Valentine Wands

Our friends Susan and Kevin came over last night. You may remember, Susan is my "crafty" friend. She came over before Halloween and painted pumpkins with the girls (because their mother is artistically challenged).

Last night, she came armed with her craft supplies - even a glue gun (very exciting for someone as craft-clueless as me)! The girls made Valentine wands. Here are some pics:

Lily intently watching Susan using the glue gun. She was very impressed :)

Putting the ribbon on the wand - the finishing touch!

Sitting with Ms. Su-Su on the sofa. They sure do love her! By the way, for those of you who know all about Melissa's Fund, Susan works for Huntsville Hospital Foundation and is actually in charge of Swim for Melissa (in addition to all of the other MANY things she does there!). She is one of my dearest friends and I love her for all that she has done to make Melissa's Fund so meaningful to so many families!

The girls were so proud of their wands! This morning, Ann Catherine was going through the house doing magic spells. The girls love Ms. Su-Su and had so much fun last night!!

After all that excitement, we let the girls make Valentine cookies. What a fun night!

Those wands are so cute! I hope you all have a happy Valentine's Day! If you have any extra cookies, send them my way. :)

Well, Ms. Su-Su was finally able to get on your blog and read it! Yea!

I had so much fun with y'all that night. Now, on to the St. Patrick's Day craft! ;)

Love y'all lots!
