How was your weekend? I hope it was really great. Ours was pretty lovely. Saturday’s sale was amazing. I was once again humbled and blown away. God is too good. Thank you guys so much. There is one canvas still available and I’ll probably just leave it up for a while. You can check it out here.
The weather here was too pretty for most of the weekend. The kids played outside a ton. Our canoe is now the cool hang out spot. I heard Huddy telling Harper the other day, “I told Sol a secret under the canoe.” It’s tilted up, so they can crawl underneath it too. Now that I read that back…it doesn’t sound too safe. #parentsoftheyear…again
We basically chilled in our pjs almost the whole weekend. We needed some slow time.
Josh is getting acquainted with his iPhone. I loved looking over and seeing them all trying to get in a picture together. Still trying to talk him into Instagram…I’ll keep pressuring him until he caves.
We also got our Valentine on. This week is super busy, but I know will be super fun. We have Valentines parties and school fundraisers and at-home-dates planned…oh and lots of baking. We’re sharing the baked good love this week. So I knew we needed to knock out all the valentines prep this weekend.
Harper picked out cute little 6 packs of Valentine pins in the $1 bin at Michaels. We cut out some foam hearts, pinned the pin in the middle and she decorated them as she pleased. Her teacher even sent home a sheet of hearts with all her classmates names, so she just cut those little hearts out and taped them on. Done.
The boys were a different story. They decided they wanted to make arrows…out of sticks…for their friends. Huddy actually talked about sword valentines, but then went with Sol on the arrow idea. Hmmmm, this is the type of dilemma you likely avoid with girls. I debated…do I just make them pick something different or do I go with the stick arrow Valentines? I decided to indulge them…I appreciated their creativity.
Then it started raining before we went to gather sticks. Josh swooped in remembering we had some wooden skewers. I cut out felt hearts…Huddy insisted the arrows still had hearts…and hot glued them as the arrowhead. Then we needed to figure out the feather part. Josh Kelley again swooped in, grabbed a roll of washi tape and worked his magic. So so easy and waaaaaay cute. The boys were thrilled. They helped with attaching the kit-kats and picked which arrow went to which friend and signed their names.
Amon wasn’t much help. He just hung out…looking all cute and jazz.
And now I can cross valentines off my list. I’m going to bake like crazy this week…really yummy stuff…and today I’m packaging up canvases and key fobs to ship out. If you have already paid for your items, your goodies will go out tomorrow. Hope everyone has a fantastic start to their week.
