Love Bug

Valentine's Day was a huge success.
We decided to keep it really low key this year since we all took turns being sick.
We did not want to infect a poor unsuspecting babysitter with our nasty virus.
You're Welcome!
We decided to stay home and celebrate the day as a family.
It turned out to be one of the best Valentine's days ever.
We made homemade personal pizzas shaped like hearts, heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped pb&j at lunch time and homemade heart shaped ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
Doodle woke us up bright and early in the morning with 5 Valentine's each for all of us. She has been crafting in secret for months creating little loves for her family.
She made her brothers love bugs.
They had heart shaped bodies with pipe cleaner leggs and antenea. She made black spots on them and they were the cutest little love bugs I've ever seen.
She had such a good time and was thrilled to give away her gifts.
She is such a loving little girl.
The kids went around all day saying that this was the best day EVER.
I think they were just excited about all the hearts everywhere.
They even said that I'm the best mom in the whole world, several times.
I'm not gonna lie, that felt really good!
Jay even brought me some gorgeous roses, my favorite.
Best Valentines day ever.

This year I participated in a Valentine's exchange on the blogosphere.
In January I was reading Domestic Dork's blog and I loved the idea of a blind Valentine's Exchange, so I signed up!
After a few mix ups, Kimberli and I met on valentine's Day morning to exchange our valentines.
She is such a cute girl and I really enjoyed meeting a fellow mommy blogger.
Thanks Kimberli, you are so sweet!
I forgot to take a picture of the candle holder I made for Kimberli, but look at the cute, cute wooden block she made for me.
I am in love with it.
I am trying to figure out a way to keep it out all year long.
Maybe I'll just have to make a copy cat that will match my kitchen decor.
Something with apples and red...hmmmm
