Playing Catch-Up (February 12-28)

Weston had to be out of town on Valentine's Day, but when I woke up I was surprised with a Valentine's Day Scavenger Hunt.  Weston had left one clue on my nightstand with instructions to  not open until Valentine's Day.  He lead me on a six clue hunt which ended with a large candy gram poster.   

I was able to finish the hunt before the kids woke up.  We just had a simple breakfast, but I did pick up a small heart box of chocolates for the boys.  I made them strawberry milk, which is always a special treat.  And I was able to use my new mason jar lids.  The boys may have not noticed, but I such think they are cute.  

Here is a picture of my cute valentine. I hope Weston doesn't get jealous 
Hunter went to store with his valentines and came back home with this large heart pouch that they made in class to hold all the valentines. 

Here are some pictures of some of our valentine decorations. 
Last year I saw this quote baord on Landee See Landee Do and thought it was super cute, so I made my own. 
And do you see that cute little red teapot.  Weston got that for me, it was part of my scavenger hunt.
I thought it was the perfect finsihing touch for my mantel 

The little lightbulb on the end is from the valentine exchange party that I went to early in the week.  The poem attached read:

If the stars were mine
I'll tell you what I'd do
I'd put the stars right in a jar and give them all to you. 

Then the glass star in the middle is also from the exchange.  I didn't hang it this year, I couldn't decided whether to hang in the middle of the mirror, or hang it in the window.  But I LOVE it.  I can't believe how talented people are.  Becky Knusden made one of these for each of the ladies. 

Isn't it so cute?  And I love how the middle of the star is in the shape of a heart. 
If you are interested she and her husband have an etsy shop: PIGGY&DIRT where they sell these and much more.  I have spent many hours just looking at their etsy shop. 
The boys also wanted to help me decorate, so they cut out hearts and put them on one of the kitchen walls.   
Here's another decoration I got from the exchange.  Heidi made this cute sign.  I love how she made the "O" 

Some of the other exchange projects were yummy treats, which I think I ate all of, since Weston was gone. 
So the jumpropes were a much needed and time apportiate valentine. 

When Weston got home and saw the jumpropes, he went right outside and started jumping. 
When he came inside he told me that this was the first jumprope he ever owned. 
While he was in Florida, he brought a LEGO set from the boys, which they quick asked him to help them assemble. 

Quincy continues to be the cutest little boy.  Here he is exploring books.  

We had a boys movie night.  Hunter and Walter invited their friends the Schiffman's.  They decorated boxes to look like cars.  And we had a mini drive-in theater. 

Another cute memory was during school time.  Walter would put a marker in his mouth and then shot it out.  Quincy just thought it was the funniest thing.  He laughed and laughed, which of course made Walter do it more and more.

It was so cute that I took a video

Hi, Sue! I recently got a new computer, and don't have RSS anymore, so it's taken me a while to manually check if you had new posts. I've missed a lot!

You did such awesome things in February! I love your mantel, as always, especially the heart you made, the polka dot kettle and the red framed wedding picture. So cool. I hope you like the jumpropes :)
