Valentine Cookies

The kids decorated Valentine cookies tonight to pass out to friends and neighbors on Wednesday.

Just a few to give out this year. I didn't have the patience for too big of a project. Is there a Valentine version of "bah humbug?". If so, I'm totally qualified to use it. Last season, we made cookies from scratch....icing, too....the kitchen was covered in flour and dough....it was a several hour ordeal.

This year, I found the pre-made cookie kit made by Wilton at Target with everything you need to complete the project. I'm not one to make short cuts like this, but it sure was nice this time!

They both really love this tradition and Jack got into it, with relatively little shrink in inventory.

Our baby girl sat and watched this year, just as Jack did in 2007. I have a feeling, though, that next year Lainey will be running the show.
