Valentine's Day 2014

I love Valentine's day!  It is fun to decorate and distributing a few little treats to those I love just makes it so special.
It began with Steph's (oh, this party is intimidating to me) Valentine's Exchange.  I went over on Thursday before and helped her make all the cookies.  For the party on the Sat before V-day, I brought felt heart garlands and small loaves of 9 grain bread. Thanks for the loaf pans, Deb!  I brought the same garlands to my friends, VT-ees, and the girls teachers.

We gave the girls their baskets of treats the night before.  They loved the specialized Disney necklaces as well as the other little treats.
On Valentine's Day they brought their valentines to school, wore the heart hairdo, and did free dress.
Valentine's night was crazy with lessons so we delayed the annual fondue until the weekend.  Oh my that cheese fondue is amazing with roasted asparagus.
We also loved the Valentines we received in the mail from Grandma.  To thank her, we went to her house and did "Love Service" and cleaned her baseboards and the where the floor meets them.


  1. What a day full of love! Sounds wonderful!

  2. What a fun idea- Valentine's baskets! I like that. It's special and sweet. Also, I'm loving Eliza's spunky style of clothes! That girl is hilarious!

  3. The disney necklaces were such a huge hit. And the fondue was delicious as usual! What a great week!

  4. Super fun Valentines ideas....great times!!
