Valentine's Day Book Basket

Things are going to be busy this week, as we're getting ready to celebrate Valentine's Day with three parties this year!  Tomorrow we'll have a love-ly :) day at home, celebrating as a family....then on Wednesday, we invited the cousins over for a fun little party.  Except for General and Rose, all of the children are pre-school aged and younger - and they're just getting old enough to plan fun little get-togethers like this!  It's always so cute to watch them.....and with five energetic little boys between the ages of 20 months & barely 4 years, it's always a hoot!  Lastly, on Friday, our homeschool group will be having our first-ever Valentine's Party (very exciting!), which I'll be planning the snacks and crafts for.  :0)  So things will be busy, yes....but a lot of fun, too!

One thing I really want to do this year, is to work on building up our little library of picture books - especially to go along with celebrating the holidays.  Right now, we don't have any books at all for Valentine's Day....and since I still have some Amazon gift cards to put to good use...over the weekend I did a little research and ordered a few titles.  (I absolutely LOVE Amazon Prime....the free 2-day shipping has come in handy WAY more often than I care to admit, lol!)  Thankfully, three of the four books I liked were available to ship right away - and are due to arrive tomorrow! (The fourth will be here on Wednesday.)  I think my kiddos are going be surprised and excited to have a package show up just for them on Valentine's Day  ;)

Here's what I ordered....I haven't read them before, but they were highly recommended - and they all look great from the reviews I read.

And now I'm off to get started on some cleaning and Valentine's baking....I'm hoping (if all goes well!) to be back later with a few of our crafts and ideas for the week.  In the meantime, I've pinned them (and lots more, lol!) on my Valentine's Day board - if you're looking for any last minute ideas :)
