Happy Valentine's Day!


I woke up giddy with excitement today... here is why! I do love a good party...especially for the kids! I love that I can turn anything, any day, anytime into a party by bringing in a few balloons and having some kind of dessert! I love that kids (at this age) don't care who's invited, or that the party favors came from the dollar store. I love that I can make home made cakes, cookies, and cupcakes and they love it. So today, for my 4 favorite little people, I am having a SURPRISE Valentine's day party!! Yahh!! I'm shipping my 2 off to Grandma's and Grandpa's for a few hours while I magically turn our dining room into a Valentine's wonderland. At noon, they will come home to join their two BFF's for a party! Stay tuned...pictures to come!!




Here are a few pictures from our party! I wish I had my camera when Gracie came home...priceless. She couldn't speak, couldn't think...almost looked like she was going to cry! Then she shouted out, "Is this for me...my Valentine's day"?! And that's why I do it!
