My Funny Valentines...

No romantic dinner for two for the Greens this year. Daniel had to work most of the day so we celebrated family style. We started the morning with opening a few "Valentine Treats" and followed it up with a good old game of Candy Land. After that we dined on a very fancy lunch at McDonald's with the other Amanda Green. She captured the fabulous photo above. This is Ruby's "pirate face", or the look she gives us anytime we ask her to smile for a photo. It's usually accompanied by a "shiver me timbers" and it cracks me up!

In her Valentines "dancing dress" with her new heart sunnies...

Since miss thang is a bit on the spoiled side (think only grand child), i thought it would be good if she got into the practice of taking goodies to other people instead of always being on the receiving end. With that in mind i picked up a few goodies at Target and made a little assembly line for Ru so she could stuff the goody bags. After she filled them i got to try out my new Cricut machine to make the tags and i must say it was love at first print. i can't wait for my next excuse to use it.


On Valentine's Day, Ruby delivered her treats to all ten of the neighbor kids and she loved every moment of it. Here she is with her friend Ryan who lives next door to us. Ryan is two years older than Ruby and i'm pretty sure she thinks she's the bees knees! ; )

I love any excuse to decorate and Valentine's is no exception. In addition to my new go to holiday craft of bunting, i also discovered Acrylic Paint Pens at Michael's that are meant for writing on glass. Perfect for the person who has a HUGE window hanging on their wall right? What, you don't have a ginormous re purposed window salvaged from your parents window renovation project hanging in your house?!? : ) I'm always looking for ways to decorate this beast around the holidays and these markers fit the bill perfectly, but you could also use it on mirrors. Much easier cleanup than lipstick i would think. i will probably be investing in a few more colors and putting them to use on birthdays and other special occasions. When you're sick of it, comes right off with a little rubbing alcohol, easy peasy! please excuse my not so cute writing...



Hope you and yours had a very happy heart day...how did you spend your Valentines?

You were the Valentine gift EVER, darlin'! Love this post--it is proof that you are in the job you were born to do: wife, mommy and homemaker. You are being transformed into a Proverbs 31 woman and it's a joy to behold. Love you Pumpkin! <3 Momma
