Valentine's Day fun

Since the older boys were homeschooled this year, they didn't get the traditional Valentine's day stuff. So I decided to treat them to a Valentine's day scavenger hunt. Each clue starts with this: Roses are red, Violets are blue, I have something special, just for YOU!
Here they are reading clue #1:

This clue lead them to these FOAM swords:

Then off to clue #2 which brought them outside to the mail box for these notebooks and workbooks:

And clue #3 took them to the backyard for these:

Clue #4 lead them to the table for candy. Yes, I gave my kids candy for breakfast on Valentine's day. And they enjoyed every minute of it (I did too actually!) They also found a little letter from us.

Derrik and I went out to celebrate Friday night with some friends and had a great time! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Stuff 'n' Fluff

January is gone, February is in full swing. Here's what we've been up to:
Ethan went to winter camp the end of January. He was in the mountains in 3 feet of snow! He had a blast!
Here Cameron and Ashton are waiting to say goodbye to Ethan for the weekend.

I chose to wear a red scarf last week when I took Ashton to Mommy and Me Preschool since it was our Valentine's party. As soon as he saw me he asked me if I was going to the snow. Then, a little later, he said he wanted a scarf too. So, here we are sporting our scarves at preschool.
