In January I decided that since Valentine's Day was on a Friday, I would let the girls have a small party where they could invite a few of their friends. Really, Mackenzie invited her friends and since all 3 of them have siblings Meredith's age, she had friends too! At Christmas I discovered the nail stuck in the wall from the previous owners was perfect for one of our wreaths. It was also perfect for our Valentine's wreath I bought a couple of years ago and never hung up! I think this spot will become our wreath spot for all of the holidays. Now to find 10 more wreaths for the remainder of the year! ;)
I originally planned to make my own chocolate and strawberry playdough. But it didn't happen that morning between getting everything/everyone ready and nursing/caring for Miranda. So, we pulled out the playdough we already had. I'd say it was still a big hit based on the amount of play dough that was on the ground after the party. ;)
Earlier in the week, Mackenzie and I made a banner to hang up. Another Target dollar spot find.
The big girls...
These dairy free sugar cookies were delicious! I may or may not have eaten the other half of the unbaked cookie dough all by itself over the next couple of days. The kiddos had a lot to choose from when it came to decorating the cookies.
The little kids enjoyed it too!
And just because Miranda slept through most of the party, I had to take her picture at the end of the day when she was no longer wearing her matching pants! ;)
Note to self: when taking VALENTINES pictures, don't have child lay on a CHRISTMAS blanket! ;) Well, that's Valentine's 2014! Next year, Mackenzie will be in Kindergarten and have her own party, but maybe we can still do something for Meredith and Miranda.
