Valentine's Weekending Results

 St. Valentine's Day Advent chain was an awesomely fun project. Had the printer been cooperative, it would have been easier, but I learned how to write several different cute fonts, lol!


 Saturday morning, bright and early...Upward Cheerleading! So cute and I love how this program uses God's Word to train up Godly athletes.


 Had to make a small change in plans, to check on my grandmother who was in the final stages of Alzheimer's Sat with her a bit, held her hand and told her how much she meant to me as a child, as an adult and that it was ok for her to let go and head HOME.
 Next stop, Birthday parties for sweet little friends!
 Yes, we all skated...except dad, who says he doesn't know how and is too old to learn without breaking something!



 AFTER I tried to break my knee!
When we left the skating rink, we slid home in this...

Weekending

It's the weekend again and WE have big plans! Getting ready for Valentine's Day, Groundhog Day, a skating birthday party, a basketball game, worship, and the SuperBowl!

On Friday, with no school for snow and very cold temps (BRRR), We are starting with the Valentine's Day Countdown from Lacy over here at Catholic Icing! A simple, fun and PRINTABLE activity centered around God's love for us!























Next we are borrowing her "heart attack" idea from Linda from 71Toes over there because having a "heart attack"...looks like so much fun, and is a way to have our family members think about each other in a good way!















 We invited the big bros...


















and sissies:

















to participate and their hearts will be posted around the "home place" for the rest of us to enjoy!

On Saturday, we will get an early start at a 9:00 AM basketball game for which we need to arrive at 8:45 AM. Then a meeting with my super friend D to get my MK business rolling again! Next we will head to the library for a couple of Groundhog Day Books. After making our way home, we will wrap the birthday gifts for our friends,
















 talk about Groundhog Day and make a cute groundhog out of triangles, which we are borrowing from Almost Unschoolers, here.























Afterwards, we are will head over to the skating rink for some birthday fun with two of our favorite cuties. L and C! Pixie has a new outfit to wear, Thanks Grandma Pat, just because she made the Honor Roll!


















Saturday will wind up with  Groundhog Day Story Time, jammies, cuddles, a song, and lots of ZZZZZZZZZ's!

Sunday begins with worship, then lunch, REST DAY, and prep for the SuperBowl!


















Pixie and I will be watching alone because DADDY-O has to work. I can see popcorn,


















and other fun snacks in our future! I'm thinking football shaped brownies,



















Chips and salsa, and voting on the BEST SUPERBOWL COMMERCIALS! Then more snuggles and bedtime!

What a weekend! So much fun! And photos on Monday!

Y'all Come Back!
