valentine's day

These are the fun things we did this Valentine's season:

We made heart-shaped pancakes with blueberry syrup for breakfast today. You can find the recipe here. We substituted the raspberries in the recipe for blueberries. We poured the batter into a heart-shaped cookie cutter to get the pancakes into the heart shape.

Noah made heart-shaped valentines to give to his teachers at school. He asked Elmo if he wanted to join the fun :) Clay and I are both really impressed with how well he shares, even if it is a stuffed animal he's sharing with.

Noah and I made these fun bags to give to his friends at school. They were filled with Kool-aid Playdough. I thought it was a good alternative to the sugar frenzy that is usual at parties for little ones. Actually I was surprised that he had one cupcake at school and his goody bag was only filled with valentine cards and no sweets.

I made these cards to go on the treat bags. The first one had the verse, "God showed his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8). The Kool-aid Playdough recipe was printed on the second tag.
We also received sweet Valentines from MeMe, Dee, and Grammie. Thank you for making Noah and Jude's Valentine's Day so special!
