Valentine’s Day ’12

14 Feb 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day! Oscar and Lucy have just Gorged on chocolate and cookies, and now they are shredding the living room while I escape the sugar madness, and write this post. Crossing my fingers I can get this done before Lucy runs out of candy hearts. (Considering how many she shoves in her mouth at once, my chances are slim.) Here we go:

This was a couple nights ago, but it was a blockbuster when I posted it to facebook. iPhones get all the best moments.

Cookies on the agenda! Nanu took the day off from work (yesterday) and we baked together!

The recipe was, ah, a fun adventure

Manual labor, and another recipe where we just winged it.

Oscar’s valentines – 25 3-packs

Kristi’s goodies made the morning! K – you are a True Fairy Godmother!

Lucy is 100% infatuated with the tiny Dora lunchbox, with candy hearts inside

Must eat some cereal.

Our parrots joined us

okay – go get dressed!

Oscar made this for me and Dad.

What time is it?

“It’s Love Time!” – yes he actually said that.

Lucy and I got matching tats.

The Whitman Sampler, in mini, for Lucy! Thanks Nettie!

The smell of plum blossoms is in the air (“Pink Trees!”)

The loot Oscar brought home

And the best Valentine of all:

Chief cleaned my kitchen!!! XOXO

Valentines Day Party At School

14 Feb 2011

This was the sweetest little class party you could imagine. Ms. Ruth runs a tight ship – always – so the kids know how to behave. They were excited and happy, but no one was shouting, running around or causing friction. It was pretty amazing. They were busy little bees, passing out their valentines, or cookies, or other treats. They all had decorated paper sacks to keep all the goodies, and pink-heart napkins. The Valentines are so cute with the kids hand written names on them! Total flashback.

Lucy did pretty well! (Did you see her new rain boots? Thanks Kristi!!)
She sat at a table for a long time, with her sippy cup and some treats. The chairs are just the right size. When she got a little braver, she toured the classroom. The kids are all really nice to her. When she saw the big bin of crayons, she grabbed two giant handfuls of them and tried to make a break for it. Other than that she was pretty well behaved. I suppose it’s contagious!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2011!

Have a great Valentine’s Day!
Here’s what our day looks like so far….

I stayed up last night making these sugar cookies with royal icing. Think I made enough??

As usual, click the photos to see them larger.

The butter dish is a gift to Lucy – I found it at Anthropologie.
The frog inside is a key chain for Oscar (for his collection!).
The assorted Valentines are for Oscar’s kindergarten teacher, for his classmates, and from others for us. My favorite Valentine is from Mark to me, a letterpress V from Jessica Hische. Oh, and the Phone!! From Lucy’s Fairy GM, Kristi with love (such a hit!) XOXO
