Feeling the Love.

It's no secret that I love Holidays in general.
I love a good excuse to spoil my kids and T, of course.
I love making the valentines,
dressing the ladies in red and pink,
and crafting as many cute things we can.
And this year we've found some fun ideas!
We decided to make these darling boxes for the diva's teachers.
Found Here.

I filled some cupcake wrappers with some v-day sprinkles,
so the ladies could really get into it.

Then I dipped the fortune cookies.
(I bought mine. I'm no Martha Stewart.)
And the ladies sprinkles to their hearts desire.

Then we filled the fortune cookies boxes with v-day tissue paper,
and those beautiful fortune cookies.

And downloaded the tag....

And that's it.
So cute, and the ladies are both so excited to give them to their teachers.

We also made the cutest Valentines ever.
My friend Courtney did this with her kids last year
and we copied her.
We'd copy everything Courtney does if we could.
She's talented like that.
They turned out pretty great, I think.

The pictures were taken by
another seriously, annoyingly, talented friend
Eileen. (I'd copy everything she does, if I could, as well.)
She took a few pics of the ladies and forced me to sit in a few
while she was at it.But they turned out pretty darn cute. I do love these ladies of mine.
And Eileen, I love these pictures.
And well, I'll just say it, I love you. Also, yesterday we noticed that we have a bunch of
lovely lanterns in our back yard, patterned in the shape of
a heart.
We have no idea where or whom they came from,
but it was a fun surprise and made our day.
We have some pretty awesome friends!
Thanks, whoever you are. ;)

Here's wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day!
Go eat some chocolate and celebrate!

I love Valentines too! I saw those fortune cookies awhile back and I wanted to make them but I don't know if it will happen this year. I wish I could kick this illness in the bud so I can get back to life!
