Homemade Valentines and Cookie Bars

Thank you so much for your birthday wishes for Grace! She enjoyed reading them, too.
Valentines
On Monday, the girls made Valentines for their Faith Keeper friends. Everyone had lots of fun exchanging their little cards.

Cookie bars
I made a batch of Cookie Bars to take along. I substituted Valentine M & M's for the chocolate chips.

Today was busy with errands and I got my hair cut and colored. Hopefully I can get my Valentine decorations up tomorrow, since it's less than two weeks away. Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

HI Kelli! I bet the girls had a lot of fun making the Valentine's Cards. They are adorable. Have I ever told you that I think you are a "wonderful" mother?

Tomorrow is your special day to celebrate. I bet your kids are planning lots of fun for you. :-)

Love, Debbi

We are going to make our homemade valentines this evening after dinner. Even our 17 year old son is excited about it this year. I found an idea and went through old magazines and found red pages so the kids can cut out red hearts...

Why do I think that I am going to have more fun than they are tonight?

Love the valentines! I'm trying to decide whether Kaia will make them this year, or if I'll get her the High School Musical ones that are only a few dollars at the store. I'll probably let her decide.

Those cookie bars look so yummy!

Angie said...

What great inspirational cards! I think my girls may enjoy doing something fun like that this year instead of the boxed sets! Thank you for the idea!
