Happy Valentines Day!!!


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!!!
