Five for Friday - February 14

Woo hoo, it is Friday or I mean Saturday - since I was too tired to finish this post last night.  I am linking up with Kacey for the linky party this week.

I survived my first Valentine's Day in TK.  It was a lot of fun.  There are some things I wish I added to the day and need to make a note for next year.  The kids loved it.

I made a Valentine sensory box using the rice that I dyed from Christmas.  I hit Target for all the goodies.  My little people enjoy playing with these boxes, it is encouraging me to make more.

The spoons, erasers, pom poms and metal container were from the Dollar Spot at Target.  The erasers and the heart links were with the Valentine goodies in the back of the store.  I will probably keep this out for another week, so I can get another one made.

I made some felt hearts for the flannel board so the kids could do some patterning and addition/subtraction activities.  This was a big hit with them.  They are about 3 inches tall.

I have such a difficult time taking down the Christmas decorations each year.  It just makes me sad.  Hubby didn't want me to take down the tree in the family room.  He says that it is the perfect amount of light for watching TV at night.

So, I didn't.  I turned it into a Valentine's tree.  I left all the plain red ornaments on the tree.  

Then, I added black and white photos of my grandbabes to the tree.  I, really, like how it turned out and everybody in my family is happy.


My little guy fell asleep in the high chair - twice this week, after dinner.  The weather has been great here, so we have been outside playing before dinner.  He just couldn't stay awake.  I love being a Grandma.

DANG!!! This makes me want to remarry my husband!!! A rhinestone jewel brooch bridal bouquet made by Noaki on Etsy.

My niece is getting married and wants this for her bouquet, so hubby and I are are going to the antique stores today, to see what we can find.  I am excited to spend the day with him, doing what we love.  We haven't been antiquing in over 3 years, since he has been gone.  Wish me luck in finding a few pins for her.

Have a great weekend. I love having a 3 day weekend.

Pin It!
