all around (Love Actually)
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Ours was very nice.
Thanks for the sweet words on Knox & Sloane’s Valentine that I posted yesterday afternoon. I think several people commented about having to do a double take before the noticed what their onesies said
Thought I’d post a few pictures from yesterday
He loves to look at her…
Not sure what Knox is doing, but his face cracks me up in the picture on the left.
I put together a little Valentines for them
I didn’t decorate really this year because I’ve not unpacked seasonal stuff. I did post the pillows I got this year the other day, here. These are a few things around the kitchen. Who doesn’t need heart shaped marshmallows and Target mini cupcakes? Don’t worry, I do have some homemade treats I’ll post later, in the next day or two
The babies got fun treats from my mom. Unfortunately, someone else, besides Knox & Sloane, will have to eat those cupcakes that she made, haha.
Speaking of, how cute is the cupcake holder? It holds them down in the inside as well…
Remember how I mentioned I will be sharing a recipe? We took white chocolate fudge to my OBs office yesterday. YUM. I’ll get the recipe posted soon. The babies had fun playing with everyone.
Brent got me a few goodies, which included roses & cookies from Mrs. Fields.
I got him a few things, but I think his favorite was from the babies They attempted to make him handprint hearts. They kind of look more like flowers, but it’s the thought that counts, right? They really wanted to grab things as quick as they could, once the paint was on their hands. Therefore, I couldn’t get them to turn their hands in quick enough to shape the heart. Still pretty sweet.
I’ve actually since this project for a few years now. I thought this would be a good time to try it out. Probably a bit easier with older kiddos. All I used was canvases & finger paint
and a lot of wet paper towel. The nice thing about these canvases (I got them at Wal-Mart. They are 8×10 & thin.), if you mess up, you could wipe off with a wet paper towel or just a wet towel. You had to do it pretty quickly, though. You can probably see where I did some wiping, but in person, it mostly looks clean white. Sloane, as you can see was all over the place, grabbed the canvas, but I was able to wipe most of it off. I will say, though the finger paint said “washable”, I washed the load twice and it did not come out of the towel I used or Sloane’s shirt : / Yes, I know now to do something like this while they are only in their diaper 😉
Brent and I went to one of our favorite restaurants on Saturday night to “celebrate” Valentine’s with a nice dinner. No, he doesn’t typically where razorback belt buckles, but it’s more comical and he liked to sneak it in lately.
Hope you all had a wonderful day!!
