our v-day, a special moment + goals

How is February almost over? I don't know how it happens. We had a great Valentine's Day as a family last week! I made cinnamon rolls (from a can) in a heart shape for breakfast:


And then we had a little exchange. :) When I was a kid, we made Valentine's mailboxes for our school party, so we did our own homemade/homeschooling version this year. The kids had fun putting each other's cards into their boxes: 


I didn't make a box, but the kids found a basket to deliver ours to: :)


I had no idea they made presents for each other! Noah made rainbow crayons for the little kids using his sister's hair dryer:


And Ava made me a necklace!! I think she used a tag from something we bought, and a few stones and beads she had! I loved it!


Noah made the girls bracelets for their dolls:


We did school, filmed the video for last week, and then we went to lunch together as a family and dropped the kids off at my dad's. I love that Papa gave his girls Valentine candy: :) 


They were SO excited. :) I remember my dad doing the same for me when I was little! It was super special. :) We had the chance to grab some coffee alone, then we went back home to work, and back out for a quick dinner with just the baby. It was so nice to have a few hours of quiet and a chance to go out on a date!! :)

My mom came to visit and our weekend flew by in a happy blur. A new week begins so quickly around here! Does it for you too? Our days feel very full right now!
