I love celebrations with little kids around. Every thing is such a big! deal! We hosted a little Valentine making party for some of Ruby’s friends the weekend before the big day. There was paint and glitter all over our table, surrounded by very focused little girls.
Ruby made lovebugs.
We had a little heart tic-tac-toe game out for girls to play when they needed a break.
And some strawberry ice cream sandwiches to munch on.
I made Gigi stuffed kitty.
John got a sleeve to the sweater I’m knitting him and special pencils. He gave me two boxes of cookies from a favorite far-away bakery – so thoughtful and delicious! I knit Ruby a scarf to keep her warm and “snuggled with my love” as she said (heart melts).
But the best part, by far, were the sweet little notes we all got from each other.
