Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Love is in the Air

Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away, and I've started talking to the girls about it.

We broke out our Valentine's books yesterday, and I've got a handful of crafts in mind.

The girls are definitely starting to feel the buzz.

In response to the heart-patterned shirt I got out for A yesterday, she said, "Ooh, we could wear these hearts for Valentine's Day!"

And one of the first things B told her daddy when he got home was, "Daddy! Valentine's Day is a very special day when we celebrate love!"

I'm even thinking of getting crafty and making a card for the hubs this year. My mind keeps going to this picture that we had taken before the holidays...I love it!

I love all the hearts and glitter and CHOCOLATE surrounding Valentine's Day...and it's so much more fun to share it with our baby girls!

I agree, I think I enjoy valentine's day now more than I did before I had kids. It's so much fun to celebrate with them. :)

Love that picture! We've been getting into the Valentine's Day spirit around here too. Honestly, Brad and I really never do much for each other, but it's so fun to involve the girls---I know they don't really "get it" yet, but they do love crafting with hearts :)

I love that picture! It's amazing!
And I LOVE Valentines day too! Not all the hype around it and people having to spend a fortune on flowers, but that it symbolizes love, something so dear to every one of us =). How fun that your girls are to an age now where they can understand what Valentines Day is and means - that has got to make it so much more fun!!

What a great picture!!

My kids have already picked out valentines to take to school. I'm actually amazed that Sarah hasn't bugged me 500 times to fill them out yet but I told her she had to wait till we got 'directions' for their teacher(s) for how they wanted them to do them. ;-)
