We recently had the Jesus Lamb's Valentines Day Party at our church. My friends Kandis, Lana and I decided to set up, decorate and host this party for the kids. I think we did a good job as it is always a little harder to get together and plan a time when everyone is available to be at the church with kids. I took Sophia one day and she wasn't happy that I wasn't paying much attention to her. She broke down several times and I was very thankful to go home that day. :) Everyone had a good time the day of the party we had some really yummy food and of course lots of desserts. We did two different crafts for the kids...for the younger ones we had a red construction paper heart cut out for them and then they could glue bits of colored tissue paper to it, draw on it or put stickers on it. For the older ones we had bookmarks cut out for them and they could decorate them however they liked. Lana's husband Chris then took the kids downstairs and read them a story about how Jesus loves them. The kids also exchanged Valentines day cards. All the kids brought in boxes and decorated them and then when they all were done they went around and delivered their valentines to each other. I think Sophia had a good time she usually does when their are food and friends involved oh yea and daddy. Daddy is her favorite person right now and it is so sweet. I think she thinks he hung the moon it is so sweet to see them together. Saturday mornings she runs into the bedroom and climbs in the bed with him to watch cartoons. :)
Phil and I didn't do a whole lot for Valentines Day. It is really impossible to get a babysitter for that day so we just made dinner here and exchanged cards. I made him some "cake" cookies that I will post a picture of. I got them off of the Bakerella blog that is listed on the far left of my blog. She has some really yummy recipes.
