Project Life - Week 7

We started this week with Drew's 100th day of school.  He was supposed to bring 100 of something to school, so he decided to take 100 toy cars.  He and Jim had spent quite a bit of time the previous week counting out all the cars and carefully packing them into a case.  As we stepped out of the house onto the driveway on Monday morning, the car case hit a bump, came open, and dumped the cars out of their little slots.  We had to rush to get them all repacked and get on the road to school!
 Drew came home from school with a special 100th day hat and badge.
 Tuesday was Fat Tuesday, and Drew talked me into buying him a packzi from the grocery store.  He had a cream-filled one.
 That evening, we worked on writing out Valentine cards for Drew's school and Wednesday night church classes.  Drew had Angry Bird valentine cards this year, and he enjoyed choosing and preparing one for each friend.
 I made a candy bouquet for Drew to take to his teacher.
 Drew's school has a mail system in the month of February, and Jim and I sent Drew a box of Angry Birds gummies on Valentine's Day.
 We drove straight from school to our church that day for our church pre-school playgroup Valentine party.  We got there in time for lunch.
 After lunch the children played a few games.
 That evening, I made a fun Valentine dinner.  The birthday girl was ready to eat!
 I made pizza with heart-shaped pepperonis.  I cut them out with a little heart cookie cutter.
 We also had some fruit.  I put a little treat at each person's place at dinner.  Jim and Drew each got a Butterfinger heart, and Maddie got a couple of Little People Disney princesses to go with her castle.  The children also each had a Valentine card from my parents to open.
After our Valentine dinner, we had a heart-shaped cookie for dessert.  I put a candle in it for Maddie's birthday, and Drew blew it out for her after we sang.
 We gave her her presents from us after dessert.  Drew got her a popper, and we gave her a wooden clock puzzle, a bag of letters and numbers, and a doll quilt.  My parents got her an American Girl Bitty Baby doll for her birthday, so the quilt is for her new baby.  Jim and I are painting a doll cradle for the new baby doll too, but I didn't get it quite finished yet.  I will post pictures of the cradle and quilt when everything is done.
 Maddie loved her cookie, and she was covered with chocolate by the time she was done with it!
Here is my layout for this week.  This is how it will look in the album, across the page from last week's layout.  This week I made a big page about our week and an insert about Maddie's birthday party.
 This is how this week's page looks with the insert flipped.
 I used a Page J insert and was able to include lots of birthday party pictures.  This is the front of the insert,
 and this is the back.
 This is how this week's page looks.

We are supposed to get some more snow this week, and I am hoping to get a little traditional scrapbooking done if we end up with a snow day.  We'll see!
