Happy Love Day!

Yesterday was Valentine's Day!  I like Valentine's Day.  I look forward to getting little goodies for the kids and I of course look forward to my traditional chocolate covered strawberries from Kelly!  Yum! 

Monday night we spent the evening making preparations for the boys' class parties.
We did the brownies for their teachers.  I found the "Shooting For Brownie Points" from a cute blog.
We also tied 50+ friendship bracelets for their classmates.  Making that many bracelets ended up being a lot of work for mom because the boys don't quite know how to braid!  But it was fun and it brought back memories of me making them when I was younger!  And I should give some credit to Kelly, he was a big help too!

The kids were excited to wake up to their balloons and valentines from mom and dad.  I did forget to get a picture of the boys before they left for school.  Ooops!

After school was out and the kids rummaged through their valentines, Kelly and I went out on a date!  We went to dinner and a movie with some friends and we had a great time. Connor babysat (with the help and supervision of Grandma) and we came home to all the children in their jammies.  Connor and Carson also managed to change Jace's diaper!  What a surprise!

When Christmas was over and we were putting away the many decorations, Katelyn asked me what decorations we could put out next.  It dawned on my that the only decoration I had for Valentine's Day was heart shaped door hanger.  So, during the last several weeks I was determined to add to my collection!

The conversation hearts came from The Wood Connection.  Love that place!  And the easiest craft project one can do is a printable!  I got this one from Pinterest.  You just upload it to your computer and send it to your favorite photo lab.  Find a frame and voila, you have a cute craft!

Thanks to my Kohl's Cash, I picked up this cute heart shape wreath!

And my new obsession is Groopdealz.  That is where this cute "Love" banner came from!

So that was how we celebrated and decorated for Valentine's Day! Next up is St. Patrick's Day and I know I don't have any decorations for that!  There may be a trip to The Wood Connection in my future!

So cute Meg! You are a crafty one. Unfortunately, I lack in that category. Even when I see the idea first. I'm just not good at making stuff!

Cute decorations! I always wish I would have done more once a holiday is over. I just feel like I didn't do enough! I should have gotten up early and made heart-shaped pancakes for the kids. Oh well, there's always next year!
