We were quite busy with Valentine's Day last week. Even my bread turned out shaped like hearts.
I really hope to find my bread pans soon, because this was not planned, it was just a coincidence. An uncannily accurate coincidence, as Klenda pointed out!
Actually, knowing that she learned enough anatomy to diagram a loaf of bread does my heart good!
In other news of the missing, I can't find my normal heart cookie cutters. I had one that was rather large, so I decided to go ahead and make my favorite cookies, just not as the usual sandwich cookies.
|Problem? What problem?|
As you can see in the background, we also got 2 dozen heart balloons which are still floating around the house, being used for fun, games, and neutral bouyancy experiments.
I also found a package of adhesive mustaches!
Not all Zoomlians loved this idea, but the Zoomlians that loved it, really loved it!!
And of course there were valentines!
Lots and lots of valentines!
Our friend, Amie,who is living with us, made gorgeous, intricate valentines of the various favorite animals (that bottom one is a tapir!) which the Zoomlians are using as puppets!
And, naturally, there were valentine sweets: the older Zoomlians set up a treasure hunt for the younger Zoomlians, and then the younger Zoomlians set up a treasure hunt for the older Zoomlians. The treasures were conversation hearts and heart shaped gobstoppers (called, alarmingly, "heartstoppers!").
And we had a jello heart (which got mostly eaten before I remembered to get a picture), and a big pink strawberry rice crispy heart (which got all the way eaten before I got the camera).
And, of course, Pink Burping Cows...of Love!
We are kind of crazy about Valentine's Day, and I think I've figured out why: it's a holiday that celebrates love, and that's what we do. We love people.
Not perfectly, of course, but that's really what our family is about: God gives us people (including each other) to love, and we do.
