Porter says & kid valentines

"You guys can't go on a date.  Only girlfriends and boyfriends can go on dates, not Moms and Dads and pregnant ladies."
-Porter (5) on parental Valentine's romance
 

Ever since I saw these valentines all over the blogs last year, I knew I wanted to make them this year.  I thought it would be difficult to get the placement of their hands just right, but it was super easy.  I love the way they turned out.  The only thing I would have done differently would be to use a flatter sucker. 
This was the most painful part.  We usually got through two a night before the whining set in. 
Seriously, isn't Kindergarten writing the cutest?
All ready to pass out to his friends at school.
We are in charge of drinks for the class party so I just took mini water bottles, ripped the label off, glued a ribbon on, and stuck on these fun foam stickers that I found at the Dollar Tree.
Her preschool party is tomorrow and we did the same valentines for her friends. 

Happy Valentines Day!

Holy cow, these are awesome!! Love those sucker Valentines and the little embellished waters are too cute!!

You look great at 33 weeks!!! Only 23 lbs, you're my inspiration. I'm trying to be good, it's just there are Valentine cookies around the house and soon there will be Cadbury eggs to ignore. It's hard to have strong willpower when you're so uncomfortable, right?

Thanks for your comments on the blog, every bit of encouragement that I'm not crazy helps! :)

Have a great week!!
