2016 Blue Jeans Week 6

Had a fun Valentine's week.  Valentine's Day is a big deal at our house.  Lots of traditions.  We do a special Valentine's day dinner that my great-grandma started when my grandma was just a little girl, so going strong for the 5th generation now with my kids having it.  As just our family, we do a valentine's box and fill it with homemade valentines for each other. Homemade cards are a big deal at our house too.  It was a fun week.  Take a look. . .
Years and years ago I made these valentine bean bags and bought this heart bucket for a classroom party game.  It is part of our Valentine's Day decorations that the kids always look forward to. "Are the Valentine's bean bags out yet?"  Mr J playing valentine bean bag toss when I got them out this week.  Fun memories.  I think I made them when Miss A (now a senior) was in kindergarten.

Everyone hard at work on their homemade valentines--a great family tradition.

Another big family tradition is our family Valentine's box.  Everyone decorates a side

We open it on Valentine's day and pass out the awesome cards and share the love.  Lots of fun!

I had to head out of town early one day this week, and the sunrise was so pretty.  

Had some basketball games this week.  Miss O scored 6 points in her game.  Awesome! 

Ended the week on an amazing note--we got to see the excellent show of SIX--which is 6 brothers--no instruments, all voices and they were absolutely amazing!  They are in Branson, MO and if you ever make it there, it is a show NOT to be missed!  Our whole family went and LOVED it!!!

Hope you had a great week!  Come back soon!

  1. You guys really go all out for Valentine's week which is great and looks like a lot of fun. Beautiful sunset. We've had a lot of pretty ones too much I'm always driving when I see them and can never get a picture. The concert looks like a super fun way to end a great week. Glad you all had a good time.
