The day of Love

Happy Valentine's Day! I know this is considered a Hallmark holiday to most but around here we love celebrating it and today's post is all about it!

Our morning is going to start off with heart shaped pancakes and heart shaped strawberries, I think the kids will love it.

I'll have their little gifts set out on the table and I can't wait to see their cute faces

Our house is a little decorated for the holiday, nothing major but of course I decorate my mantel, it's one of my favorite things to do!

The banner is from the dollar spot at Target

I made the LOVE sign a long time ago, you can actually see that post here.

On the front door I hung the LOVE wreath I also made a long time ago.  Although it's missing a red flower, not sure where that went over the years!


And thanks to Beth, I started posting all the reasons I love my kiddos on their door this year and they are loving it. I actually ordered these heart post its on Amazon and it's been super easy just to write something down and place it on their door. The heart hanger is from the dollar store.

Last year we made these adorable Valentine's Day brownies and since they were from the box, they were super easy. You can find the original post here

Easy Valentine's Day Sweet Treat:

Since me and the hubs have a dinner date tonight, the kids will be having dinner with Grandma. I'm sure there will be no shortages of special treats!

This pic of my loves is from last year, hoping I can get another one recreated this year!

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day! I sure am excited to see the cards the kids made me, that's honestly all I ever want!

I'm off to get ready to host 2 class parties today, woo hoo!
