A treat, sibling love and 81 Valentines!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Oh how I love this day– next to Christmas and the Fall season this is my favorite time of the year and guess what? It’s not because I’m married and I’m expecting my husband to buy the chocolates, the bears, the flowers and my favorite perform { hint, just in case ;) } it’s because I love making all the goodie bags and treats for the kids! Yea I’m crazy right? I know– my husband told me that like five times last night while I was stuffing and tying 81 Valentines :)

I planned on doing all handmade Valentines this year for the kids but I made the mistake of taking my boys to the store with me one day and they begged for all the cool looking Valentines and candy so IĀ  gave in. Still with more store-bought stuff than I wanted– I still managed to make them a little special :

and here are my two oldest boys heading to school– you see that purple heart in my oldest hand– that’s a note to his little “friend” ;) He didn’t think that I saw but I did– it just said ” You’re the coolest” with some sticky hearts

and then the two youngest ones: My little M and KJ— KJ is super happy today because I”m letting today be a FREE day from school and he get’s to party and enjoy his day with old daycare/ granny’s house buddies!

and a tasty little treat that I got from It’s a Crafty Life— this was so easy and fun for the kids to do!

What are you planning to do this Valentine’s Day— my lovely husband already surprised me with the new Twilight movie for tonight– can’t wait!

Will you be my Valentine? {diy Valentines Inspiration}

Christmas is gone, New Years is gone and now it ‘s time for another one of my favorite holidays!

Valentine’s Day!!

This year I’m skipping the store bought Valentine and being crafty. 4 kids x 3 classes + 1 home school group= 70 Valentines! With no time to waste–I am starting to pull inspiration now and working on them asap!

Here are my picks for each kiddo:

My Oldest: Something simple and easy– and still makes him look cool :)


My middle son: He’s a simple guy-so this is just right for him


My youngest : This will be a good one– then they can use the shovel for our play-dates at the park!


My sweet M: for her play group


I’m hoping to start on these soon– this is just another thing to add to my growing “To Do” list.

What are making for your little ones for Valentine’s? And when are they too old to bringĀ  goodies to their class? If it was up to me, I would continue till High school :)
