Happy Hearts Day!

And let,
your arrow go....

 straight to my lovers heart....
(nice love song, about getting shot through the heart with an arrow, lol)
I love the oldies love songs though!  They are cute and fun to listen and dance to.

I love the vintagey valentines...but...
Homemade Valentines....there isn't anything better!  My son made this one for me in preschool, a keepsake I will treasure forever!  I made my husband a valentine heart much like this the year I found out I was pregnant with my son...inside the heart I wrote in crayon:

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Inside of me beats
Two Hearts for you!
I think that there is nothing that says I love you more than taking time to get creative and make it

Valentine tea from Bigelow tea company..white chocolate black tea and cinnamon apple herbal.
mmmm, a sweet drink.

Valentine sweets for my sweets!

One of my sweethearts....all fancied up for school and ready to hand out his
valentines to his classmates.

 Valentines all ready to go to classmates with treats attached.

Valentine goodie bags I made for my daughters...This year I ordered these adorable lil Kleenex holders from my bloggin friend, Linda, over at Prairie Flower Farm, she is the sweetest soul and designs her own fabric and patterns as well as sews all kinds of homemade goodies. I have been hinting to my hubs that I REALLY want one of those cute bags she makes, (hint, hint, hint, giggle {{honey}}).

Well, I got those holders because they were just so stinkin’ ca-ute in their pretty fabrics and will all of the sniffling colds going around they were also practical....I tucked a few heart chocolates in there, a jam jar of lip gloss, pink strawberry whoppers and some purty notecards, topped the bags off with some scrapbooking paper and there you go...
I LOVE YOU to bits!
My son gets a heart shaped box of chocolates with his favorite Disney Cars on it and a few other little boy goodies...
For my husband, I am making him some Vodka Penne with Shrimp for dinner. 
A romantic dinner at home in front of the Fireplace....with our children!
Some years we get to go out, just the two of us, but most years it's the five of us, lol!

Some easy Sweet Treats...
Valentine cupcakes tucked into individual little bakery boxes
Covered Marshmallows,
If you can melt chocolate, these are easy to make and the kids really love them. 
For Valentines day I used strawberry marshmallows and white chocolate and some valentine sprinkles on top.  I dipped them in the chocolate and put them into mini heart cupcake cups for a festive look. 
You can easily put them onto lollipop sticks instead, a great project to do with your kiddos

Chocolate covered pretzels drizzled with pink and red chocolate, melted in a Wilton candy melter.  I picked one up from Michaels craft store....great deal and worth it for the chocolate projects, I use it throughout the year for alot of seasonal treats.
On another note...
We have had several snow storms this winter, and we have had alot of fun being snowed in, all snuggled down together in the house.  We can go a few winters here on the east coast without any snow at all, but this year sure has made up for it. 

The last few pictures of Winter's seasonal beauty...

I have to now say that I am excited and ready for spring!
Looks like we have 6 more weeks to go though, (thanks Mr. Groundhog)!

I wish you all lots of hugs and kisses from your sweethearts!
Take care,
