Hey, I’m actually into February, this was a snow day a couple weeks ago:)

We had a snow day, I don’t have any pictures of them playing in the snow but they did get out there.  Noah came over, I was glad we could make that work since we’ve been trying to get the boys together for weeks.

Since Valentines day was the following week, we worked on Valentines.  Now, I have this really dumb thing about not buying “store bought” valentines, i think it started as a frugal thing since I have so much scrapbooking material lying around, and I really don’t like “character” things anyway, not on clothes, shoes or even valentines;).  This wasn’t such a problem when it was just Marian, we have made some fun homemade ones.  Well now we’ve got 80 valentines to make!  So, I was just slightly stressed this year-no worries, Marian had a very specific idea–rocket ships for the boys and butterflies for the girls.  She helped Ezra come up with some and Tobin just wanted to make shapes on my Cricut  and glue them together.  The family room was a hurricane of paper but we got a lot done!

And, they got some reading time (this mama needed some quiet time!)



I’m like-minded when it comes to the Valentines! Fun to see your kid’s creations. I was a bit(but just a little bit) sad this year as it was the first once in 16 years that we didn’t have to give Valentines to classmates with Caleb in middle school now. I asked him if he wanted to make/send/give a Valentine to anyone and he firmly said “no.” I still had my fun making/sending some to family members and college kids.
