Valentine’s Day was going to be a pretty big day with a guest post going live on another blog, Kyle’s due date, and a plan for a big dinner night in with my husband that night. I needed another distraction though. Well, maybe I didn’t. But I kinda did. And I love parties. 🙂
We started with a quiet breakfast. There’s just something about waking up to a decorated table that makes my girls excited. Well, that and drinking milk in martini glasses. Gotta love de-cluttering finds. 🙂
Heart Pancakes with strawberries – easy breakfast. *Whew!* Along with a handmade card from me, and roses from their daddy.
So, I’ve learned, if I want my girls to have a Valentine’s Party, I just
have get to throw one.
Several gals from my church with little ones, and semi-big home schooled ones joined my girls and I for the “big” party at our church Thursday morning. (According to Chloe, breakfast was the “little” one.) It was a blast. But then anytime you have 13 kids from 2 months old all the way to 7 or so, it’s bound to be, right?
Starbucks frappacino bottles – these guys have been used for every party I’ve had in the past 2 years. I get my straws here.
What can I say? My girls are hopeless romantics.
We played a few games – “Make a giant stuffed animal pile relay” and “a Southern Snowball Fight”
(real creative names, huh?)
I can’t say enough about these paints – I LOVE them! They don’t drip, poison if eaten, stain if spilled, or make any sorta mess. 🙂
Make your own Valentine Mail Bags…
…Then fill them with Valentines for your friends. 🙂
