Valentines Day

**WARNING: Picture Overload**
We started the day out by making pink heart pancakes. Colton liked to dump the mix in the bowl then had to stir it. I'm not sure where he learned you should lick the spoon but mid stir he decided to try it...gross! I think he liked the batter more than the actual cooked pancake. Weird child!

I also decided this year to attempt homemade sugar cookies. Colton once again was a great helper with rolling out the dough and pressing hearts in it but I believe he liked eating it more! Frosting the cookies was hilarious. He would put the knife in the frosting and then instead of putting it on the cookie it went straight to his mouth. I think he couldn't believe I was letting him eat it so he just kept going like the "deprived of sugar" child that he is. He also had fun with sprinkles. We delivered the cookies with our valentines.

I believe on Valentines everything should be heart shaped, so for lunch we had a heart peanut butter sandwich and dinner a heart shaped meatloaf. We had a fun day spent together and I felt so lucky all day to have Colton as my "Valentine" this year. I could not have asked for a better one!


  1. Oh! Those cookies, pancakes, and everything look like the best! It is so fun when they start getting old enough to "help". What a sweetie!

  2. Cute! Looks like you guys had a fun day. :)
