to be the life of the party.

5. We spend the afternoon at the Children's Museum where Diego got to see his first IMAX with dinosaurs. The first thing he told me when he got out was that he wasn't scared- which pretty much means he was. Mateo ran (and I mean ran) around and had fun.

6. After dinner we made a chocolate fondue, which the kids, of course, loved.


  1. It looks like a beautiful Valentine's Day. Diego is a sweet and smart boy - it's awesome that he made you a card.

  2. sounds like a lot of fun! you talk a lot about diego's spanish and language skills. just wondering if mateo is progressing at the same rate? b/c i have one of each, i'm always wondering if it's a boy/girl difference or just a people difference! oh and i wish we had a decent children's museum here!

  3. I love that first one best, so cute "I love you more than 12....."
    I didn't know there was a children's museum up there. Or maybe it's just nowhere near my in-laws, and that's why I don't know about it.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful day, and love that they liked your chocolate fondue!

  5. Huh, so I was trying to find you in the list of blogs I follow and discovered I wasn't following you for some reason. That mistake has now been fixed. Now to link to your blog for an upcoming post.
