Valentines Day

Valentines with these two minis was super sweet and low key this year.
No holiday is complete without holiday pajamas in this house.  Im pretty sure pajamas, matching holiday pajamas that is..is my love language.  I can't get enough.  So its a no brainer that the girls went to bed all festive and cute.

I found these little envelopes in the target dollar spot and then added their names on them and made them into chair backers.  As usual I got them a few little goodies to make them feel loved and special.  Some chocolates and a rose lolli pop.  Brynn was so excited as evidenced by her shocked face!  & Jolie, that girl downed that whole thing of chocolate in I swear less than two minutes.  It was as if she thought it was something she shouldn't have and it was gonna be taken away any minute.  Im not sure she breathed haha.

Later on we made some pink cinnamon rolls.  Have no fear, they were pillsbury!  After last years Valentines cinnamon rolls, I definitely decided thats not worth the kitchen mess and effort.
Easy peasy it was this year.  I love these cute Valentine's aprons.  The girls were so excited to wear them and were dancing all around the house holding hands.

The rest of the day was super low key.  Nothing special...we actually even made tuna melts for dinner!  Nothing fancy over here.  But gosh do I love these girls and husband of mine.  Any holiday to celebrate how much I love them all is a great one in my book.

Life Lately

The weather has been so nice lately, the girls have been playing outside all day everyday.  We have even busted out the sprinkler and water hose.

Jolie has been modeling for smocked auctions for several months now and Brynn recently had her first modeling job with them also.  I never ever get tired of going online and seeing their faces in all the ads.  It is seriously like Christmas morning every single time.

We spent the last two weeks so sick in this house.  Jolie caught a cold, passed it around to all of us.  It then turned into a stomach virus for her..which then I also caught.  I should also mention this was our second stomach virus in a month.  These kids don't even go to school yet, I dread the day and all those germs.  Poor Jolie was so inconsolable and it was just so heart breaking, sink baths and popsicles made it a little more bearable.

We had one cold night this past month and so we did our first fire and roasting marshmallows/making amores with Brynn.  She had such a good time and thought she was extra special because we let her stay up after Jo to do it :)

For February Brynn and I decided to spread love through a different act of kindness every day counting up until Valentines Day.  I have really enjoyed this project with her and we have had so much fun spreading love everywhere.  We have painted pictures for the neighbors, left a heart note at my brothers house, delivered candy in secret at night to the neighbors door steps, gave treats to the mailman and construction workers and the list goes on.  I hope to make this a yearly tradition with the kids.

This weekend we took the girls to the farm.  We had been cooped up in the house sick for the past two weeks so we definitely were over due for a family fun day.  The girls loved petting all the animals and walking around.  Jolie was chasing chickens scream "bawwwwk bawwwk" on the top of her lungs.  & Brynn well, she was just in love with the horses as always.  There is nothing, nothiiiiing in this world she loves more and this has been a constant since she was an itty bitty girl around Jolies age.  Now if I could just win the lottery so we could move to our own farm and get this precious girl a horse of her own :)

Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I can't wait to bake and surprise these special girls with some sweet treats!
