Brian was so excited to look through the bag of Valentines in his class at school.  It was so awesome hearing the excitement in the kids’ voices and listening to them thank one another!  That’s what I remember about Valentine’s Day when I was a kid....

I made yummy cupcakes for Valentine’s Day.  Some had icing that was already pink colored (Pillsbury) and others had icing I colored and sprayed with the Wilton Color Spray.  Pretty cool, huh?  The kids in Brian’s class loved them!...

Flashback to the past when I was in Girl Scouts in Elementary School.  Me, my friend (Jan), and my Troop Leader (Rita) making Valentine’s Day Cards.  Being a Girl Scout definitely made a huge impact on my life and I’m so grateful for it!...
