Happy Valentines Day!!

I had planned to get this post up first thing this morning, but it’s been one of those crazy days.  The kids only had half days of school.  After getting the last one dropped off, I only had an hour and a half until the first one was due back home.  Crazy.  I had to hurry out and grab some last minute Valentine goodies for them.  Then after getting everyone picked up, we ran out to get lunch.  The day continued on just as busy but I won’t bore you with the details.  I am finally getting time to sit down and get this posted.

I don’t know about you, but Valentines Day is one of my VERY favorite days of the year.  We actually celebrate “Love Month” all of February.  I love it.  We all focus on showing each other just how special we think each other is.  I will share our Heart Attack door with you another day.  It’s one of our favorite traditions.

I really wanted to make the kids frosted sugar cookies because they LOVE them.  I found this recipe and couldn’t wait to try it.  Oh my goodness… they are so good.  I might have had one for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dessert after dinner.  Sad, huh?  They really are so good.  You can head over to my food blog to grab the recipe.

Yesterday afternoon Kendall and I worked on her class valentines.  I realized that this is the last year for her to do them for school.  She enters middle school next year.  So hard to believe.  I am not sure that I am ready for all these new chapters that are getting ready to start for the kids.  Kendall going to middle school next year, Noah going to high school and Logan starting his senior year.  It just can’t be.  I realized this year that I really NEED to document our everyday life and happenings because those are the things I am going to miss the most one day.

Back to the school valentines…

We took a quick break to snap a picture of us together while we were working on them…

It was only fitting that she make everyone a rainbow loom bracelet for her cards.  She went on Pinterest and found this free printable card to use.  So perfect.

  1. Those are the cutest Valentine cards ever! And what a great idea for her to make everyone a bracelet. She’s so thoughtful, girl, but I know you know that. You really should blog more often…yours is one of my very favorites to read! I always love your pictures and such. :) Please blog about your heart attack door…I think I remember what it is, but I would love a refresher. ;)

    Hope y’all enjoy your long weekend!
