Happy Love Day

It's that time of year again - time to celebrate our loved ones with what else? sugar and chocolate and all things sweet! The Nerd and I took advantage of free babysitting on Friday night (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!) to celebrate Valentines' Day. We ordered food from Chevys' and picked up some chocolatey dessert and movies from the local grocery store. It was a glorious, kid-free time.
Today is the Drama Queen's first Valentines' Day school party. Being a crafty soul like her mother, she wanted to make her own valentines for her friends. We found lots of great ideas at Family Fun and settled on these lollipop flowers.
The petals are hearts cut out of sturdy scrapbook paper, and the leaves were cut out of green construction paper. The stem and flower center was of course a Dum Dum lollipop, and we stuck all the "flowers" into a foam brick for easy transportation.

I love cupcakes, and these fun Fruit-By-The-Foot roses were another idea from Family Fun. I am sure the Drama Queen and all her little friends will enjoy these sweet treats.
My other two valentines are home watching Busytown and are thrilled beyond words that Mommy allowed them to have a cupcake for breakfast! Today also happens to be the Spud's half-birthday, and we always celebrate half-birthdays with cupcakes. Luckily, the Spud could care less that the cupcakes have pink frosting. :)
Happy Valentines' Day everyone! Oh, and pop on over to this blog to wish my good friend Rachel a Happy Birthday today!


  1. Those lollipop flowers look great! What a neat idea! And the cupcakes look yummy too!

    We're going to have waaaaaaay too much sweet stuff in our house this year because all 3 kids will be having V-day parties today. Yikes! Good thing my husband can take it to work and let his coworkers eat it. That way I won't! :)

  2. holy moly that's WAY more effort than we put into it this year. the boys got store bought cards and one took suckers and the other an ice cream topping (the had a ice cream sunday party)

  3. We did the lollipop flowers one year. It was a good bit of fun. :) Yours turned out great!
