Birthday Planning

Image from kommunicated
My oldest turns 3 next week.  I can't believe it!  Where has the time gone.  He is no longer a baby or a toddler, but a little boy.  I look at him and am so happy with the type of person he is turning into, I just hope it sticks as he gets older.  His birthday is always hard to plan for because he is my Valentine.  I'm constantly struggling it how to manage the Valentine's Day part with making his day special.  We are having some friends over for a party on the weekend and school is having a Valentine's Day party so it will be festive if nothing else.  Today I am going shopping for the valentine's cards (fingers crossed I will do glow sticks this year - thank you Pinterest!) and this weekend I plan to work with him to make his Valentine box for school. 

This year instead of a normal shoe box, I'm using one of my fabric shipment boxes from one of my latest orders and fingers crossed am going to make a Lighting McQueen Valentine/Birthday box.  Of course with a 3 year old helping, I will be lucky to wrap the box in red construction paper.  No matter what it this weekend will be a fun craft weekend between making/printing the actual Valentines and making the box.

Of course, I still have yet to finish his blanket.  Remind me never to attempt quilting!  I have been working on it, but only a few rows at a time.  I'm getting more opportunities to work on it now that my surge in orders has subsided, for now.  I say this now and I'll blink and my order queue will fill up again so maybe I should get busy!

Now that we are a week away, what are you Valentine plans or activities you have scheduled?
