Happy Valentine's Day!

These were our Valentine Cards this year!  We totally stole the idea from 24-7-365 blog.

All I did was take a pic of the girls holding their hands out.  Then I used Picnik to fancy up the photos and printed them on regular copy paper.  I then stick glued them to a rectangle of construction paper and used an exacto-knife to cut slits for the suckers.  Finally, I had Kyndall write her name on them:
What a cutie huh!!  She worked hard.  We did these all day Saturday.  Then all of a sudden out of the blue Kyndall had flushed cheeks and a fever...ugh.  She felt horrible all day Sunday and this morning she is doing better but still at 100.5 without tylenol.  If her fever doesn't go away by this afternoon we'll head to the Dr.  Avery woke up this morning with a fever, chills and is just plain pitiful:(  I was bummed for Kyndall, look what she helped me make her teachers too:
Here she wrote them a message on the back an attached her Valentine cards to the front:)

Oh well, she can give them to her teachers when she gets back to school.  Since they were a little under the weather and their Bits, Gram and Grammie gave them LOTS of candy and fun toys for Valentine's day....we gave the girls:
Monogrammed heart pillow, fancy locket necklace, card and some York Peppermint Patties....they LOVE Yorks:)

Here is the front and back of the pillows:

Kyndall and Avery LOVE pillows and stuffed animals....they were really excited to get these....They are sweet girls.  They were pretty mellow, both being sick and all.  So I better go take care of them and give them some cuddles!  We hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day!

Oh, sweet husband gave me a dozen beautiful roses when I woke up and was supposed to take me to a fancy dinner....but since the girls are sick...we'll reschedule.  Maybe we won't have to wait so long with crowds then right???

I saw these and thought about making them for Aubrey, super cute! Maybe I can coax all of the kids to cooperate and do them next year. :)
