Aiden, Izzy, and Connor's Valentine's

I went searching and searching for some cute valentine's for the kids to give away. There are about 17 kids at the babies' school and another several friends who I wanted to give Valentine's to. I know that they won't all want to give one Valentine together at some point in their lives, but for now I wanted one that I could put all three kids' names on. I fell in love with these from The Busy Budgeting Mama. I loved how cute they were and I loved that I could make two versions (one for little kids: fishy crackers, and one for bigger kids: candy fishies). I ended up sending all 17 in to the kids' school with the crackers. Connor LOVED them!!!

 I've been reading all these articles about how to take better pictures and I employed 0 of the strategies I've been learning about in the picture below (no interesting lines, no 3 sources of light...). Oh well. Haha!
 I had to take these in a week early because our daycare is closed this week. I literally used every s-i-n-g-l-e fishy cracker I had for these. I completely underestimated how many it would take me and I was determined NOT to have to go to the store at 10pm.
 Connor came home from his party with this ridiculously adorable Valentine hat. Normally the babies come home with them too, but this time it was just our big boy. He wanted to wear it at dinner. Sadly, he destroyed it first thing in the morning the next day. Oh the joys!

Connor got Mama's favorite as an after dinner Valentine's Day treat: Red Velvet Cupcakes!

 I couldn't find Aiden's Valentine's Outfit that Connor had worn a couple years ago. But I thought this Love Stinks outfit was pretty darn cute!
 I found the outfit the next day. I should do a comparison photo of the two in that Eligible Bachelor Outfit! Notice Connor without pants in the background...that's a frequent even in our household.
 This was the day before Valentine's Day, but I love all my loves in one photo! We tried bribing Connor with a piece of chocolate if he'd take a "good" photo. I know we're horrible parents. Good news is: it didn't work and we didn't have to give him the piece of chocolate. It looks as if we bribed Aiden and Izzy, though, judging by how happy they are!
Stay tuned for a post about my Valentine's Day!
