Friday oldest stayed home from school not feeling well.
He had the whole sore throat_ congestion thing going on. Not fun, at all.
But we needed to get our Valentine-Making on anyway and so that's just what we did.
We have a few paint decks laying around our home so we grabbed one up
and made bookmarks that I had seen here.
The girls got a kick out of reading all the paint color names...Romantic Morn, Pink Mimosa, Frosted Tulip, Bleeding Heart, Kenny's Kiss. Who gets to pick all those names anyway?
We had fun trying to come up with our own names for each one....
By yesterday, oldest was feeling much better and wanted to go out and get all hot & sweaty while shooting some basketball, in the super cold weather.
We wouldn't let him...we couldn't let him and you can imagine how well that went over.
This is where the whole parenting thing gets a little hard.
We want them to understand that we're doing it for their good but they don't or maybe deep down they do but they don't want you to know that they do..ha!
Anyways, we made brownie sundaes with caramel on top and it really was the best way to close out our little Valentine's making weekend...even oldest had to agree.
Linking up this week with heather for
