Hearts all a-flutter


On Valentine's Morning my kids wake up to fluttering hearts in their door-ways. It's fun for them to look at each heart and see what silly, sweet thing has been written about them on this LOVE-ly day.


Do you have a Valentine's Day tradition?

That is such a cute idea! The only Valentines Day tradition I do (until I saw your post) is I make heart shaped banana pancakes covered with strawberries and whipped cream oh! and I actually make chocolate covered strawberries for dessert after dinner too!

You are such a fun mom! And did I hear you say you quit PTO? REALLY? It's so funny how the PTO moms try to act nice to me when I know they are thinking about how annoying I am. Ha, ha, ha. Valentines day kind of came and went here besides the two parties at school. I do have some ice cream in the freezer William wants me to eat. Better go.

Oh, I forgot....William did thank me for not repeating the tradition I had started our first year of marriage. I floated a heart-shaped pink sponge with the words I LOVE YOU on it in the toilet. He thought it was super gross, even though I assured him the potty had been sufficiently bleached.
