Valentine's Day Recap

>> Thursday, February 25, 2010

Ok, so I'm a little last posting this...but better late than never, right?

So, to kick off the Valentine's celebrations, Nani and I made a Love Tree. We took some foam hearts that I had laying around and wrote on there people and things we love. My favorites that Nani wrote were God and Marshmallows!



We then took a juice bottle and cut the bottom off. We wrapped red wrapping paper around it and I let Nani go to town with stickers to decorate it.



After taping the hearts to straws, we then inserted them into some floral foam, tucked in some tissue paper - and viola! A daily reminder of those that we love!




*******************************

The next day was Nani's Valentine's party at preschool. You gotta love it. There's nothing that says Valentine's Day more than 25 preschoolers hopped up on cupcakes and sugar candy hearts! Anyway - We opted not to go with the store-bought Valentines and instead made cute little teddy bear Valentine's.

We bought a couple boxes of Teddy Grahams, some Valentine's treat bags, and bear stickers. I printed out "I'm Bear-y Glad We're Friends" on card stock and then Nani signed them and put a bear sticker on each on. I really liked how they turned out.


We dressed up that morning in hearts and I even did Nani's hair in the shape of a heart.  She was the talk of her preschool class!



It was so cute to watch Nani meticulously put each Valentine into her friend's "mailbox".



And what Valentine's Day party isn't complete with crafts, snacks, and stories?






Even Nudgie got into the spirit!

Oveall, it was a pretty nice Valentine's Day for the girls!  I love seeing Nani have so much fun with her friends and I love to see Nudgie try to do what Nani does.

I really am blessed!
