Happy Valentines Day...

Happy Valentines Day! I love Valentines Day! I am determined to make my sons little romantics. What can be wrong with any holiday in which you express your love for others? Some people might say it's commercialized, well you can take it as far as you like it. We have enough angst in life and I truly believe that you should make a little effort to go overboard with love sometimes. Yea its important everyday but isn't it important to really celebrate it sometimes? 

Brett sent me this cute little mini tulips mug from Pro flowers. It was delivered to my office on Friday. The early delivery was due to a mix-up on their side, so he was told that they would be sending me another one today to apologize for their mistake LOL!


We delivered these flowers to Grandma on Saturday...


We gave this one to Gigi on Friday, she likes dragonflies so we picked a little pot with them on it...


We bought our valentine cards this year so I wanted the boys to make cookies to bring to school so they could feel like they made something sweet for all of the important people in their lives.

Josh was excited to cut the package open.


Jacob opened the heart cookie box...


...then he cut his open too.


Anyone can make these cookies they are foolproof or child ready!


See how easy! Yes Josh is still cutting in the background...


He knows its a silly thing ...


We put frosting in the middle, Josh tried to frost but it got a little messy...


 So easy that you don't even need to color your own frosting!


And the frosting comes with these cute sprinkles that we rolled the cookies in!


This is one of the finished smiley hearts...


We used Wilson lollipop bags for the finished cookie and hten attached them to the Valentine pencils that we put on the cards.













Yes of course the cards were Disney Cars! Except for the ones Jacob gave to the girls in his class.

 
 They always get a little silly at the end, it could be from having some samples!


Josh can't seem to smile for the camera without squishing up his face!

 
This morning Brett gave me this pretty necklace from Red Envelope:
The boys were decked out in their Valentines shirts and professed their love for each other...


Joshua wouldn't stop kissing Jacob's hand...


And then it was off to school & preschool to have a Valentine party day! Joshua couldn't wait to give his teachers their gifts he even carried one in...

 

Once he got inside he gave his teachers BIG hugs, so I guess my romance training is working LOL!

Happy express your love day!
