Valentines Day

We have all sorts of plans for tomorrow. Of course, instead of spending money on jewelry, chocolates, books, or other things I just booked our family getaway at Great Wolf Lodge. I'm so excited that I got my husband the Sony Cyber-Shot for Christmas right now. (Purchased for 1/3 of it's price on Black Friday, Whew!) He loves that camera for so many reasons! One being you can take still photos WHILE recording video. How cool is that? But as we plan a trip to a water park I can' help but appreciate that we have a waterproof camera. It's small and perfect and I won't freak out even if it did fall in the water! Plus how fun would it be to record that first trip down the waterslide?

Today we made some of these for Preschool friends. There were so easy with the FREE printables and my boys loved helping too!

I decided to actually do a little more for Valentines too. So in the morning the boys will wake up to this:

Valentines Mailbox

No I didn't decorate the mailbox. I know, I could have done a million cute things - but I'm not going overboard here. Simple and cute. There is a car each for the boys in there. I was going to get playdoh, but I got lazy tonight.

I also made this banner in a few minutes (15) for a little more decor:

Valentines Banner
Inspiration: Rebecca Cooper on Pinterest

I even saved myself time and cut out hearts around buttons on the paper. (Some buttons are real and some aren't - can you guess which ones?) Don't mind my empty IKEA frames. I hung them two weeks ago in hopes that it would motivate me to fill them. Still hasn't happened. I'll show you when they're done.

Happy Valentines Day everyone. I hope you all have a day full of fun and love and get to spend it with the best of friends and family!
