Saw the cute heart crafts on Meg Duerksen's site. Vance was able to cut his own hearts, but I helped Vaughn with hers. She arranged them and is very proud of her work. "I made that!" (Construction paper sandwiched between sheets of clear contact paper. Easy peasy.)
Heart shaped pizza for dinner (a la Papa John's & the kids could've cared less that it was heart shaped - bummer) and cupcakes for dessert. To top the cupcakes, I melted chocolate, put it into a baggie, sniped the tip, and piped out hearts and letters onto parchment paper. After they cool, only 15 minutes or so, they lift right off the paper. (My chocolate was still a little too warm and therefore runny when I piped the designs. Make sure you let it cool first!)
Goodbye Valentine's Day. Next up, "Little Green Man Holiday" or St. Patrick's Day, as Vance calls it.
