Valentine's Day

I LOVE Valentine's Day.  It's not really the romantic/roses/etc. stuff that I like...I just love having a day of fun goodies and sharing little happies with people you love.  It's SO fun to me.  I love it all.  It's funny to me that some people hate Valentine's Day.  It's all in good fun and I think it's all so sweet.  As a preschool teacher it's a blast, but it's definitively the craziest day of the year...even more so than Christmas or the last day of school!  This year was Ellington's first year to really get into it so of course that made it even more fun!  

Ellington LOVED her party at school!

These were the little treats Ellington took to her friends.  I loved how they turned out!

After nap E found some goodies waiting on her. :)

Ellington and I gave Daddy some chocolates and E made him some artwork.

Robert gave me a sweet card and a book.  I LOVED getting a book.  I love to read, but always hate spending money on books so I never ever do.  I told him I thought it would be a fun tradition to always get a book on Valentine's.  Maybe he'll remember next year. ;)

We also made Valentine Mickey & Minnie cookies.  Ellington loved these because she could do them all by herself.

The little bag full of Valentine cards from her friends was just like heaven to Ellington.  She went through them all over and over and over.

Robert took his two girls out to supper. :)  After we got in the car after supper Ellington threw her hands up in the air and said, "Happy Balentine's everyone!"  A happy Valentine's indeed! :)

(I must edit to add that this preschool teacher/Mama went to bed at 8:45 last night!!  Yes, I love the day but like I's also the craziest!)


  1. I love Valentine's Day, too! I cooked spagetti for me and Charleigh. I even got us flowers to put on the table :)

    Also, you know you don't have to spend money on books. There is this thing called a library. They just give you books for free.

    Yay for a new post!
