Valentine Goodies!!!!

Are you ready? Today is February 1st, and marks the countdown, only 13 more days left to show those you love just how much you love them. Not that we should only show them on this day, but it's a good day to make a big deal of it, and make it special don'tcha think? Here's one of my fave Valentine's Day decorations - it sits above my fireplace!

You might recognize this basket from Christmas with the pinecones (it had christmas balls in it), I like to change it up a little for Valentine's so I just added a few heart shaped candle holders:)

Here's a cute little girl, in one of her cute little Valentine's Day outfits - Curtis is taking her to a Daddy/Daughter Dance in a few days, more to come on that - she's THRILLED!

Another one of my fave Valentines Day decorations, my X's and O's serving dishes - I think I won this playing Bunko (love that game) - they are from Pottery Barn I think!

Valentine Box #1 - more to come on this later:)

Some sweet Valentine's for some sweeties!

Some cute Valentines for some cuties!

Some yummy Valentines for...some people I love!

We've also been working hard on these - they are actually crayons melted down into the shape of hearts - they make me giddy!!! I think they are turning out sooooo cute!

Seriously, I could make these for days and give them to everyone I know!!! Aren't they adorable?! They just brighten my world - heh heh!!!

*Date night with Hubby - SOOOO many good romantic movies out right now!

I remember someone else talking about doing the crayons, what are the instructions?

Wow, Jara. You are sooo creative.

Our plans:
-daddy daughter dance on the 12th
-family Valentine dinner at home on Sunday. We'll pick a menu together including a special sweet treat, and I'll make menus on card stock.
-I bought a digital picture frame, and we're secretly filling it with our favorite pictures for Bill. We're also going to make a Happy Valentines Day poster and take a picture of ourselves holding it to put in with the other pictures.

P.S. The last two items on this list were suggested by ladies at my MOPS table. Yay!

You go Valentines crazy! I love it! :) Those crayons are on my list of things to do too. I think the Daddy Daughter dance is the cutest thing ever!
