Valentines day decorations

I love decorating for all holidays. My kids love it and I enjoy too. My plan was to make most of my decorations, but like always time was an issue and sickness played a big roll this time. I have a couple more things to make. I hope I have time! I thought I would share a few.
A printable I got off of Pinterest of course!
I got this plate for christmas and I love it. I can change the attachement for any season or occasion.

Tough Thursday,sick kids

Today has been rough. I hate when my kids are sick and I feel like I have no control over it. I hate to see my child throwing up and crying because her tummy hurts and she says "go away sickness" breaks my heart. The one advantage I have is I work from home so if I need to cuddle with them I can. I just do not know  how sickness can over take you sometimes and how it just happens over night and all you can do is pray for quick recovery and hope medicine can fix it.  I had one on Tuesday that had a stomach bug, one today with a stomach bug and then my son came home from school and said his throat hurt. strep it is. 4th time now. Kindergarten just kills us with so much sickness. Amoxocillian and mortin are our best friends right now,
   Hopefully this ends soon. January has been by far the worst month for sickness ever. Moving on to Feb.

 On a better note, I am in the process of putting some Valentines decorations out and making some. My kids love when I decorate for holidays, so that is why I do it. I will post as soon as  I have them finished. I was reading Melissa's blog and she posted about  iphone wallpaper for Valentines day. I had to do it and love it. She got the idea from  let's lasso the moon,

      Hope everybody is staying Healthy and check back tommorrow for InstaFriday

Help

Ok my readers, I have noticed I have dropped 2 followers and really annoyed . I know I am not the best blogger but want to get better. Some of the blogs I follow have a ton of followers and have not been blogging to long. How do you keep followers and how do you come up with blog topics? I work full time from home and may not have a bunch of time to take pics and write but I want to grow my blog and so I need to make time. I had a giveaway and no one even responded at all. It kinda frustrates me. I would love some advice and ways to get and keep my followers.
I love comments and am getting better being a commenter myself. Maybe I just have to work a little bit on it but time can be a issue. Any ideas would be great.
Thanks.

Weekend

We had a good but busy weekend. Always seems like there is something going on. Sat during the day we got some errands done and then Sat night Ryan and I had our Annual Christmas Party in Jan. it was a fun time. At the party they had a photo group and it was to be silly. Sunday we had church and then right from church I went to the spring premiere for thirty one gifts. A lot of new spring looking items. Cannot wait to share with everybody.

wreath

So many of you already know that Pinterest is my favorite website handsdown. I have gotten so many ideas. After the Christmas decorations came down I wanted something different on my front door. I decided to make a yarn wreath. Here is the turtorial on how to do it. I used different flowers.I also used a big round styrofoam ring from Michaels,but you could use a smaller green foam round one or a straw one and leave the plastic on. We are painting our house this spring so my door will be black and the black center of the flower will go better. This was so easy and I am going to make more.

Ringing in the new year

We had so much fun new years eve. It was spent with our Awsome neighbors.
