~*~HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!~*~
I kind of dropped the ball on Valentine's Day this year. I usually get the kids cute outfits, get them a little present and make up Valentine cards for Rylie's class. This year? Not so much. I guess with everything going on I just got behind.
Would you believe that when I went out yesterday looking for a Valentine's Day shirt for Rylie I couldn't find one? Crazy, right? LOL So yeah, I didn't get anything for her to wear to school. Luckily she has a couple of shirts with hearts on them, so she had a couple to choose from and ended up wearing hearts, at least. I did get Bryce a shirt a few weeks ago, only because I happened to see it when I was looking for short sleeved shirts for him. It says "Chick Magnet" on it. That's my boy! I'll get a picture one of these days.
Luckily they are both too young to really expect some kind of present from their parents. Why? Because I didn't get them one. What kind of mother am I? Put me in for another one of those awards, please. All three sets of grandparents sent cards, so at least they will have those.
I am happy to say that Rylie will be taking little Valentine goodie bags to school to pass out to her friends. But that was even touch and go there for a while. The other day I was at Target by my office and they had a HUGE section of Valentine's Day cards, candy, gifts, etc. So imagine my surprise yesterday when I went to the Target by my house and the shelves were EMPTY. Seriously. They had one little section that had the packages of little cards, and one little section of candy, but that was it. And the only individually wrapped candy were 5 bags of cherry Three Musketeers. Gross. So I got some "3D" cards and left. Thank goodness for CVS. I was able to find a few bags of decent candy (Fun Dip, Reese's hearts, candy bracelets, Sweet Tarts and M&Ms) so that I could make up these little treat bags...
I know they're nothing special, but the kids just care about the candy anyway, so I'm sure they will love them! Hey, at least she's taking something.
Since I didn't get any pictures of the kids in time for this post, I'll leave you with their pictures from last year. These don't even look like the same kids! Especially Bryce! Flashbacks are so much fun!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Even if you think the holiday is a totally overrated Hallmark holiday, take a minute to let your Valentine know just how much you love them. It doesn't have to be with a gift, either. Well, at least I hope it doesn't, since I dropped the ball on that too. OOPS! :-)
