I think what I like about Valentines day is that it's all about love. Well for my kids it's all about candy and treats and sweets, but for me it's all about love. I show it by baking for my family and making valentines. There is nothing better than a homemade Valentine. Then there is the crafter in me that jumps at a chance to help decorate my children's Valentines box. The best part is watching the kids dump out that box and read every card and thank every child who gave them a card. It's so sweet.
Here is what we did this Valentines day.
This weekend we made Valentine mailboxes out of cereal boxes. I hope to one day post a tutorial for this.
Then we made Valentines. I found all my ideas for these on Pinterest. What a wonderful place. I swear I'm addicted.
Yesterday I made pink peanut butter heart cookies. Very same recipe as the pink peanut butter hugs, but with Hershey hearts.
Then I made my first ever red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I thought they would be fitting for Valentines day. I liked them but I think they could really use more red food coloring. I hope to post a recipe for these soon.
Today I received flowers from my sweetheart. No Valentines day or anniversary or Birthday or Mother's Day is ever complete without flowers. Any reason to get flowers is a good reason. They make my heart happy. Thank you my love.
To top it all off I got to go to Myles Valentine party. It is always a treat to share classroom time with my little guy and his adorable classmates. It's even better when I get to bring treats and help them celebrate. Myles you make my heart smile.
So wow this is like three posts in one, but I just wanted to share what I've been doing and wish everyone...
Happy Valentines Day!!!
