Valentines party

I never got a chance to post about our Valentine's Day.  We started the day out with chocolate hearts on our oatmeal...

 A local homeschool group was having a valentine's day tea party, but it was too early in the day for us to attend and I thought our own would be just as much fun.  While the boys were napping, I decorated the playroom so that it literally dripped hearts... then spread out a table with heart shaped almond butter and jelly sandwiches, strawberries, fresh blueberries (special treat since they are not in season, although not in theme), and heart shaped watermelon.  The tea was actually chocolate milk...  all in all, a great way to wake up...

We participated in a homeschooler's valentines exchange by mail, so after we ate we opened valentines.  I gave the boys blank US maps, and they colored in the state each valentine came from before they opened it.  Next year, I am going to try to sign the boys up on different lists so their completed maps will be different because they were constantly comparing which states they had colored in -- I think the maps were more fun than the actual valentines!  Although, they certainly loved all the goodies they got too!  And, they've had tattoos on various parts of their bodies ever since!
