Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I know it's a Hallmark holiday but I love Valentine's day!  Jonathan and I went out to dinner and a movie on Saturday night. I can't remember the last time we did that. My parents were in town and babysat while we went to Sal's and then to see One for the Money. It was a wonderful Valentine's day date!

I love decorating for Valentine's day and this year I did just about the same decorations as last year so I didn't take new pictures.

While my parents were here, Adalyn got some extra attention. She got lots of books read to her by papa and grandma.

Papa and Grandma also brought some homemade Valentine's iced cookies that Adalyn thoroughly enjoyed.
  
I decided that Adalyn needed to take Valentine's to her friends at daycare, but I didn't want to do candy/sweets.  I ended up putting some Cuties in cute little bags with little tags on them. Adalyn even helped me...if help meant trying to eat the cuties with the skins on.  I think they turned out pretty cute!
The bags and tags were from Hobby Lobby 30% off.

There are lots of Valentine's because we decided to give the sitter and her older kids Valentine's too!


Here's my precious Valentine this morning. Can you tell she was not happy that I was taking her picture instead of opening her box of raisins?
And this was a happier girl mid-raisin bite! She was pretty serious about the raisins so there were no smiles for mama's camera!

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day!

Cute idea with the cuties and I'm sure fellow Mommies were happy not to toss yet another cheesy paper valentine and store the sucker because seriously: your kid can only handle so much sugar at a time (though Kennedy would challenge that statement!). Was so good seeing your parents - I'm sure Adalyn loved every minute of her time with them. Glad y'all got to go out on a VDay date even if you ended up pewny before weekend's end.
