We had a fun and busy Valentines Day weekend! It all started with the Preschool party on Thursday. It was my turn to teach, so we had the party at our house. The kids made Valentine Oreo suckers, ate pizza, decorated bags, and passed out Valentines. I was also doing the oreo suckers for Halle’s school class. Joanna and Angela, being the creative ladies they are, decorated them for me. They turned out so so cute! Thanks gals!
I don’t know what got into me–I was very crafty there for a few days. In addition to the oreo suckers and annual sugar cookies, I made the tutu shirt Halle is wearing. Are you proud of me?
Then came the Kindergarten Valentine Party. With that came more candy.
Saturday was date night. Rusty and I got a babysitter for the evening, and headed down to the temple. I must confess that since being pregnant and having a newborn, we have not been in quite some time. We finally felt like Blake was old enough to be left for the 5ish hours it takes to drive down, do a session, and drive home. We walked up to the door, tried to pull it open, only to find it was locked. Uhh…the temple closes at 4 on Saturdays. It was 5:30. SERIOUSLY???? So we went to dinner at On the Boarder and then just cruised around the mall.
This year I gave Rusty a little Valentine every day the week before the big day. The cheesier the better. Some of my favorites:
“After all this time I’d still CHEWS you.” (attached to a packet of gum)
“Valentine, You’re Dynamite. Will you make my FANTA-sy come true?” (a can of pringles wrapped to look like dynamite and a can of fanta soda)
But my favorite one you can see HERE. Scroll almost to the bottom of the post.
It was so fun to hide the Valentine in his car, laptop bag, etc.
The kids also got Valentines from both sets of Grandparents. We are swimming in chocolate, candy, and baked goods. We ended the day with dinner at the Loveridges. We needed a good excuse to go snuggle baby Khloee again. She is such a doll!
Now I think I need a three day nap to recover. (Blake too!)
