Happy Valentines Day
I just love Valentines Day, it makes me so happy for so many reasons. I love the candy, the decorations, the colors and making all of the heart treats. But most of all, I love watching the girls pick out their favorite Valentines and getting them ready for friends…..(I still try to persuade them on choosing the “Pinterest” valentine, but I keep losing). In the long run, their choice is a lot less stressful for me and more meaningful to them.
A few of my favorite things this Valentines were:
1.) Watching Gracie be very careful and thoughtful of who got what Valentine, especially the boys.
2.) Hattie writing her name on every Valentine so quickly.
3.) Making Valentine boxes and laughing how the foam hearts say “text” or “tweet” me.
4.) Talking about love and watching the expression of disgust on their faces.
5.) Making and sharing Valentines cookies.
6.) All of the joy and happiness that they had opening all of their school Valentines.
We love giving treats to the neighbors for every holiday and here is what we did:
Cookie Decorating Kit
This was super easy, inexpensive and cute.
What you need:
1.) 8×8 cake/cookies boxes
2. Squeeze bottles (found in the baking section)
3. Plastic condiment cups, small bags, or prepackaged sprinkles.
4. Homemade cookies and icing (recipe here) I love her recipes.
5. Baking twine or ribbon for the finishing touches.
*After making my icing, I transferred it into a large baggie. I then cut a hole in the corner and squeezed it into my bottles.
