I LOVE your hair

In honor of Valentine's Day Razy spread love to everyone by sporting her heart hairdo.  She LOVED it and couldn't wait to show it off...especially to her new idol Taylor (our babysitter).

Nothing is better than when your kids share their love for one another1

You Are A Blast! Valentine Treat

I know that Valentine's Day is over, but I didn't get a chance to share with you Lil' E's choice of Valentine for his class.  This was super easy to make.  And With left over Christmas Candy it was a very CHEAP one to make as well.
What you need: Hershey kisses or hugs, roll of lifesavers (ours were from our Christmas storybook candy, I have also seen it done in rolos), paper, tape, and glue.

Let's get crafting
Cut red paper into a 3.5x3 inch rectangle.  Measure your candy to make sure this will work for you.
Cut and tape a yellow flame to one end of the lifesavers.
Tape the red paper around the lifesavers
Glue the kiss to one end of the lifesavers.
Then write your message.
VIOLA you know are ready for lift off.

We will give you a hint...They are "out" of this world.

Valentine Treats

I bought a bunch hershey hugs for something and I ended up not needing them.  I didn't want them to go to waste so I searched for something fun to make.  I found these cute little snacks.  They were super easy to make.  The kids really enjoyed making them as they were able to do most of the steps themselves. 

What you need:
Hershey Hugs and/or Kisses
Mini Pretzels
M&M (for any occasion)

Lets Get Baking:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Place pretzels on cookie sheet and on each pretzel place a kiss or hug. 
Melt chocolate for 2-3 mins
Take out of oven and quickly and carefully add an m&m or two.
Place in freezer for 5-10 mins to let settle.
