The Kids' Valentine's Day Party

I'd say the kid's Valentine's Party was an organized yet chaotic success!

Some of the boxes and containers that kids brought were so creative!!

And I was pleasantly surprised that SO many moms volunteered to bring treats and drinks.
We have an amazingly helpful and encouraging group of ladies!

Seemed like all of the kids had a great time...
Felt button covers for every occasion.
I cut multi-colored hearts out of felt, with a small slit in the middle of each one, to fit easily over buttons. Works with zippers, show laces, barrettes...
"Sucker mouths"
I cut lips and mustaches out of felt and poked holes for the sucker-sticks to go through.

My Artist and Nature Man loved it. Dash and Little Lad decided to stay at my parents' house for a "special time."
Gosh, I love these kids.
Look at those lashes, beautiful freckles, the chapped lips, and thick brows. Artist-child, you are beautiful!

And my darling Nature Boy, with his big eyes that turn green-gray or green-blue depending on what he wears. Love that "beauty mark," the dark lashes, and a grin that only his parents realize is mischievous.
I love "doing things": parties, activities, ballet, co-op, you name it. But my time has gotten too short and I'm officially saying "no" to anything else that comes up. Hold me to that. We're busy enough, and I simply want to be home more to just look, listen, read and BE with these kids.

We just got back from ours. I see you all had some children sitting down. Ours ran around the whole time. Great pics.
