The dogs even joined in on the festivities.  Goliath came in the kitchen with a heart stuck to his nose.  He probably thought he was sniffing out some candy and got the heart stuck there.  Valentines Party_0217 8

We went to a Valentines Party with some of our homeschooling friends.

We talked about characteristics of love and learned some history about St. Valentine.

We played a game where we split up into two teams.  Then you had to move hearts out of a bowl with tweezers.  The one with the most got a point for their team.   Valentines Party_0217 39 Valentines Party_0217 40

They played a game where you had to get the hula hoop all the way around the circle without letting go of each other’s hands.

The kids enjoyed getting letters, lollipops and gifts in the mail from their family.  Below Ari is playing with a knitting loom that Nana sent for her.

Chris and I traded babysitting with friends for Valentines Day.  We went out one night and then they went out the next.  We went to Bahama Breeze and enjoyed some of their yummy Paella!!  Then we went to the bookstore and hung out and talked. 

How did you celebrate Valentines Day?
