How to celebrate Valentine's Day when you have kids

First, you have to make a yummy treat!

Then you help your 3 year old make 72 Valentines for school and family. I had to help out by shaving the crayons...he couldn't quite get the hang of it.

 Putting the crayon shavings between two layers of wax paper....cover with brown bag and iron until melted.

Then sandwiching the crayon paper between 2 sheets of construction paper! If you hold it up to the light it has a stained glass effect. Hugh had lots of fun with my hole punch and the glue...I had to help cut out the hearts.
The finished pile spread out to dry.
I got a delivery of some beautiful roses from Greg and the boys today....

Over the next two days Hugh and I are going to work on decorating the house. I have hundreds of paper hearts that were cut out of the Valentines so we are going to string them up for a nice heart garland to hang. I will blow up some balloons and I'm making some homemade wheat bread and we will have a nice family party!
