Just Some Simple Valentine Fun

Mondays around my house are catch up days. I do okay keeping up with everything during the week, but after a full weekend---well-- my house usually looks like a hurricane just blew through. Every room seems to be disheveled and in need of some serious TLC. Because we are in and out all weekend long, I tend to let things go a little more than I do during my normal week. Monday mornings are usually spent working on getting things back in order, so I can take on a new week feeling somewhat organized and prepared.

After spending the majority of my morning tidying things up, the kids and I had a little valentine fun in the afternoon.

We made Heart Cookie Pops.

Putting cookies on sticks make them taste so much yummier,
at least that's what Riley told me;)!

I just used a sugar cookie mix that I had on hand.
(Just be sure you follow the "cut-out" cookie directions!)
Cut out heart shapes.
Place on greased cookie sheet.
Lightly push popsicle stick into the cookie, and then place another heart shape cookie on top. Pinch sides together.
Bake @ 350

--our favorite part!

...and then EAT---okay, so maybe that's really our favorite part!

EASY Valentine Fun!

As usual, that's a great idea! We always make cookies, but I'm thinking we should try those!
