Be My Valentine!

Valentine Party. I was in charge of the valentine party for Henry's class. The good thing about planning this party was that two friends were also doing their kids parties and we shared ideas and even supplies!

I made a simple photo backdrop with clearance polka dot Christmas paper and an old picture frame. The kids and I painted a bunch a hearts and we used them throughout the classroom to decorate.

Our craft were handprint hearts and we decorated bags. 
 The kids ate a snack of red velvet cookies and red Gatorade.

I took a picture of all the kids for their parents. I love this sweet little face!

 We finished the party with a game of shoot the heart bullseye with Lucy's pink bow and arrow. I just put a heart bullseye on my photo backdrop and we took turns shooting it.

(This bow was a Christmas gift and my kids have had too much fun! It is easy to shoot and has a padded arrow so it doesn't dent the walls (when they miss) and doesn't hurt when they shoot each other.... because I don't believe in supervising my kid's free play....)

My favorite part of the party was when I declared it bow and arrow time and all the kids rushed me to go first. I took this as an opportunity to teach a life lesson- LADIES FIRST! Which the girls loved and the boys protested but allowed the girls to go first and then lined up behind them!  My pictures are limited because I was running the show. 12 kids is a lot to handle. God bless the teachers!!

Now Look at one of my friend's party...
Isn't that beautiful!

Our Home Valentine Party. We celebrated with a romantic dinner of Steak, potatoes, salad and oranges. There's nothing sexier than Vitamin C...

My sister and I split half a cow and I've loved going to the freezer every time I needed meat. This steak was as big as Henry and I defrosted 2, we will be having leftovers!

We went around the table and said what we loved about each other and Lucy said she loved me because I wake her up in the morning and Henry said he loves me because I make him the best bean burritos... I am LOVED. 

I hope your day was full of love. We don't glamorize valentine's day because every day is a day of love for us :). 

Tomorrow is Weekly Happenings on the blog and I will catch up on our Great Wolf Lodge skip day and the rest of our weekend/ week! 

God is bigger than this and Jesus Can fix it. 

We love because he first loved us.
