We had a simple day at home today celebrating.
It started off with four mom friends and our thirteen offspring at 9 am! We had heart pancakes and heart strawberries and all kinds of other goodies. The kids all got to hang out and play for the morning.
We also did a Valentine exchange with the kids. A mixture of homemade and store-bought. There are SUCH cute ideas for home made Valentines. We had adorable sugar cookie pops and these cuties. However, there is the good ol’ fashioned box of Valentines thing that cannot and should not be ignored. My kids just love standing at the row at Target picking from the gazillion choices of little cards. They totally dig ripping apart and piecing together their little treasures….(and I am so
cheap thrifty that we always buy at 90% off and save for the next year).
It was a great morning. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends around who homeschool their crew as well.
After a nap and a full afternoon of studies, we partied for the second time with the family. For starters, Papa Murphy’s heart pizza. Because who DOESN’T love heart shaped pizza?? It tastes so much better, right?
I decorated the table all fancy schmancy with things from around the house. I also pulled out my stash of Valentines party things that I bought last year at Target. I got the whole set up for about $4.00. Add in some candlelight and it just makes everything extra special and twinkly.
We had lots of hand made love notes.
and we ended the night with little cakes…
…and some little treasures that I picked up during the after Christmas toy clearances.
Happy Love Day.
Hope yours was amazing.
