We actually did do a Valentine’s Family Night.  This is a very long overdue post, oh well:)  It was fun.  Grandma Pat joined us and we decorated the table and had heart shaped biscuits (thanks Vanessa).  The boys went on a heart treasure hunt and then we looked up the verses found on the backs of the hearts.  Some of them were about love and some were about crazy stuff like donkeys and such:)  The boys thought that was silly!  We gave Grandma a heart shaped box of chocolates with a little note around each chocolate that said one thing each of us love about her.  That was fun putting together:)  Lastly we made some Love notes to send to family members that don’t live close by.  It was a great evening!

I also had to include the fun cookies that I made for McCall’s class and the rice crispies with conversation hearts for Haig’s class.  The cookies were VERY addictive but I am personally not a fan of the candy in the rice crispie treats.  I love making sugar cookies:)

    Can I have the recipe for the sugar cookies and icing? I’ve never figured out how to do that cute icing thing. So, I just stick with Choc. chip! 🙂 LOL
