Well, i’m awarding myself bonus points for getting the bulletin board finalized before February. It seems with each passing year I fall further and further behind! Is it just me? I should have it all down by now and be further ON TOP of things… right? In any case, after much inspiration from the Friend, the primary presidency facebook page, and my counselors, we settled for the superhero theme. And each month we will introduce our “scripture hero” (to see how we are introducing our scripture heroes check out this post). So here’s the finished board:

So my kids are big fans of the How to Train Your Dragon movies. And now that we have discovered the original Netflix series based off of the movies, I dare say they are obsessed. So I called Oldest into the office and we brainstormed some ideas for valentines day cards. This is what we came up with- what do you think?
I made two versions because in some cases its a lot easier to not have a “to” and just have your child sign all the valentines and hand them out to whomever. But there are both options for whatever rocks your boat 😉
Some ideas on what to do with these after you print them on cardstock (FYI I like to use white backgrounds when I plan on using my own printer, ya know, since ink cartridges cost an arm and a leg):
Your on fire valentine: Attach “hot tamales” with double sided tape (or any “hot” candy)
I hope this candy doesn’t leave you toothless: staple jawbreakers to the back
May our friendship last like a good hiccup: punch a hole with a hole puncher and slip a lollipop through it
Any other ideas out there?… Read the rest
As part of the theme “I know the scripture are true” the Friend magazine is highlighting a scripture hero each month. I have seen so many cute ideas on how to use these scripture heroes. I think we decided that for our primary we are going to have a “scripture hero” clue in the mailbox each week and on the last week of the month they can guess who it is. Hopefully we can even have that scripture hero make a surprise visit to Primary that day.

So if you are a procrastinator like me (I prefer the term “otherwise occupied”) and don’t have your bulletin board done for 2016 yet, here are some ideas and printables. Really you could use these anywhere around your primary room.
So I LOVED the idea to get engineering prints (so they are super big.. and cheap) from the Mormon Home. In fact, her engineering monthly theme posters are pretty dang awesome. I also loved the idea the primary in my old ward (good old Desert Willow Ward!) used several years back where they would ask all the primary kids as they came in each Sunday to “give me 5”. … Read the rest

Who’s a fan of decorating your house on the cheap? Ooo- me! me! I’ve hosted a couple events at my house this holiday season and have gotten a lot of comments on my entry table so I thought I would share with my lovely readers!
So we took our annual trip up into the mountains in search of the perfect Christmas tree. There always seems to be some obstacle in our way, last year it was the pouring rain, this year it was ice. The roads were so icy we couldn’t make it too far before we decided a Christmas tree wasn’t worth our lives and we would try our luck at lower elevation. … Read the rest
