All Things Valentine


We made these heart butterflies.  The girls had so much fun playing with them that they got destroyed quickly.


A Valentine for the birds - instructions found here.


Valentine's morning goodies


Starting a new tradition - candlelit dinner on Valentine's Day.  The girls were beyond excited for Jared to see it when he got home from work.


It was delicious!  And the girls stayed in their seats for the whole meal (that is a rarity - Lera is usually up after 2 minutes).


Chess took this picture of Jared and me.


I made these cute pops for my nieces and nephews.


Chess helped me make heart-shaped sugar cookies.  She thinks flour tastes good.  Silly girl.


Bean bag toss game for our cousins Valentine's party.


Practicing for the "cookie walk" before the cousins got here.


They're here!








Lera doing the bean bag toss.  She would wind-up like she was going to throw it, then run up and put it in the bucket!


Chess pinned the nose on the puppy perfectly!


Cookie walk


Holy sprinkles.




We ended the party with hot chocolate with homemade heart marshmallows and then some playing outside.

Love you sisters and kiddos!

The Valentine party was a blast. I love your idea of a candlelight dinner for the family! The first picture of the girls with their butterflies is funny. What does Chess have on her eyes? And poor Lera looks so sad!
