{Our Valentines}

This year we got a little creative with our Valentines,
and had a lot of fun crafting them.
I'm not usually the craftiest of people,
so when I do actually make something,
I'm kinda proud of myself.
Anyhow, here are our Valentines this year.

We wrapped these mini cereal boxes
up with a cute bow and a red spoon
with a little tag that said,
"We Cerealsly like you."
We gave these to cousins a some of
their friends not in their class at school.
They turned out pretty cute.
(Idea found on pinterest).
For their teachers we made these darling
pop top cans filled with this delicious popcorn.
I wanted to make these for about a million
people but just didn't start saving cans in time.
I thought they turned out darling.

Since I didn't have enough cans I just
filled some bags with the rest of the popcorn.
Still pretty cute, I think.

But these Valentines the girls gave their classmates
turned out so adorable....but sadly, I can take
absolutely no credit for them.
One of my friends had all of these darling
plastic cases and came up with the Valentines
idea, as well as took the pictures...and gave me
the paper.
My friends are pretty much fabulous.

Aren't they darling?

Valentines morning the ladies awoke
to find their Valentine surprises
(Jewelry boxes and a few little things),
and a fun little table setting for breakfast.
Sadly, I had to nix the heart shaped pancakes because
Sienna was too we opted for heart shaped
toast. It was not very original, but they at least ate it...And then I put the camera away and snuggled
with my sick baby for the rest of the day.
I can't complain,
she's pretty adorable.

I hope you all had a fabulous V-day!
