Twas the day before Valentine’s Day…and procrastinators unite for #funfriday!
I picked up the kiddos and we headed where everyone else goes at 5pm on the day before Valentine’s Day – the Dollar Tree!
Our mission: 1 gift for each immediate family member!
The girls got to choose (I steered a little haha – otherwise Brian would have ended up with a princess flashlight!!).
I only had to threaten to put all the gifts back once, they straightened up.
Their favorite part? Balloons. For themselves, of course.
Note: Kylie got a “Happy Birthday” balloon because it was the only one with Minnie!
We ended up with the normal Valentines – ya know: flashlights, rubber gloves, rubber ducky scrubby things, socks (lots of socks) and happy birthday balloons! All for less than $20 – I’d say it was a success!
We’re making our own Valentine’s cards by giving each family member a printable page of 10 Things We Love About You – you can print your own too:
We also tried a non-candy Valentine for all of Kayla and Kylie’s classmates. I found this one on Pinterest last night and it turned out pretty cute!
All in all, we had a fun afternoon – the dollar store can wear one out!
Happy Valentine’s eve, y’all!
