Valentine’s Day totally sneaked up on me this year! I mean, I knew it was coming and all, but not so quickly. I’m not ready! This is not a holiday that I make a huge deal out of, but I have several things I’ve been working on for the loves in my life, and they’re not done yet! I still have this evening, right?
This is my lone Valentine’s Day decoration this year:
A heart garland made out of red and white felt. It was inspired by something I saw posted on Pinterest, which is my new internet obsession. Like I have time for any more internet obsessions. Anyway, the original is here. I thought hers was cute, but since I didn’t have the bead-looking things to put between them, I thought I’d add dimension by making the individual hearts multi-layered. I started with 3, but my sewing machine totally balked at that. Two it is, then.
We had a super-cold weekend, so we spent lots of time sitting around playing games and drinking hot chocolate. Jeremy found us a new Mille Bornes game, since our old one had too many cards missing to really play it.
It is…..Cars themed! The little boys were thrilled.
It might have something to do with the iPhone app I downloaded recently that makes the subjects of your photos have cool facial hair or bald heads. I thought they would find that amusing. You never can tell with these guys, though. Apparently Josh, Jordan, and Joseph don’t trust me with a camera at the moment.
But Jon let me take his picture:
And so did Josiah:
Well, I’ve got Valentines to prepare and very little time left. Got to get to work!!
