We stopped by Tea with Mrs. B’s for a sweet crafting tea! The kids loved dressing up and making homemade valentine’s. Love this place they do Snow Day events and Charm School for the girls too!
The kids will have a blast in the snow but at one point you gotta come in and warm up and drink some cocoa. Then what? It’s a perfect time for them to make their valentine’s for those they want to share the love with. I’ve included some that are wasy to do. You’ll just need to grab a few things while you’re at the store before the big snow hits! For more ideas on beating cabin fever including how to paint the snow check out my segment on KLG & Hoda.

I recently sat down with Denise Mattison, the Ashburn mom who saw her ex pull the trigger destroying her new life and new love. Shortly after her husband’s death Denise found out she was expecting the couple’s first child. This Christmas talks about what she is thankful for despite losing so much.
I woke up extra early so I could watch you sleep a few minutes longer before heading to work. I have to be honest… I’m a little sad I won’t be there the moment you open your big brown eyes and realize you are FINALLY five! You’ve been waiting for this moment your whole life…so you tell me. I just want to say how much I’ve grown to love you always asking what we’re doing tomorrow even when I doubt I’ll make it through that day. I’ll never forget that time in the car when I tried to hide tears from you but somehow you knew… and without a question offered to fill my bucket. And I will always remember when you threatened to run away this year and I found a picture of you and me holding hands in your getaway bag. The stories could go on but the bottomline is your heart is so big and ours are overflowing because of it. Happy birthday sweet angel. We love you.
