Too much candy will rot your teeth

Here is my crew after school on Valentines Day eating their goodies.

I never get tired of looking at that face! The kid was loving the chocolates. He took a bite right out of one of the mini chocolate bars with the foil still in its place. I wanted to take a picture of it but he gobbled up the rest of it before I got the chance.

I have to show off Ashtons' shirt because I made it! I let Ashton and Isaac design their shirts. Isaac is a simple guy which was awesome and Ashton likes all the bells and whistles, they turned out great though!

Some say that too much candy will rot your teeth and looks like they might have a case! Ashton went to bed that night one tooth short of when he started the day. It may have something to with the fact that it was loose before the day started and even more to do with the fact that Dad pulled the thing out and not so much about the candy. This is tooth number 4 for that kid! I tell you, they grow up fast!!!

I am a party person, my kids are party people. We LOVE to have parties and so we did a BOYS valentine party with cousins and some friends.  We played a couple of "don't brake my heart" games they loved!!! Here's game #1. It was supposed to be a relay but they just kept going till all the "hearts" were broken.


The boys were too funny. When the last egg hit, they new it! And they all had to scramble it to a gooey mess!

Game #2 was involved making cupid's arrows out of sticks from the yard and felt.  I then stuck a tissue paper heart onto some aluminum foil that was held in a needle point ring thingy and wedged into a tree. This time the boys were to put the heart breaking into skills into action.

This was a hit! Our last game was a scavenger hunt. I used little white cutout hearts and wrote clues with white crayon on them. After finding each clue they would have to paint the heart with water color to reveal the next clue until they found the treasure box of treats. We decorated treat bags, made bracelets for our moms and decorated sugar cookies. Too fun! I love these boys so much and am sooooo glad we got to celebrate.

Homemade Rocks

Ahhhh! There are so many things that I want to blog about, I just wish I could make the time...I've got 30 minutes, let's see how many I get to :)

For school Ashton had to have bring a rock collection which the studied and as a part of the course they made their own rocks with a dinosaur inside.  He brought it home and like the gingerbread house we made at Christmas, he wanted to smash it to pieces with his daddy's hammer. Here are the pics.

To be honest, I wanted to post these pictures partially because Ashton is super cute and partially because of what I noticed in the background of that last picture.  We had done sidewalk chalk earlier and I hadn't seen this little message Ash had written to me until I was looking at these pictures.
