Happy Valentine's Day

Kate has a little party tomorrow in her class and so today we made little valentine's to give out to all her classmates, I saw this cute idea and adapted it a little to supplies I had on hand. They turned out cute, I tried to have Kate do as much as possible, she needed to make 13 so that meant cutting out 26 hearts, she actually cut out about 20 and wrote her name by herself. I think the craft would have been really good if she had only needed to make a few but it seemed to get old real quick. Kate's friend Madeline came over to craft too and I'm not sure my girls were the best behaved so appologies to cute Madeline and maybe just a play date next time. Needless to say we made a big mess but I did have a genius idea and layered my table in paper so that at the end all I had to do was roll it all up and throw it away.

Last night at enrichment we did cake decorating, we have an amazing chef lady in our ward, she brought along another great baker/cake decorator friend and she wowed us by making these frosting roses, Kate really wanted to eat it today.

Sara loves cake/anything with sugar in it and so just couldn't get enough, when I was tring to snapshot Kate and her rose Sara decided to cut herself another piece of cake!!

Found these cute tee's at The Children's Place, cute tee's for my cute girls. If you can't quite tell
from the picture Sara's says - I love being a Lil Sister and Kate's says - I Love being a Big Sister.

Claire, we loved doing the craft with you guys! Kate has amazing stamina considering the attention this required of a 3 year old! She did so great! Poor Madeleine couldn't keep focused. (There are SO many fun toys at your house!) I think she cut out 4 hearts (needed 20) and wrote her name 3 times. I had fun making them though! If I become a craftier mom, Madeleine will probably do better with crafts too. Thanks for having us and sharing your supplies and your cute idea!

the shirts are cute. ,
so what was the middle of the butterfly made out of?

i think i was the only kid (okay so luke was the kid) who didn't hand out candy with their valentine. just a temp tatoo.

the middle was a clothes pin, is that what you call it? in England we call it a peg.

How cute that you made your own Valentine cards. I love it. I'll have to remember that next year. I think Ashlyn would like doing that.
