    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    just so

    Happy Valentines! I know making sugar cookies isn’t anything new and original to do for Valentines… but I didn’t think that should stop us from having fun. Everything is new and original when you’re TWO!

    happy baking girl

    She is so much fun in the kitchen. She wants to “help” me all the time. I hope she grows up to love cooking and will cook me dinner every night. How great would that be? That probably won’t happen. I think I loved helping my mom in the kitchen too and look at me now. I just hope that doing all these fun things early doesn’t make them boring for later.

    I remember when I was eleven or so and I used to have friends over to visit. I’d ask my mom what we should do as an “activity”. She’d say something like, “Why don’t you make cookies together? That would be fun.” And I’d roll my eyes like, that is the most BORING thing in the world. Who wants to make cookies. OH Puleeeeze.

    What I really wanted to do was go hang out at the roller rink but for some reason that was always out of question. Finances? The fact that my mom didn’t want to drive us around town? Who knows. But I don’t remember making cookies with my friends. Which is kind of sad now that I think about it. Making cookies IS a totally fun activity to do with friends. I think we were more into washing each other hair in the bathroom sink and pretending to be hair stylists.

    I think she might be ready for play dough

    That all doesn’t matter now because NOW I have the most perfect friend to play with every day and she spends the night too! Woooo Hoooo! Oh, that’s right. I’m her mom and I have to change her poopy diaper. Why’d you have to bring that up.

    some sprinkles were involved

    Anyway, as you can tell we had a pretty good time making valentines. That may or may not have anything to do with how many sprinkles were involved. There was an incident where the lid shook off the chocolate sprinkles but that didn’t stop us. I think it made it more fun actually. Chocolate sprinkles EVERYWHERE!!!!

    heart cookies!

    Of course no Valentine’s Day is complete without some green hearts….if you’re Baby Bug!

    making valentines

    Then we made some homemade cardboard valentine’s cards and today (if we don’t melt from the rain) we are going to dress up as Valentine Fairies (Well, she will. I’ll be wearing a red shirt if I can find one.) and deliver them to our nearby friends. I wish you all lived near by!
