family joy blog linky parties

Wow, are we really having our 4th Family Joy link up party this week?? Thank you for making this link party possible, and sharing your posts that bring your family & friends joy.  I am loving visiting all your blogs weekly and checking out new comers blogs as well. You all are very dedicated bloggers and enjoy what you do. It’s so nice to meet you all and learn more about you by you sharing your links with us.

Sunday is will be Valentine’s day. Are you all prepared with your gifts for your loved ones? Anyone have great and fun plans made? My husband and I talked about going out on a date sometime this weekend. I am crossing my fingers it happens. We need a night out on the town together. The kids and I just got back from our annual Asay cousins Valentine cookie decorating party.  My sister in-laws are always so good at hosting a cookie decorating party for the kids each year for Valentines day and Halloween. The kids have a blast playing and eating lots of frosting and sprinkles.

We would love to hear what your plans, parties planned, traditions are for Valentines this year! Don’t forget to comment below in the comment area. We will be checking out your posts you link up and leaving you a friendly comment as well. Welcome to Family Joy Blog Link Up Party!

    For Valentine’s Day we will be having our own little party! We will be making heart-shaped sugar cookies and chocolate cupcakes. We play a few games like Valentine Charades and then we watch some Valentine movies. Like ‘Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown’…and ‘Valentine Pooh’. We are saving our Valentine date for Monday(cause that’s the day Nana has off to babysit) and we are going to walk around the mall and go to Olive Garden for lunch!! Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
