While we don't celebrate Valentine's Day in a huge way, I do enjoy taking some time to do a few things that I wouldn't normally do on a regular old day!
On Thursday, Caleb (with help from Mom and Dad!) made valentines for the Grandparents...we put his handprint on them in paint, and gave him stickers (that spell his name) to place on them. Although they aren't quite in order (not that I expected them to be), he did a great job sticking them on!
Last night, my parents watched Caleb so that Kris and I could go out. We saw the movie Slumdog Millionaire. We highly recommend it, by the way! (We joke about the amount of movies we have seen in our entire relationship.....in 5 years, we have only been to 5 movies together, so we try to pick good ones!) Anyhow, we had a good time, and Caleb had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa (and Cubby)!
Today, I broke out the heart-shaped cookie cutter...and went a little nuts. =) We had heart-shaped chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast (Caleb's favorite part was the strawberries on top). He had heart-shaped grilled cheese for lunch, and we just finished making a mess in the kitchen by decorating heart-shaped sugar cookies!
Here are the cookies that he decorated:
For photos of the entire cookie-decorating (mess-making) process, here's a slideshow!
