People often ask me why I bother “going all out” for the holidays. Just look at those two sweet faces and you’ll have your answer. The Lord, in His wisdom, knew that if He wasn’t going to give me any girls He better give me boys with an eye for detail and an appreciation for decorating. Speaking of children and Valentine’s Day, V-day has come early to our home. Matt has been on a waiting list for a vasectomy and there was an unexpected cancellation on Friday. Matt is currently moaning and groaning upstairs as we speak. I decided to celebrate my loves (and the fact that they are the last little loves) with the following early Valentine’s activities.
My nickname for Zephy is “lovebug” so I thought it appropriate to make these little gluten free lovebugs for my lovebugs. The boys LOVED them (even the moaning one upstairs).
Asher saw a Valentine’s activity in his Ranger Rick magazine last month using jello jigglers and has been bugging…I mean begging me to make them ever since. Neither of the boys even like jello jigglers, but they loved decorating them for Daddy.
The following is probably more than you care to see, but I made a funny card for Matt and I’m amused by my own creativity. On the front of the card I placed a bunch of romantic stickers. Inside the card I placed a funny message and encouraging scripture, and then glued the number of “baby preventers” necessary before the vasectomy is official.
On his bottle of Valium, I placed the following funny sign.
Enjoy the humor!
