Happy Valentines Day! The week prior in passing, I mentioned to the kids that we should have our own family Valentines party, no formed ideas, just a thought.
Finley had been sick earlier in the week and almost had to miss his school Valentines party, “But that’s ok, we’re having a family Valentine party,” he told us as we tucked him in. That comment was the literal reason I included cupcakes in the 4 snack foods that I bought with Poppy after dance class on a Saturday morning. Gotta make that sensitive heart feel special.
The day of Valentines, we surprised the kids with a Valentines Day party. Maria and Finley played outside while the little two napped, Andrew cup out red hearts, I hung them and I put out 4 snack foods I bought Trader Joes on top of a white table cloth I retrieved from the garage. I ripped up some of the roses Andrew had gotten me that morning and sprinkled them on the table.
I told them to dress up for their party, and they looked at each other and grinned, Poppy pulled out all her dresses onto the floor.
And they all did. They walked out and looked around at the 99 cent store streamers and oddly cut paper hearts and squealed.
Happy Valentines Day!
Finley told us his pink lemonade was, “My coffee, no beer, no lemonade.”
Our peach tree even decided to join us in the holiday spirit and exploded into blooms of pinks and fuchsia. We stop and gaze at it everyday. We look for little bees climbing inside with their hooked arms, pollinating the blossoms to ensure peaches.
“God is so cool,” the boys always say when they see the bees pollinating.
Love is in the air, I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines spreading and receiving love <3
Andrew and I went out to dinner and movie after, which was so fun, too. We love Valentines, day.
