If you look carefully you can see our roof to the right of the big tree in the middle, so we are REALLY close to the school where the good sledding is. Here is a view from the bottom. Trestin likes the mini hill on the left side, where the rest of us like the one on the right. You get the whole thing, and there was a jump from a mound in the snow that we would get air on. It was so fun!
Cheese! Going down as a train
Wipe Out! But he's smiling so we're good!
Aleksia sporting her pink, white, and red clothes for one of the days. I made the girls matching skirts, and used my machine and freezer paper to paint a cute V-day picture on shirts for the girls. With noisy socks of course!
And no outfit at our house is complete without a hair bow these days!
The boys wanted nothing cutesy, so they got shirts from Old Navy
Picture taken while trying to get a picture of her in her "pink, white, and red clothes". It cracks me up every time!
Sorry you can't see her cupcake with a heart on top like a cherry on her shirt. The baby got in the way. She's all about the babies!
On the day to make cookies and give to neighbors
I frosted the cookies and would load them on a plate, then my 2 helpers would decorate them!
Cookies already to go be delivered to friends' houses
Making hair bow Valentines for class. "You're as pretty as a flower Valentine!" with a hair bow attached. The boys in their classes got "You stole my heart Valentine" and a wooden heart was painted and written on like a conversation heart and a pin was glued to the back.
For the last day, which was Valentine's Day, I had gotten cheap-o buckets from Walmart and cut every one's names out of vinyl and put on their bucket so we know who's is who's. Then filled it with little goodies and candies and put them on the fireplace for them to find the that morning.
Another conversation block. The kids even got to paint and make some one day to add to our Valentines decor!
I've started a monthly "Craft Night/Day" and this was our first project. I cut a 4x4 post and turned it into this! Turned out pretty cute!
I love having a mantel to decorate! I found a Valentine's Count Down online, so I made a felt heart garland to put each day's note in.
