Valentine Party and Goodies

Landon's Valentine's Day party at school was a big success. All of the kids really enjoyed passing out their Valentine's as well as looking at all the little cards they each received. All of his classmates really liked the pink play dough, and they were really impressed that Landon had made it himself, they just couldn't believe it! After they all had their "healthy heart" food (grapes, pretzels, popcorn, carrot sticks, you get the idea) they all played Pin the Nose on the Heart Face. They had such a great time playing this game and they thought it was hilarious when the heart nose was way off!

I finally finished making my Valentine's cards for the kids and Tony, but I was really pushing it, especially with Tony's...I literally just finished it a few minutes ago! This week was just not conducive to craftiness, sometimes it just goes that way I guess. Any ways, here are the three cards I put together:

For the kids, just some stamped hearts on little circles. Inside the card Tony and I included 3 little coupons each...one for a night to go get ice cream, stay up an extra 1/2 hour at night, extra 1/2 hour on AIM etc..an idea I got from this blogger. Her's are much cuter, but since I waited till the last minute, it is what it is!

This is the one I made for Tony. Simple, but I really like the way it looks. No special coupons inside for him, but I did write a little thank you for being an awesome husband note inside. Sometimes I forget how good I have it and I need a holiday to remind me to let someone know how much I appreciate and love them. So,Tony, Zoe and  Landon, I love you all,  Happy Valentines Day!

 

Oh yeah, the idea for this card was from the PaperCrafts Jan/Feb 2009 issue, pg. 23!

Here is the Valentine's Day poster the kids made for Tony and I. I thought it was great that they were able to work together on something without fighting! Those of you with kids know that sometimes that is nothing short of a miracle!

I love all your valentines! And the poster the kids did is great. Yes, even when they're older working together is a miracle!
