Valentine Day

Our Valentine Day has been full of baking, crafts, and special memories!

First I made cake balls for my husband to take to work.

I have seen a variety of these, but decided to use Jen's at Scissors & Spatulas for my inspiration.  I just changed up the combination of flavors.  There are so many possibilities.

{I didn’t think he was going to go for it when he saw me decorating with hearts, but once he tried them he was great with taking them and sharing them with his co-workers.}

First make a sheet cake and let it cool completely.  Next, crumble the entire cake in a large bowl.

Mix in an entire container of frosting.

Use some type of utensil such as a coffee scoop or melon scoop to make uniform sized balls.

Next dip in chocolate, place on wax paper,  and decorate!

After the cake balls were ready to go….we began making our valentines!

I completely stole this idea from Kierste at Brown Paper Packages


Give it your own style with some cute paper.


And my valentine for my hubby…


Some cute paper, ribbon, and a hole puncher is all you need.


Print your pages using a word document or similar program.


Cut the bottom of the pages with decorative scissors to appear ripped.


What’s for dinner?

We did a nice day out over the weekend, so tonight I decided that we would have the family favorite.


And finally….. some loving moments with the little guy today. 


Some play time….


Some sweets….


“I am going to figure the whole puncher out”


Such a special Valentine’s Day to be able to share with our 15 month old son!
