I hope you all had a great day. Ken and I have never been big on Valentine's Day. But today was fun – we spent it with a friend's family. They have two kids that are older than Colin, but are SO good with him and he adores them. A good day. Anyone do anything special?
Here are the goodies Colin and I made for his classmates. The pictures aren't great. We made 25 for his classmates and they were simple to make. The black and white dotted packages are actually gift bags from Hobby Lobby – 10 for $1.99. In each bag are a pack of markers or paint ($.99) and 16 small coloring pages with a Valentine's theme. (I googled "Valentine coloring pages" and printed them on my computer – so easy and cheap! I kept the bag flat and folded it over and taped it on the back. So it looks like I wrapped them, but didn't. The hearts on it were cut from my Cricut (so fast and easy – Colin can do it) and I printed and punched the message on the small heart. He did the gluing with me and we were done!
And here are the teachers gifts. In it are some muffins, cookies and candies Colin and I made. The card is inside the bag.

And I have another show I must talk about – another mindless one. This one is Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo. The gal who runs it is a riot and the rich men who come on the show are characters. Anyone else watch it?
OK… off to bed. So tired today! Have Heart Day!
