Crazy Love

It's almost FEBRUARY!!! YAY!!!  I have LOTS of fun Valentines stuff planned for y'all... crafts, sweet ideas for the kiddos, a couple of recipes, Valentine's outfits (duh!) giveaways, etc!  I'm going to be featuring lots of LOVELY things that I'm crazy about and decided to make a cute little graphic for all of the posts. So here we go!
I'm starting to think about Luke's Valentines (and Mason and Griffins!) and thought I'd show you Luke's from previous years.  

Last year I picked up a bunch of crayons on crazy sale at Toys R Us and made some "colorful" Valentines using a box of crayons and some skittles.

In 2012 I had to come up with something last minute and so I attached this "shark card" to a package of Little Debbie heart cupcakes. 

In 2010, Luke was in Mother's Day Out and he was sent to the office (several times) for "hugging too much".  I made these ironic/appropriate goody bags that year and included Teddy Grahams as well as gummy bears. 


 This year I have a feeling his Valentine will be Lego-themed... but Minecraft is also a possibility :)

Two years ago I hosted our Small Group for Valentines Day.  Click HERE to see some fun party details.

  1. Precious video!!! I love love your Valentine ideas for the kiddos! I have been looking for some cute ones on pinterest and just love the crayon one you did- our school doesn't let the kids bring "food/candy" valentines due to allergies, so we have to get creative! Happy almost Valentine Month!

  3. Oh goodness. These are the posts that make me want to ship my kids off to your house for the month so that they can properly enjoy the holiday. I was thinking about handing them a handful of Conversation Hearts and calling it a day...but now after reading this...that sounds lame.

  7. Let's just see how many "Andrea"s we can fit on one blog post, shall we? I'm new here, following over from Shay, Shaeffer, and Erika's blogs. I love your colorful Valentine's, so I may just have to steal that idea. Although, my not-as-princessy princess may want that Minecraft idea!
