I am the room mom for Annabelle's second grade class...I try and switch year-to-year, being room mom in my kids classes; last year I was the room mom in Charles' class. Basically, my role is be in charge of the classroom parties: Halloween, Christmas and Valentines. I am happy that I now get a break from parties until next year :). And since I knew I was going to be doing parties again in the future, I planned ahead and made games that I can reuse. Here are the three games we did for Valentine's this year: Pin the heart on the arrow, Valentine Bingo and Valentine Headbanz . For Headbanz, I printed out a page of 9 or so Valentine Headbanz cards that I found on pinterest, and then I added some of our own that had red/pink as a major color, or some festive foods like cake and lollipops etc; I also brought a couple of my elastic headbands to add to the 6 in my Headbanz box because I knew we'd have one group of 8.
Not every dance was a couple dance. They had quite a few that were singles, like the Boot Scottin' Booty, the Hokey Pokey and more.
We had waffles with strawberry sauce, eggs and hashbrowns for lunch,
then we made a couple of healthy, fun treats like heart shaped shortbread cookies (whole grain and maple syrup sweetened)
and our date-sweetened blondies,
and finished off with salad and our traditional heart-shaped homemade pizza for dinner.
Here are some "couple" pictures I found of Scott and I from over this past year:
|My bday dinner and double date with my sis Becca and her hubby|
|When Scott got home to us in CO from one of his long trips to UT|
|Temple date; we do these monthly; 2x/month now|
|Just after we finished up our first mini-triathlon|
|At a BYU bball game|
|On thanksgiving, getting our exercise in before the feast|

Love you Dearest!
