Valentine Fun

Getting ready for Valentine's Day
is one of my favorite things to do!
 
This year I had lots of help.
 
First up...

My helper?  Roo. 
He is my sidekick...
all day,
everyday.
 
I thought he wanted to help,
but it turned out he just wanted to eat the treats.
 
While I packaged the candy,
he was my eye candy.
 
 
Dirty...but cute.
 
Then...."The Valentine Box!"
Annie was my helper here.
 

(inspiration from my sister Auntie Cake)
 
 
 
 
 
with a secret door for Valentines.


And of course the pink uniform shirt!


Ooooo....the boys just want to get their hands on all that ruffly frosting!

 
And then there is the decorating crew.
 
 
 I just set them loose with heart kits.

 
They put a little love EVERYWHERE.

 
 
 
and I do mean everywhere...
 
 
 
Last there are the "secret preparations."

The Valentine school snack box,
 
 
A little puppy love,

 

and a little chocolate.

Since I didn't get Kit anything this year I let him help,
 

And of course...

the balloons.

 
Valentine's Day.
Bring it on...
We are ready for love!

Your house looks very festive! I always forget about balloons. Elijah loves them and I'm sure he would really like it if he got one for Valentines Day. I like how they got to put hearts all around. How do you have sticky on the back, but not have them stick to each other? I may try this next year, if I remember.

Oh, my goodness! What a great Valentine's box! I'll bet Annie was the envy of her class. That is so great and what a mama you are! I'm a middle sister too, but you're way ahead of me in the crafty department.

I'll get Annie had a happy day!

Friend, I don't know if I ever left a hearty congratulations on the wonderful addition of sweet Kit! I have gotten into the most terrible habit of reading posts and signing out without saying a wee hello, or commenting on the most important things---like you have the CUTEST kids on the face of the planet. I will say it forever more..you are a wonderwoman and such a great mama...you can see it in the smiles on your children's faces! Hooray for babies! Hope you are doing well.
