This year I decided to keep Ava's Valentines for her class more on the "simple" side! Don't get me wrong, I love sitting down and crafting something cute, and perhaps over the top, but this year for the sake of time, we went the simple route! And she is still pleased as punch at the end result. I loved the Valentine's we made last year, but simplicity was my goal this year! And simple it was we had these whipped out in about 5 min for the whole class.

I found some very cute store bought ( shame on me!) Crayola themed Valentines and taped them to a box of Crayons. What kiddo can't use a new box of unbroken and sharp crayons! I didn't want to go  the candy route this year because, let's face it the amount of candy they come home with is insane, and with Ava's sensitivity to red dye there is really not a lot of Valentine candy she can eat.So crayon's it was!

As for me and the hubby's Valentine's, we have also decided low key is our motto. I actually am not a sucker for the marketing hype that Valentine's Day has become in the secular world, HOWEVER I do love to celebrate those that I love and most of all my Savior's love for me on Valentine's Day. David and I picked out a "Labor of  Love" project to do together this year for Valentine's Day. ( thanks to Pinterest I had a lot of help picking out a project) ;) ........that will be revealed at a later date. I am super excited because it is something I have been wanting to make for a LONG time!

I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with lots of  love!

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

Psalm 33:18
