getting better all the time

It's Valentine's Day again.  I have to say that I am getting better at this whole school/holiday party thing, though I still have TONS of room for improvement.  For example, once again, I remembered to make valentines, but forgot those pesky little boxes the classes require you to make.  So, once again, I was throwing those together an hour before each party. 
Also, I didn't buy a single gift for anyone, not even a card.  I did order a gift for my husband, and even did it with plenty of time to have it here by today.  For some reason, my order was inexplicably canceled.  There wasn't time to reorder and get it here so I didn't bother.  Pathetic, I know.  We did, however, manage to find a babysitter for a couple hours Saturday and have dinner together.

I know that's a pretty big list of things I didn't do.  Here, however are some pictures of things I actually did.

We made Valentine's for the kids at school. 

Kennedy took these

These are Corrina's.  I got the idea and printable here.
I made card boxes

Kennedy's was the same one Corrina made last year

George's was made from the cake box I used for the cupcakes the morning of the party.
Here's the back. Imaginative, I know.

Corrina's was a heart shaped purse.  I forgot to take a picture.  If it's still in one piece after school, maybe I'll add one in.

I made cupcakes for both Kennedy and Georgia's class

strawberry cake on top, brownie on bottom.

the recipe is here.

I fixed heart hair.  I was way out of my element on this.  I'm horrible at doing hair.  Have you seen mine?

You can get a tutorial here.

I did Corrina's too, but again, forgot a picture.

So, Happy Valentine's Day to you.  What kind of Valentines/Boxes did your kids make?  Did your husband buy you something great?
