Valentine's {Day}...??

Valentine's day around here isn't just one day at our house... it always seems to last for days. It started when Steve bought Rainee the Valentine Dalmatian from Build-a-Bear.... it's adorable. Rainee named him Valentine, and now carries him pretty much everywhere. It wasn't even Valentine week... but that was the start of our "Valentine's Day"!

On the week of Valentine's Day... ours went something like this...
Monday - We had Anessa, Molly and Michael over for... Rainee's Valentine Cupcake party... they made quite yummy creations... played... had pizza... made more creations.... and played some more!
Tuesday & Wednesday - Rainee & I worked on her Valentine Doggie's and the pencil monster toppers she gave to her class at the party.
Thursday - Steve took me out for an early Valentine's Day lunch, because he had to work Valentine's Day. This year was a bit different... Rainee wasn't there... she was in school. It was nice having lunch just the two of us, but we both missed her.
Friday - Rainee's class Valentine's Day Party!!! It was a very full and fun filled party. Her teacher makes centers with 3-4 kids in each and does different fun things in each... and each group gets to go around the room and participate in each center... it's a great way to keep them occupied and enjoy the party day. But I have to say the fun-est part of the party was watching them make their 'Love Bugs' out of candies and a chocolate cupcake!!! Very cute!
Oh... we're not done yet...
Saturday - Rainee had a Birthday Party then a Valentine Party to go to. Plus, we made Valentine's Day cards for Daddy, Mommy and Rainee...
Sunday - Valentine's Day.... I got up early and made breakfast in bed for Rainee & Steve. Steve got heart pancakes... and for Rainee I had to make heart doggie pancakes. Steve went to work... but for us 2 gals at home... we made heart shaped turkey sandwiches for lunch... for dinner used the cookie cutter again to make the slices on our frozen pizza. If our day wasn't full enough of watching movies, going to the park, making more cards and eating fun heart shaped food... we also made chocolate chip cookies for daddy to have when he got home from work.

For such a simple little holi{day}... ours was full... doing fun things all week... It may have been loaded with a lot... but it was overflowing with love. How was yours??
