Valentine's Day 2009...Spreading the Love

I will freely admit I enjoy Valentine's Day! Since the birth of Parker we have not only celebrated his birthday, but also our love for one another as a family.

This year, I found the perfect card for our little Ryder (aka our little frog)!
I scored this card at the Dollar Spot at Target (love, love, love that section).

The boys and I worked together to make decorations to hang around the house...

Garrett and I constructed the paper chain one morning
while Parker was at school and Ryder was napping.

A variety of hearts greet our "guests" at the back door.

Two cute hearts made with love...Parker's heart is on the right and
Garrett's on the left.

I found these super cute robot cookies at Target for the older two boys.
FYI...they tasted AWFUL!!!

The boys were super excited to wake up to
a dining room table full of Valentine's goodies.
The confetti was not one of my most well thought
out ideas considering Ryder crawls all around
. Ooops!

Parker and Garrett each received a bag filled with
stickers, candy, little note pads (something they treasure lately),
a hot wheels car, new coloring book, and a few other small gifts.

I love Garrett's bedhead!

Typically, I am not a huge fan of stuffed animals. However,
it was Ryder's first Valentine's Day and I could not resist the urge to find
him something soft and fuzzy;)

No need to take the wrapper off!

Finally, as a family we sat down to a breakfast of heart shaped pancakes...

They went from this... this!
Super simple? Yes, but the boys LOVED 'em!

We hope all of you had an enjoyable day as well!!!

How fun! I always forget Tabitha is at the "I can crawl & eat things stage", too. LOL
