In the weeks leading up to Valentines Day, I had an idea to throw a kids only Valentines party at our house. This would allow my kids a chance to hang out with some of their friends, and would ALSO give the parents a kids free date night for V day. Thankfully, my servant-hearted hubby was on board with my idea too. I sent out the invitations and 10 kiddos RSVP'd!
|The boys and I had a blast setting the table and putting out the decorations|
|Keaton made a name tag for each of our guests (and Mark added a sticker to each)|
|Of course, Little Miss had to get all dressed up for the party! Here she is with her Daddy Valentine.|
|Her brothers are kinda crazy about her too...|
The party started at 4:00 and the boys were literally waiting for the doorbell to ring at 11:30!
|Finally our friends arrived! Here's the boys table.|
|On the menu: hotdogs, mac&cheese, fruit, and lemonade!|
|The girls were outnumbered!|
|After dinner, we had a cookie decorating contest!|
|Here is the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize cookies|
Some of the other activities included Musical Hearts, Valentines Bingo, and a special Valentines day Chipmunks movie. We were so busy that I didn't remember to take any more pictures! We partied until nearly 9:00. It was a wild night, but so much fun for everyone. Maybe a new fun Valentines tradition?
