Our Valentine's

Anna, Brian and Carter on their way to breakfast at preschool with Daddy.

The traditional holiday cookie decorating. Seriously my kids beg for these cookies on every holiday. I wonder if it has to do with the sugar consumption when decorating. Or it could be the yummy cookie for dessert every night. Either way we all have a great time and enjoy our masterpieces when done.

I'm not opposed to the store bought cards, but my kids really aren't into any characters and we have fun making our own valentines. I love Callie's this year. We bought some white cardstock, several different pieces of scrapbook paper, and a big heart punch. She punched hearts out of all of the scrapbook paper. We took the cardstock and folded it in half, layered 3 hearts on top of one another, and sewed them on the card. You then fold the hearts out and end up with an adorable 3 dimensional card.

She handwrote notes to each of her classmates on the inside of the card.

The littles decorated their cardstock with stamps and stickers.

And 10 year old boys. I'm not sure what they do for Valentine's but Jack just wrote to and from on his plain white cardstock- done!

Valentine's Day will be low key for us this year. Carter is having his eye surgery that day so please keep us in your prayers.
