Happy Valentines

I'm not gonna lie, this week was a lot of work, but it's important to make holidays special and memorable which usually requires planning and effort. We had so much fun cooking and crafting together! Jared and I wrote things that we love about each of the kids on hearts and put them on their doors each night leading up to Valentines so this morning, their doors were plastered with hearts! The kids and I worked on making Valentines and Valentine boxes during the week and yesterday I baked most of the day. It's only Valentines morning and I'm already treated out. It was fun spending time together and enjoying each other's company. You just can't beat creating memories! How do you celebrate Valentines with your kids?

We made these darling rice krispie treats which we cut out with heart cookie cutters and dipped in melting chocolate and added sprinkles. The kids gave these to their friends. I made these completely irresistible nutella stuffed chocolate chip cookies with sea salt. They are amazing! For breakfast this morning we had heart shaped cinnamon rolls. We are all on sugar overload, but completely worth it! 

Most of these ideas came from Pinterest, seriously, thank goodness for Pinterest, what a lifesaver! Happy Valentines to everyone!
