Hope you have wonderful fun things planned to celebrate the ones you LOVE.
Little K is have a small class party today
No fancy home made treats
(at least not from me)
No Craft/Art project
(the kids could make their own valentine box/bag if they wanted)
I'm not even needed to volunteer in the class
Such is the life of a 5th Grader. Time for me to get used to the fact that they are more independent.
Even though it was optional - I think most of the kids will be exchanging Valentines
Here is what we came up with:
(sorry for the bad lighting - had to finish homework and music practice before working on the Valentines)
I was so excited that we made these using things entirely from my Scrap/Craft Stash.
There are dozens of different combinations of Red, White and Pink - as I was using only cardstock I had on hand.
I even had enough Black felt on hand to cut 30+ mustaches (or is it moustache?)
and a few extras just for Fun!
I got the idea for these cards from this cute post at The Craft Monkey Blog.
I'm resisting the urge to point out to my (very minimalist) husband how great it was that I had all this stuff on hand to make these cards at the last minute. I might not want to share just how much I have hidden away.
Little K's lunch was made of everything Pink and Red in honor of this Day of Love
and there will be some sweet treats when she gets home from school.
Peanut Butter Heart Cups
Easy Peasy - a teaspoon of your favorite peanut butter cookie dough plopped into a mini muffin pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes and as soon as they come out of the oven - push a Dove chocolate heart into the top so the peanut butter wraps itself around the sweet chocolaty goodness.
I'm currently cooking dinner for tonight - Crock Pot French Dip. Served with our favorite Petite Sirah and a Crusty French Roll and maybe a peppery Rocket Side Salad. That's romantic - right?
Have a Wonderful Valentines Day!
