happy balentimes day

the kids usually swap the v for b and/or the second n for m.... so it's balentimes day over here.

i bought myself a holga camera that i have been wanting. i'm super excited to develop the film.
this little gem was on sale at fry's grocery stores for only $4.99. it will be a big hit for whomever receives it... as barbies are a hot commodity in this household.
p and i shared dinner with my bro and sis and their sos. (significant others)
S and i made the most adorable valentines ever for her class. we copied the idea from another blog. this blogger stopped blogging, i'm so bummed because i love everything she does, but all of her crafts are still online... katydid.

we cut out little hearts for heads... S decorated them all differently
we then taped bodies together out of strips of different colored paper. i ended up just using clear tape around them... it took forever.
next, i traced S's hand and copied it onto white card stock. i used an exacto knife to cut around her pointer finger... on the paper of course... not around her real finger...

we glued the heart heads to the mini bodies and slipped them on the fingers... and there you have it! custom finger puppets instead of candy. S was so proud and signed them all herself.

all gathered in her bag... ready to pass them out.
passing them out...
here are my other little love bugs on valentines day.... they selected heart inspired clothing to wear...
i made this little jumper for big S when she was in kindergarten. L wore it in kindergarten and now it's D's turn. looks pretty good, but then again it's really only been worn 3 times.
and to top a lovely day off, we decided to make crepes at 11:30 :) oooh... i also got a new phone that makes adorable little movies....

So now WE are going to just HAVE to have the crapes tomorrow! No whipped cream though... we are going to try peanut butter and banana ones.
