I suppose I will start off this post by saying that I am getting so crafty lately. It’s been fun to work on little projects with the kids. The other day, we went out and collected sticks from the neighborhood. Then we wrote down things we love about each other onto little hearts I cut out from a lunch paper bag, and I strung them from the branches with some red yarn and made a Valentine’s Day centerpiece. I think it turned out quite well, and every meal, V asks me to read them out loud again. Especially the one about him being our big helper.
I also tied some yarn around some jars as decorative candle holders, after I saw it on this new favorite crafty blog.
Today, we had a fun day. I woke up to lovely little love notes all around my house from my sweet husband, and then the kids and I made valentines to take to all their Grandmas… I and then we drove around and delivered them! I had all the pieces out, and they just picked what they wanted to put where. V even cut out most of the pieces himself.
Yes, that is a turtle. V likes to draw. And he decided to make a turtle in that last card. So cute.
When I got home, I was thrilled to see a parcel for my birthday arrived from my best friend in England. And she overwhelmed me with little goodies!!
We even managed to close the day out with some playground time and some Mexican food.
Randy and I had our date last Thursday when a favorite band was in town. We went out to Pei Wei for some lovely Kung Pao Chicken, and then made it out to see The Civil Wars put on an awesome show. So tonight, we’re done tired and we’re calling it a night. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
