Every year we hold a Valentine's Day theme party at our house. This year we passed a milestone with the "little cousins" that we have over ~ we read 3 stories and we played a game! When you have a lot of little ones together, there is often no time to sit and listen to a story. It was so sweet to see them all piled up on the couch and enjoying having a silly story read out loud. Honestly, my heart felt so full!
We had 4 little boys and 2 little girls over for the cousin party. We read 3 books, then we made some Valentines, had a little snack and then played a little game with the 4 little boys. We broke our Valentine's card making record as well this year. Each child made some on their own and started to get the idea that they were to give to others, not to themselves. So fun watching their personalities shine through.

We always do a mad dash around the house, frantically looking for items that are not baby safe. Guess we missed the hole punch and the ladies got to clean up some confetti.

You must do as the paper says...
SURPRISE! Look who crashed our party!

|This flubber stuff is weird!|
The day before we had a little party with a few friends. It had turned out to be a snow day, so it was a bit spur of the moment, but they had fun.

Our girls have taken on Valentine's as one of their favorite holidays too, so now we seem to have a tradition of doing a friend's party each year. Valentine's ~ a great time to celebrate how much we appreciate those around us.
