Lily has discovered her inner Picasso. She has been painting some very beautiful paintings for us and having lots of fun. She often has the paints out and her apron on before I'm even out of bed.
She had lots of fun painting Valentine's cards using a potato stamp shaped like a heart. She would stamp a heart for a family and give it a name..."this one is Amelia...this one is Sara..."

Valentine's Chair Backers

For Valentine's I made the kids these cute chair backers inspired by the Pottery Barn Kids chairbackers. I got the design for these at www.nofussfabulous.com/?p=3050. They were very inexpensive to make and involved no sewing. The kids can put all their valentine's cards in them and some treats too. I made Lily's very fancy with pink and red and zebra print.
Noah's was a little bit tougher with black and red ribbon and cow print.
Lily was happy to get candy, chocolates and a book for "Valentime's day". For here this is the pinnacle of all special days...lots of hearts, glitter, pink and fancy shiny ribbon. What could be better?
