Happy Valentine’s Day

The Hoobs and I don’t really do the chocolate and flower thing for L-O-V-E day.
I did however receive this letter in my inbox today. He’s my #1 Valentine.

Happy Valentine's Day

Last Minute Valentines

9 Feb

 To make, cut a heart from a strip of candy dots, and glue it to a piece of construction paper. With scalloping scissors, cut construction paper to create a border around the heart. Piece of cake.. errr CANDY!

Candy Dot Hearts
from Martha Stewart

 Cut hearts from 1-inch squares of pink and red felt. Fold each in half horizontally, and cut a vertical slit {or buttonhole} about the same size as the button. Button up shirt, and slip hearts over buttons.

CYO Countdown to Kisses

18 Jan

Every year my gram gets me one of those chocolate advent calendars from the $1 store to countdown to Christmas. Is it just me or are those chocolates the best ever? They may just be the cheapest chocolates ever made, but it doesn’t matter. They’re delicious! I know you all know which calendars I’m referring to. Did you have one of these as a kid?

I think a big reason why I love the taste of these chocolates is because I only get them once a year… counting down to my absolute favorite time of year. Anticipation to special occasions makes it all more exciting. Especially for the kiddos! Since Valentine’s Day is in a couple of weeks, why not create a countdown to this special day? After all, why should Christmas be the only holiday that gets a calendar?

I absolutely love this Countdown to Kisses Calendar!
