Week 7 – love

February 18, 2012



Of course, “love” was easy enough to capture this year. Valentine’s Day is a holiday loved by the whole family (well, my husband is resistant to giving cards, but he enjoys the treats just like the kids).


I made heart sugar cookies – these things were HUGE!   I decorated with whipped cream (from the can).   For the pink middle, I defrosted a few frozen raspberries and used the juice to color the whipped cream.  I really am trying to avoid artificial colors when I can (sure wish M&Ms had natural colors, but I conceded for the holiday by buying M&Ms and candy hearts).
7 - love

The Valentines cards and treats for my family, laid out in the kitchen while everyone was sleeping


The ornaments from last year came back out, and I made a heart garland to further embellish our tree. The kids loved it!

    Such nice things to do for your family!! Valentines always seems to surprise us – we are in the groove after the Christmas break, and usually have our sights set on spring break. The cookies look yummy.
