Valentine’s Fun

Now that we are all on the mend, we have been trying to squeeze in all the Valentine’s Day festiveness before the big day. To be honest, we are all about to go a little crazy during this flu season. We haven’t been able to play much outside & we have been avoiding people to keep away from germs. And it seems that we are taking turns with our friends – when we are sick, they are well and when they are sick we are better. Hopefully, this season of illness will pass soon, because being stuck at home all the time is starting to get to us! So to help entertain a two year old, we have been making Valentine’s to send to our family & friends. And I hope sometime we can make some pink & heart shaped goodies. Because how can you properly celebrate Valentine’s Day without sweets, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

We started off with a simple craft, cut out hearts to color and put stickers on because Ada loves stickers. And an adorable printable for Ada to color. I hope that we can try to do this craft later. I can definitely use some Ada hands/hearts in my life.

Can you tell that she is super excited about doing a craft?

And of course, hop-hop can never be left out on all the fun. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I picked up a few Valentine’s Day goodies for Ada because just look how cute she is, all decked out in Valentine cheer! ๐Ÿ˜‰ How can I resist that sweet face?

I hope everyone is having a great week and that you are all staying healthy! Happy Hump Day!

Making Valentines

Sorry that I have been a bit MIA lately. We have been super busy visiting grandparents and traveling for business. This mama is exhausted from hotel living with a toddler! We are all so happy to be back home and we are gettingย back to normal around here. Even though traveling was tiring, it was nice to take a little break from social media and just enjoy being with my family.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I put together a little craft for Ada this week. Ada loves to color and she is fascinated with stickers. Even though she does panic when she can’t get the sticker off her finger. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For her Valentines, I cut out some hearts and bought some stickers that I knew she would like; she loved the owl stickers!

I plan on sending these Valentines to friends and family. They might get them before Valentine’s Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

This face… wow. I can’t imagine what kind of looks we are going to get when she is a teenager!!!

I hope you are all having a great week! Happy Hump Day!
