Valentine's Day 2012!

This year, I let the boys make their own Valentine's... with a lot of help from me, of course.  We printed some things from the internet and assembled them with lots of glue!  Preston helped me a lot, and did a great job signing him name to each one (there were 40!):
Diligently writing his name over & over!
I let Callen do his little scribble on each one too, then I followed up by writing "Callen" under it, haha:
Callen adding his scribble.
They came out really cute.  A maze on one side and a reminder of the source of True Love on the other:
Final product.
We went to our homeschool group's Valentine's party and the boys had a blast playing with the other kids.  Snacks, games, passing out Valentine's... it was a lot of fun!

Michael worked that whole day, so the boys and I had a special Valentine's dinner: Pumpkin Pancakes, sausage, eggs and yogurt-covered frozen strawberries.  They didn't come out quite as I expected, but the boys enjoyed them anyway!
Does my mouth look heart-shaped?
It's a little tart, mama!
We also played "Towel Ball," which is really just wacking at the ball with a towel to try to get it past Mama.  Haha!
Get it, Callen!
