Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day Loves!!!
Yesterday I went to a Valentine cookie decorating party. Some of these ladies were hard.core. I was by far the amateur... but I decorated my cookies, caught up on a lot of girl talk, and laughed a lot. Always a good time.

Last night, Nick, Reagan and I went out to dinner .... we thought we were beat the crowds and have an early V-Day.... clearly we weren't the only ones with that idea! So after seeing lines outside the restraunts we had in mind, we ended up at Island for some burgers. It was still a treat to be with my two Valentines.

We don't really get into V-day gifts. Just cards usually. But I picked up a few movies for my guys (an ELMO Valentines movie for Reagan and "The Other Guys" for Nick).
Today at school was a fun and busy day with all of the Valentine festivities.

I got so many great ideas/printables from you fellow bloggers (thanks!!!).

We did conversation heart graphing, patterning, and skip counting. (Thanks to What the Teacher Wants). We also read lots of V-day books and wrote Valentine poems for our parents. At the end of the day the kiddos exchanged their valentines.

And check out the loot my first graders got me. They seriously crack me up. I'm not sure what it is...... but in the low income school I teach at , every year, my kids go all out for Vday.

Reagan LOVED the dancing flower. It sings Ashley Simpson's "L.O.V.E" and dances all over. He kept hitting it saying "more, more" and dancing along with it. Too funny.

Hope you are feeling as loved as I am today.
