All in the Name of LOVE

So prior to the "Launch" of Cole's space party I took on what I like to call Valentine Chaos 2008. Last year I threw a little Valentine's shindig for some of the moms and kids in the ward. I wasn't going to do it this year, but I decided hey what the heck...what is one more party. So long story short...it kind of snowballed and 32 kids later we had ourselves an official love fest. I put a couple days on hold from Cole's party to draw and cut out hearts (in which I had help thanks Amy and Courtney). Then of course I had to finish valentines boxes for both boys along with valentines from each boy. Thank heavens my mom was here to help with the heart attack type decor. Overall the prep was pretty tame. With the prep all done, now it was time to party.


Not all 32 kids invited came, but it still felt like a lot. I think when all was said and done we had 29, not too shabby if you ask me. So after 29 kids ate lunch (heart-shaped pbjs and fruit) frosted and decorated sugar cookies, and made a valentine for their dads, it was official I was deemed the ward loon. Okay joking, though I did get some "you're crazy" I do really enjoy all the partying and I get a little bit of a thrill being the host...okay and a couple of ulcers. When all is said and done, I do this because I love my friends, and I love my boys getting to experience something like this. AND isn't this all for them anyway! They sure are cute, right?

Thank you Larissa! We loved it and we think you are awesome! I'm glad someone's crazy enough to throw all the party's, because I certainly couldn't pull it off.
