Valentines Day is just around the Corner

I am helping out in 2 of my kiddos classes for their parties so I have been searching for some fun ideas.
I have collected quite a large list of crafts so I am sharing some of them with you-

Valentine Heart Pencils, these are what Miss B is giving out in her class this year.And another pencil card.

These Hershey Kiss Flowers are so cute.

Here are some cute Lollipop Mice has a ton of great ideas

These little chocolate gnomes are awesome.This hugs and kisses pot would make a wonderful gift for someone special.

I think Miss K is going to make some of these button hearts to give out to her class.

These little Chocolate Kiss Mice are one of the crafts I am planning to help them make in Miss K's class. Here is a link to a video of another version of them.

These little bag and clothespin valentines are adorable, I am making a few of these for some ladies I visit.

Here are some cute printable Owl Valentine Cards-CraftyChic has a lot of fun Valentine Projects as well.

I know we are going to play Valentine Bingo and the kids are going to decorate their own cupcakes, so I need to come up with 1 more game and I am all set :)

Happy Happy Happy

I am so happy to have received this sweet award from The Mommyologist
She has such a great Blog, if you haven't been over there, you should, it rocks.

With this award I get to list 10 things that make me happy-

1- When my children stick up for, comfort or freely offer help to each other, that really makes me get the warm fuzzies inside.

2- Reading new Blog posts from my Bloggy Buddies, I am so Happy I got into blogging, it is Awesome.

3- Coming home to a clean house, this is big on my Happy list, with 4 kids and 2 dogs and a Hubby who likes to spread the love, my house staying clean long enough for me to enjoy it doesn't happen very often. So very very very rarely when I come home and it's clean, sigh, very nice.

4- My Family, I have the best Siblings and Parents ever. They are always there for me to support me 100%. I am one lucky lady.

5-Crafting, sitting down and making something that turns out always brings a smile to my face.

6- Playing games with my kiddos, we love to play board games. Even sitting with Miss M and playing games online makes me happy.

7- Cooking, I cook when I am frustrated, sad, mad and glad. But by the time I am finished cooking my mood is always the same Happy. I love being able to create yummy things, it definitely makes me happy.

8- A good book, reading has been something that has brought me joy for many many years. There is nothing like finishing a good book.

9- Driving in the car with my Kiddos, we sing, play games, and are pretty goofy. We enjoy road trippin together.

10- Music, I love all kinds of music. There is music for every feeling in the world, and there are some that I like to play when I am needing a Happy boost.

I am passing this on to-
