Before bed, we had to finish making some heart shaped cookies. Well, some of them were heart shaped…some of them resembled organs. I didn’t photograph those.

  1. All of your projects are so cute!! I LOVE the handmade valentine from Harper to her Daddy. What kind of paint did you use for that? I definitely want to make one for Scott tomorrow!

    • I just used regular acrylic paint from my art supply stash! probably not baby safe, but she didn’t have it on her long enough to stick her hands in her mouth before I wiped it off. Do one at a time then wipe after so it’s basically dry- will still be pink hands until you hold them under the faucet, but it’ll be dry enough to not get everywhere! Harper hasn’t figured out that she can put her hands in her mouth when they have stuff on them either, so that worked to my advantage. We did hers in the high chair and used a plastic plate for the paint dipping. Let me know how it goes I wanna see pics on fb!!!

  2. OWL CASE!!! I seriously love that, and your goodie basket is pretty hands-down amazing. Whenever I see stuff like this, it makes me jealous of the ladies whose husbands get them gifts like that. I’ll give Adam a list of things I want, and invariably the gift I receive is nowhere close. Example: Christmas I asked for some books, and a piece of jewelry (had the SKU and everything, on a business card from the store). I received a hard drive for my laptop. A hard drive he was so effing excited about getting me that he showed me 2 weeks before Christmas, ruining the surprise of the only gift I got, and then didn’t bother to wrap it because I “knew what it was.”

    Based on the above, I doubt I’ll get anything for Valentine’s Day. But I am making a special dinner for us on Saturday. All the ingredients will come from our farmer’s market, and it will be a sea scallop and some sort of beef dish combo. I can’t wait until next year when I can do crafts and stuff like that with the Widget. The first year I feel like I’m missing out on all the fun kid stuff because he’s too little to do anything but pee in his diaper, then on me, then laugh at the damp Mama.
