Today I Did Valentine-y Activities.

Yesterday one of my friends texted me, asking for a play date.  :)  This means we get our kids together to play while we gab our jaws off at each other.  It's fun.  Except the part where we have to keep our 2 year olds from maiming each other.  Hoping the social skills and getting along come soon...

We thought it would be fun to plan a couple Valentine themed activities for our girls (she has 2).   So, I made sugar cookies and she made frosting.  I supplied the sprinkles (because I hoard them).  And she also brought a bunch of pretty paper strips and showed us how to make a super cute, easy hearts garland.  I found a tutorial here, if you're interested.

Have you done anything fun and valentine-y lately?

Your heart garland turned out super cute, but not as cute as your helpers!

Looks like fun! It's good you can have a play date + you like the mom. It looks like they really loved your cookies!

We did a few things. I blogged about them. If you want to see our Valentines stuff go check it out.

Britt looks so demure in the photo in her red dress. How nice to have valentine-y activities. When I was young, all I do during valentine's day is making valentine cards for loved ones, never made cookies nor garland for valentine before.
