Saturday was a FUN-filled, LOVE-filled, SWEET-filled day for our family!
We started out our busy day by heading to our local mall for a Valentine party. About twice a month, our mall hosts some really great family-friendly activities. If you're a part of the "kidget" program, which our family is, then we can attend all these great events for FREE!
We totally love anything FREE!
We met our good friends, the Robinson's, at the mall for a morning of nothin' but pure Valentine sweetness.
And speaking of sweetness, check out these yummy cupcakes the kids decorated.
With lots of sprinkles and treats to choose from, theses cupcakes not only looked pretty, BUT tasted quite yummy too!
The babies enjoyed decorating their treats, but of course, they were definitely more excited about tasting them.
Sophie wanted a "beautiful pink flower" on her cheek---just like Leah's,
and Hudson asked for a "race car that goes BERRY fast" for his.
This picture made me smile.
I LOVE how everyone is looking on and admiring Hud's blue "berry fast" race car;)
Riley had a hard time deciding on what he wanted.
He wanted something that was bright and colorful.
After thinking and thinking, he eventually chose a rainbow...can't get anymore colorful that than huh?!?
I guess, boys who are over the age of seven, are "too cool" to have their face painted anymore, so Micah and Corban opted to just have their hand painted instead.
After the kids were all painted up, they jumped on the "Love Sac" for a quick photo.
And yes, Shane convinced me to hop on the "Love Sac" with him as well.
The kids spent the rest of the morning making special "get-well" Valentines for kids in the hospital AND decorating sweet Valentine frames. They ALL were having so much fun that groans of disappointment could be heard when we finally told them it was time to head home;)
Saturday evening, we held our own little family Valentine party!
After everyone was bathed and dressed in their pj's, they headed downstairs for the "party"!
We enjoyed pizza, games, and some yummy fondue fun for dessert!
After dinner, Shane and the kids went into the living room for a few silly Valentine themed games. While they played, I cleaned up our dinner and got ready for the fondue.
How about a round of see-who-can-toss-the-conversation-heart-into-the-bowl, OR...
a rousing game of Valentine leap frog--ha!
With the chocolate melted, and the ingredients required for dipping ready, the kids headed back into the kitchen for dessert.
Yup, I know EVERYONE would agree wholeheartedly that this was the BEST part of our night!!
I mean, seriously...
is there anything better than chocolate covered...
well, chocolate covered ANYTHING!?!?!?!?
I am ESPECIALLY fond of sweet, little,
chocolate cover fingers;)
