valentine's day. a report.

k so...i just realized i never blogged about valentines day! oops. so...here goes.

first of all, i made cinnamon rolls. from scratch. i've never done that before. and while it was a little involved...it really wasn't that much of a big deal. i'll probably make them again someday. i ended up giving most of them away since i didn't want all that sugary fat ending up on my waistline.

also in the goodies department, jackie and i made sugar cookies! we cut them into hearts and stars and frosted them in this fabulous pink frosting. the color was exactly the same color as the making memories paint i had just bought. the paint is called lipstick and it seriously was the color of lipstick! the cookies looked awesome...and tasted pretty darn good too. again, thinking of my waistline, i gave most of them away.

i also made these super fun mailboxes for our valentines! i made one for each of us...don't know what i'm going to do if/when we have other kids...hopefully i can find them again. (i found them at target in the $dollar$ bin. my favorite part of the store! i just got e all his easter basket goodies from there yesterday and spent under $10...so sweet. i got him stuff like egg shaped sidewalk chalk, bubbles, a stuffed bunny...you know...the usual. but no candy. uh uh. anyways...i'm sure i'll blog more about it later. like maybe when it's actually easter?) anyways...it was a fun project for me. i think i'm going to leave them out all year long and fill them with surprises every once in a while. the question is though...will i fill my own? :D

the last thing i made was valentine's FROM e TO all his grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins. i just let him scribble on a piece of paper with a red crayon and then cut heart shapes out of the colored-on paper. once i glued them to doiles, they were pretty cute. hopefully next year he can be a bit more involved in the process.
