Love Day

This year was fun because Callie had her first Valentine exchange in her preschool class. I saw this really cute idea on Skip to my Lou for her Valentines and Callie & I had a great time putting them together. Callie especially loved putting the stickers on the butterflies!

Jeremiah's mom sent the kids each a card with a little heart sucker. The kids loved it & so did I! I can remember getting Valentine's cards from one of my grandmothers and I've always thought that's the kind of stuff I want to do when I have grandkids so it was fun for me to see how excited my children were when they got their Valentines. Jack's card had a rhyme about a dinosaur & I've read it to him a million times! Ellie was just as happy about her sucker as the bigger kids were!

Before we went to bed on Friday night Jeremiah & I set the table & put little valentine's treats on ours & each of the kids' plates - even Jonny's. This is his 2nd Valentine's Day with us! That's why this year I asked Jeremiah to get extra strawberries for the dip he makes me every year. Valentine's Day was low-key. Jeremiah & I made delicious stuffed french toast for breakfast & spent the rest of the day doing house work. A month earlier we'd brought the rest of our boxes (about 15-20) into our bedroom because I'd thought that maybe if they were there I'd unpack a little at a time. Wrong! After a month of tripping through a box maze during the night & having our bedroom look like heck I finally got it all unpacked & out of there. Unfortunately that meant making a mess out of my front multi-use room again! Oh well. Someday I'll get it together!

I love the butterfly valentine's. We may have to steal the idea next year... that is if I can remember a whole year later...doubtful.

Those are the cutest valentine's! And it is so much cooler that you and callie could make them together. passing out homemade valentine's vs. store bought--there is no comparison. and i love getting to see pictures callie, ellie, and jack!
