This was Valentine’s Day 2016– A random sweater that I rarely wore and just like that it’s perfect for the occasion!

So no need to buy something special (but that’s always fun too😉), just search in your wardrobe for a little festive coloring!!❤️💜

Never mad about fruit and chocolate!! (I guess he isn’t either, especially since he had the entire strawberry in his mouth, stem and all😳)

 There are so many fun ideas out there for Valentine’s treats, so if not these pick your favorite to share with your littles!! To make these all you need are:  Strawberries, sprinkles, and the key ingredient is Ghirardelli Melting Wafers👌🏼

Today we made these fun candy heart bags!

Since Grayson is a little young to complete his own craft, he helped by chewing on the candy wrappers, making lots of messes, and had lots of belly laughs!

I thought spreading love to others would be a fun way to take the typical “Valentine’s Love” to a new level– hoping to reflect a little of the love that Christ has shown us!  Grayson and I delivered our candy heart bags to the Nurses that helped with him at Emmanuel Hospital. Just a little thank you for putting their ❤️ into nursing!!

Lastly I hope that whatever you chose to do with the special people in your life, that you simply enjoyed the time together.
