I'm thinking about buying a set of these clover plates to use for St. Patrick's Day dinner each year. Or maybe just to use in general for the month of March.

Valentine, you are good for us.

My sister gave us this yummy Valentine.
"Valentine, you are good for us."
You are pear-fect for me!

 You are 'plum' perfect!

 'Orange' you glad you're my valentine?

 I am 'bananas' for you!

You are the 'apple' of my eye!

EX Straw Special Valentine

I didn't have much time to do fun things for Valentines Day this year. Thanks to Pinterest, I found this cute download this morning from lilluna, and made a quick & easy Valentine for my mom.

Kids Hand-drawn Valentines

My oldest daughter wanted horse themed Valentine cards to give to her friends this year, and my 5 year old wanted pigs. Since I didn't have time to run them around to all the stores looking for specifically themed Valentines, I had them draw their own. They drew them last night. We scanned them in to the computer. Layed them out so that there were 2 on a 4" x 6" photo, and uploaded them to Walmart's photo center. An hour later, they were ready to pick up. We cut each one in half, and tonight my kids will be taping candies to the back.
Best of all, they were less expensive than the store bought Valentine cards, and my kids are proud to tell their friends that they designed these cards themselves.

 My little sister, Trisha passed away last week. Her funeral was today. She's been sick for over two years. She had 2 inoperable brain tumors and skin cancer during that time. It's sad that she got so sick. She was so healthy and active throughout her life. They tested her blood a few weeks ago and said it looked healthier than most people's blood. While in the hospital she got pneumonia. She was an incredible person. I miss her so much. My kids miss her a lot too. She lived across the street from us and was like a second mom to them.
