Flashback Friday:  Crafty Valentines

Flashback Friday: Crafty Valentines

Originally posted February 8, 2011

It’s the time of the year to hibernate and snuggle up to the ones you love. Nothing beats hiding away from the wintery blah. Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, we’ve opted to send out some love to our family and friends. Our daughter decided she would make the list and she included all the tots in her life. Cousins, friends, friends’ siblings…she sure does know how to spread the love!

When I was young, my father loved to craft handmade Valentines for each of us. We were always so impressed with his sense of creativity (and always will be!). It is my duty to carry on this tradition. What fun it has been with a two year-old! Cardstock, a few stickers, some pom-poms, markers and of course classic doilies make for some beautifully nouveau valentines.  Enjoy!

What We Ate:  Valentine’s Day Edition

What We Ate: Valentine’s Day Edition

I’m not a sucker for Valentine’s Day…usually.  Now that I have children, it brings on a new meaning.  Sure, it’s a “Hallmark Holiday”, but what better time of the year to celebrate nothing something?!  The weather is lame & there hasn’t been a holiday since Christmas…almost two whole months ago!  That’s a long time for kids!!

We’ve been up to a few fun things around here.  One of them was a simple food idea I found on Pinterest (see the new “P” button over there —>?  Follow me there, it’s so fun & addicting)!  Breakfast this morning was a surprise & the kids loved it!

Heart-i-ful Eggs & Toast

I didn’t have a heart-shaped cookie cutter so I used a trusty old-fashioned knife ;).  I grilled both sides of whole wheat bread with a little butter.  I kept the heart shape to dip in the over-medium egg & voila –  a fun little breakfast!
