Happy Valentine’s Day!

We thought these cute T-shirts were perfect for our Valentine’s Day family photo :). Thanks to Uncle Michael (ST) and Auntie Tanya, for sending them this past Christmas! P.S. Yes, this is the best photo we got lol!

On Saturday we had a nice Valentine’s party with the family. Grandma gave the kids stickers, which is why everyone ended up wearing them by the end of the night, especially Julia and Gabe! I made cupcakes as usual, but this year, thanks to Family Fun Magazine, I knew how to make heart-shaped cupcakes, by putting a little ball of foil between the cupcake liner and pan :)! We also tried many Valentine’s activities and crafts I saw on Pinterest. Here’s one fun and easy Valentine’s Day treat we tried: heart-shaped whipped cream for our hot chocolate!

To make the Valentine’s hearts for your cocoa, you just need to spread some whipped cream on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then freeze it. Once frozen, the whipped cream can be cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter :)!

If you’re interested in seeing some of the paper crafts we made for Valentines Day this year, check out this post at Jess Gordon Design.

Besides the ones I already blogged about in this post and this one, here are of some of the other fun Valentine’s Day crafts we made:

Heart shaped Valentine card that folds into an envelope for Papa

“Long Distance Hugs” for Nina

“I love you because…” dry-erase sign

“I love you this much” Valentines for Grandma and Auntie

And the day is still young ;).  Have a great Valentine’s Day, my friends!

      Thanks Rita! Yes, my babies are growing up so fast – but we’re just trying to enjoy every minute of this age while we can :). Mmm, chocolate sounds like a great idea!!
