Valentine's Day 2011

We celebrated Valentine's Day three different times this year. First, we attended a Valentine's Day party with our playgroup, hosted by our friends, the Laringtons. The kids each made their own Valentine boxes and Valentine's for each of the kids before the party. Carson wanted to make a robot, and Travis...well, I made him a fire truck box. The kids enjoyed playing with each other, enjoyed a "hearty" lunch, and got some fun Valentine's too!

Next we celebrated on the actual Valentine's day. I'm not the biggest fan of this holiday, so we didn't do anything too special. My boys got me a gift certificate for a pedicure that I'm really excited to use. The boys got to share some special sweets for their gifts.

Carson had a party at school a couple days after. He did a great job getting all his Valentine's ready for his classmates. They passed out their Valentine's, had treats and then got to play some made for a fun day at preschool!

An older sibling of a playgroup friend gave out awards to each of the kids' boxes. Carson was most original and Travis won an award for the best made by mom!

Lunch time!

These were what the kids had for lunch. I just thought they were a cute idea!
