Valentine Morning with the Teabo Tribe

I set the table with some valentine surprises, pirate loot for the boys, and sweet little purses and pearl necklaces.
I extended a valentines note for each child from the ceiling using fishing wire, the loved this and it look so cool hanging over their chairs.

The centerpiece was just stuff from around my house, my gaol was not to break the bank, while giving the kids something sweet and spacial this morning.

The boys as they were coming down the stairs in the morning at about 7:00am sharp :)

Sweet Valentine strawberries, I also attempted to make heart pancakes, but while at the store I noticed ,now that I am on a serious crunch budget, how expensive pancake mix is, so I attempted to make my own buttermilk pancakes (not pictured.) Lets just say it came out more like a Johnny cake, if you have ever been the Jamaica or the Caribbean you will know what I mean. It matched the pirate them a bit, so there you go!
Strawberry milk, but of course served in a skull cup ahh LOVE!

My niece Natalie enjoying the festivities with us!

Look at this sweetie! We had such fun this morning, and it didn't take that much time of prep work. The kids loved the detail and even though I had something more elaborate in my mind of what I wanted it to look like, I am just working on being flexible! I am making some neat plans for Snowman night on Tuesday cant wait to post pictures.
