Our weekend and kid's valentines!

I hope you had a great weekend! We sure did. The weather was beautiful. 15 minutes after they got home from school on Friday Kade and Kali Rose transformed into this:

 Everyone had a friend over on Saturday. They made their own pizza's and Kali Rose partied like this:
 Sunday was such a beautiful day, after church the kids took a couple baby dolls on an afternoon stroll. ;) (Blackmail for Kade one day... maybe.. Proof that he will be a good daddy one day... definitely!) :)
 Then, the kids made a pile of leaves and buried KR in it. ;) (yes, bath-time was directly after this little game)

I spent part of my weekend "surfing" the web (do people still say that?), looking for cute valentines the kids can make. I love Valentines Day. We usually have fun creating homemade cards. Here are some from years past. Sorry the picture quality isn't that great.
