Valentines Day Recap

I am a little late on this post. But what is new since Bryar Wayne arrives to our family, over 16 months ago. I wonder if I will ever get back into the swing of things? Hopefully so.

Valentines Day was extremely low key for us this year. Curtis and I did not exchange gifts and counted out weekend getaway as our gift to one another. Which I actually liked. I am not a flowers type of girl. Roses? They smell awful and I am not a fan of chocolate unless it is brownies. I know, it isn't normal...

I did make Charli and Curtis a "Book of Love Coupons." Charli's had daddy or mommy date nights, family game night, tickets to stay up late, ice cream dates, pizza nights. Curtis' obviously will not be shared. {Haha you're welcome Mom and Amanda}

Charli wanted a Valentines box this year that was a horse! Talk about work. 3 nails, 3 box, lots of tape, hot glue and some time later I fixes her up one. She worked on the box as well but pretty much this was my gift to her. Not to toot my own horn or anything but this box was a huge hit with her whole school.

I was able to help with the craft for Charli's school party. Which I worried over forever. It seems that most crafts that seem easy are really not. I learned the hard way at Halloween. But this year I found "A message in a bottle." At first I thought that mason jars would be the great thing to use but not for kids on the bus. So instead I purchased 4 packs of "limeade juice" bottles at Dollar General for $1 each. I cleaned the bottles and let them dry for days.

Next, I printed out "I love you because..." graphics. I also purchased heart stokers for decorations on the outside and used left over yarn. Each kid wrote a note to their parents or whomever they wanted., then rolled the paper up and we tied it with the yarn. Before sliding the paper into the bottle we filled it with Hershey kisses and conversations hearts. It was actually very cute!

Charli loves me because I am "budoiful" and Curtis because he is "honsome." :) She waited to give her gift until right before she left for the Daddy Daughter Dance, which I will sharing tomorrow!

Oh, and Charli received a box of chocolates from a boy who has a "crush" on her in her class. Nooooo!!!!!!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
