Family Valentines Day Countdown – Day #1

photoThe red and pink countdown  to the day of love and hearts has begun in our home  – Valentines Day that is.

Today while the kids were at school I unpacked the Valentines decorations and turned our house into a pink and red celebration to begin the kick off of our  countdown to Valentines day.

Once they arrived home it was time to check out our countdown calendar and read what todays’ fun would be.

“Bakery Treat” was the discovered fun .  I had purchased a few Valentines treats at the store bakery and had them ready to be consumed by some after school hungry kids.    Lots of smiles and excitement that the countdown has officially begun – Now they are wondering what Day #2 countdown fun will be.
