Be Mine!

Happy Valentines Day!!

This year we had some fun. We decorated heart shaped cookies, I am surprised we even got any pictures before they were eaten.
Kallie is in preschool and got to pass out valentines to her class. The decorated a big envelope in class, so we didn't have to worry about a box this year.
Shantel on the other hand, had to make her very first valentine box. Being the somewhat crafty person I am, I wanted to make a GOOD one. She didn't really understand what we were doing, so I googled valentine boxes to giver her a little ides of what to expect. I asked her what she wanted to make and at first she said flowers, until we came to a picture of a castle, then it was all over. A castle it was. I think I had more fun than she did making it. It brought back lots of memories of being a kids and trying to make the best box in class. ( I wasn't nearly as creative then, as I am now)

Here is the end result, not to shabby, if I don't say so myself. I also got the chance to help out in Shantel's class which was a lot of fun. I got to see her in action with her friends ( and see who her friends are). They played games, made a lovebug and frosted cookies. What a great time.
As for the actual day, I had to work that night (BOO :( ), so Gary and I went out for lunch (alone) and a little shopping. Not too exciting, but I guess that's what happens when you are old and married.

Go Steelers!

I never though I would post anything about sports..that didn't involve my children or Gary, but today I must say...Yeah Steelers! I think I may have the biggest Steeler Fan living with me. Everything he does or has revolves around Black and Yellow aka Steelers colors! Well after a few years, the Steelers were back in the Superbowl!

Being the party gal I am, I had to thow the best bash ever. Starting a little late, all the steelers, decor was sold out, so I went with the old fashioned...do it yourself. I went with Black and Yellow everything and went to town! Lots of food, friends and of course FUN!
It was a close game and a nailbiter all the way. After a 100 yard run and touch down, stupid called by the refs, and an amazing last minute tuchdown. The Steelers won their 6th superbowl!
