Candles and Hearts

Some pictures from our birthday/valentines celebration.. and a little storm called Nemo (which stopped any and all weekend birthday celebrations : ( plus D was sick.. double sad face)


my first attempt at cake pops.. I have made them before.. but never frosted, decorated and put them on sticks before..


and I got shoes for my birthday :)



For Valentine's Day a group of us mom (who have mainly only interacted online in a local parenting group) decided it would be fun to have our kids mail each other Valentine's.. D and I got together to make this heart crown and we received and still are receiving so much cute mail.


Then came Valentine's Day and M went down with the flu.. and romance died so I baked shortbread.



and D crafted some heart melting cuteness at school.. 





I had saved some of the cake pops I had made the week before, the less than round and perfect ones and upcycled them. Whipped some whipped cream with peanut butter and topped with chocolate sauce. The perfect concoction.




Even with all the fevers and phlegm.. it was not all bad.. and a lot of good. Cuddles and snuggles and lazy days spent in pj's.
