Valentines Going Ons

I haven't typically done much of anything for Valentines Day in our family.
Not anything that has stuck anyway.

we're trying again this year though.
I'm not a quitter.

idea #1:
Last year I tried to do a table cloth that we all wrote on with Sharpies and I thought I'd pull it out each year, adding 'love' notes to each other.
Then I washed it.
Then I threw it away.
The Sharpie bled and got all weird.
It was sad.
I may try to repeat this but with fabric markers or somethings so we can wash it.
I'll keep ya posted.

idea #2:
this one is going over VERY well.
better than I could have even imagined.
I saw it here, two years ago. She got it from here.

basic breakdown:
homemade felt fortune cookies.
each girl has 14. color coded, of course.

Inside each one are little things I love specifically about that daughter.
They get to open one each morning with breakfast from Feb 1-Feb 14.

Hearing their little voices read what I love about them, 
hearing them tell their sisters what it says, 
watching their little faces get all glowy and stick like that has been 

Love this one!

idea #3:
Their Valentines this year.
LOVE them.
Found it on Pinterest....duh.

I can't stop looking at them.
they turned out better than I'd even hoped!
the girls are elated over them...they can NOT wait to give them out!

be mine!

I tried to talk my kids into doing this idea when I saw it on Pinterest too. But they said no.
They turned out great. At first I actually thought it was a picture of them holding a giant lollipop.
