Valentines Day Fun

We had a lot of fun on Valentines's Day! I made HUGE sugar cookies that were sooo yummy. I am not very good at making cookies so I was impressed with myself. While I made the cookies Ava ate them. She was in heaven. I don't think she has ever enjoyed a food more than these cookies. She ate a whole cookie by herself!
Then Ava made her daddy a Valentine's card. I have been wanting to get her hand and foot prints so I decided to put them in her dads card. It was a huge mess but luckily I was prepared. Ava thought it was so funny that she was covered in black ink! She also enjoyed the bath to clean it all off!!

This is what Ava's card to her daddy ended up looking like. There are also three other pages not pictured with a poem, a picture of Ava and a page with I LOVE YOU DADDY! It turned out really cute.
My mom got Ava a bag with treats and Ava was so excited. I love that about her - she gets so excited when people give her things even though she has no idea what it is!

Later that day the doorbell rang and on the doorstep were Valentines for Ava and I from Christian. He got Ava a cute Classic Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal with a card. She loves stuffed animals so it was, of course, a hit! He got me a really cute shirt and card that I LOVED.

For dinner we got Applebee's To Go and enjoyed a nice dinner at home. We rented "Martian Child" but Ava decided she didn't want to watch it so we will be doing that tonight.

We had such a nice time and I love any occasion when we can do these kinds of things together!

How fun! The card you and Ava made is so cute, you're much more creative than I am. I might have to take some of your ideas! :)
