The baking bug~

I love to bake goodies, eat and share with others...especially during the holidays when I can get the kids involved. And what better time to make frosted heart-shaped sugar cookies then now! My boys and their friends got together yesterday for a fun day playing in the dough. (Check out Kyle's new favorite attire--pajamas and a necktie... what a funny kid!)
The girlkins............. Since the girls are too young, I had the boys make valentine hearts. Poor guys!! They loved it!!
Duck-duck goose was a great way for the kids to release all of their energy after the sugar fest. Colby liked to 'whack' instead of 'pat' our heads, OUCH!!

Looks like fun! Also, we would love to go to dinner with you on Thursday night. The only thing is that our flight doesn't get in until 6:00 so we wouldn't be able to go until around 7:00 or 7:30. Let me know what you think.
