Be My Valentine!

Olivia spent hours preparing for her first Valentine's party. She meticulously cut out the shapes to make these....Then signed her name on all of them....They are sucker ladybugs whose wings open! (before you tell her she's a creative genius, I'll tell you that she saw the idea here)Then she packed them all in a box to go to her first Valentine's party.She picked out her best Valentine-esque outfit to wear to the party.She did a great job passing out the cards to all of her little friends.We crafted bags for the kiddos to take home all of their loot in. Olivia made a bag with crazy hair...wonder why?
The babes were getting fussy so Kati brought out her guitar to sing and they all got really quiet and enjoyed the show. Here are some of Liv's favorite Valentine friends....

We sort of got a group photo but some people had already left. I must admit I think her favorite Valentine (besides me of course) is Ben. Just look at these two buddies....Here's two videos that I thought were adorable for three reasons
1. The way Ben says Liv (Wiv) and says she's cute
2. He's teaching her colors...I think he's the smartest 2 year old, he knows all his shapes too including diamond, oval, and rectangle!
3. Wotis instead of Otis...too cute!
Anyway all of this fun happened on Friday and then I got to spend the real Valentine's Day with my hubby buying new pots and pans! He also made me a very sweet card (and wore a tie *gasp* on Sunday). Sadly I didn't get a picture of the 3 of us but I had a wonderful first Valentine with my daughter and hubby. How was your Valentine?
