Homework Time

I try to make a habit of having Emma complete her homework as soon as she gets home from school. Here she is, working very diligently on her assignment.

I can tell Lilly always feels a little left out during homework time. She frequently asks, "Do I have homewook?" I found a Winnie the Pooh color workbook at the dollar store and it has been perfect for her. While Emma is doing her work, Lilly feels very grown-up and important while completing her very own "homework."

My Sweet Lovebug

I received these little notes from my friend, Kristen, who is a fellow mommy in Emma's class. Aren't they cute!

I placed one in Emma's lunch box this morning. When I picked her up from school, she immediately said, "Thank you for the note - I wrote you back." When I saw what she wrote, my heart swelled up so much I thought it was going to explode. She is my little lovebug.

Love is in the Air

Hello, friends! Hope everyone is having a good week full of hearts and sparkles. Valentine's Day (week) gives me another chance and opportunity to show my family how much I adore them. Here's some photos from last year. I began the day with heart-shaped pancakes and special treats waiting for everyone at the table.

Treat for John - Everything we needed for a cozy movie night

Treats for Emma and Lilly - Lots of girlie goodies

My parents surprised me with these ladybug and bee chocolate treats! Adorable!

This year, Emma and I made marshmallow pops for her classmates. I got the idea from Kristin at Grace Violet.

We wrapped all the pops and placed a personalized label on each one. I bought the labels from Kristin's sister. You can get them here.
