Valentines Day

We had a very uneventful weekend, celebrating Valentine's day...just as I like it. We watched movies, sewed, gamed, and spent time together as a family, spreading the love. This year we made valentines day boxes for the kids, and picked up some treasures from the dollar store to fill the boxes. The kids got them Sunday morning and were thrilled to find all the surprises inside.
I think the candy was their favorite part!

Ben outdid himself this year. First of all, he surprised me at work with a beautiful boquay of flowers. Then, TIM MCGRAW tickets... Seventh row... I'm in heaven. I am sooooo excited for July to come around!

With Hayden in preschool this year, we (meaning me, as I am a germ freak) got to make the famous sugar cookies (aka car wreck cookies). They tasted delicious, and I think the decorating turned out ok.... Only ok, cause my sister's turned out soooo much cuter.


While at the dollar store, I found a pink sweatshirt that was just Ady's size... but it had black spots of ink all over the bottom. I had the perfect remedy!

So I would love to know how you add the embelishments onto the shirts. The heart is adorable and I have seen you do it several times.
