OK, so I had a party again this year.
I've had a party every year for 7years.
I might not have the year Simeon was born, I can't remember.
I was so dang busy, I forgot to get pictures of my kiddos,
you know all together in one picture, an annual picture I love to take.
Oh, well, we can all wear red another day this week, right?
I did manage to make these this year for my kiddos
I pinned Patty last year, wanting to make them this year!
See HERE--her's are much cuter.
I also tried to make these beautiful Valentines like Jessica--HERE
but my printer broke after printing the colored ones, it ran out of color ink
and now we can't even get it to print black and white.
My kids only made like a couple each and got tired of doing them
and made their own or did the cheap pre-made Spiderman ones!
I made these, like every year....kind of fun.
My husband brought me some beautiful roses.
I admit, I do not like roses
I think they are overrated, and I just like fresh mixed flowers better,
I really was tickled to get these.
Sometimes I surprise myself and I guess he knew I'd love them
I baked 6
The chocolate chip ones were hard as a rock,
but the sugar ones were wonderful.
*note to self: next year only make the sugar cookie ones*
Prizes for 23 kiddos
I always give the heart candy boxes and heart cups as prizes!
Plus we had prizes for all the Minute to Win it games!
Here the kids are stacking Conversation hearts in towers,
to see who can get the highest
in 60 seconds!
These boys were hilarious.
This game you had to put a popsicle stick in your mouth
and stack 6 conversation hearts on it, in 60 seconds....
This one they had to bite off the end of Valentine candy corn
and stick it around a plate in a circle
in 60 seconds...it actually took longer like a minute and a half.
Little Red does not like huge crowds he wanted to decorate his Valentine bag.
This game we had 6 Penne noodles around a bench and they had to hold a piece of uncooked
spaghetti in their mouths and without using hands, go around the bench
picking up the Penne noodles.
This game was my favorite to watch!
The kids did so awesome!
Some of the kids, like my own here, made the funniest faces while trying to do it!
Everyone was cheering and laughing!
I reminded everyone to wear red or pink.
Jedi did not get the memo.
I knew the night before he was going to wear this green shirt.
I just knew it.
But I forgot til we were already at Mass and I looked over and
sure enough, I saw the green sleeve peeking out his coat.
This is the last picture I got,
because our upstairs bathroom toilet overflowed
and started dripping in the downstairs dining room!
Yes, pee water all over the dining room....
then, it was a mad rush to fill the decorated bags
and there was no time to eat,
so I sent everyone home with giant cookies and treats.
I hope they all had a great time!
Then, the next day was sweet Ava's 4th birthday!
She's my sweet goddaughter.
My favorite thing growing up was rainbows.
Christine has lots of animals,
and my girls love animals.
Look at these adorable 4 year olds!!
(and a fat cat)
This little girl of mine, is going to own a pet store when she grows up,
because her mama does not want any pets.
You know what I say about that?
"Good for you!!"
"Oh, look how cute you look with the dog!"
"Can we get a dog?"
Hope your love day was extra special!
