I'm a little early...

So, Valentine's Day is still a couple days off, but I love holiday baking and couldn't wait! Of course, it has nothing to do with Nate working until at least nine every night this week, and I'm really annoyed by most of what's on t.v. these days. Aren't these darling? I can't wait to make deliveries and share a little Valentine's love. And Sistas, I know our baking blog is practically extinct, but I'm bringing it back and posting the recipe here.
You might not have realized it, but tonight's a big night for kids, practically like Christmas Eve. Well, that's probably a stretch. You see, tomorrow, unless a kid's got a real Scrooge for a teacher, is the Valentine's card exchange at school. You can bet every one of my twenty kiddos tonight is admiring their card choice, be it some Hannah Montana or Star Wars, or whatever, and filling out one for every friend (we're ALL friends in room 9!).
Every year they're so funny to watch as they deliver and then excitedly open up all of the cards they received. You know how it is: there's no sweet, heart-felt message. In fact, there's nothing personal besides a name, but they LOVE it. And, you know what? When I was a kid I did too. In fact, that's one of the reasons I love my job. I get to experience some of the things I loved as a kid all over again and have almost as much fun! Can't wait for tomorrow!

Oh Miss Martha...you've outdone yourself! Those are beautiful...and I wish I was getting a delivery of those at my house! Too pretty to eat! Matthew filled out all his Valentine cards tonight. Luckily I get to volunteer in his class tomorrow (wishing you were his teacher)and get in on all the action!! Can't wait.

Dianna, I wish we lived closer so I could try one of these delicious looking cookies! They really are adorable!
I have fond memories of Valentine's Day as a child...when I was in Kindergarten my mom helped me make homemade cards and the day I delivered them I was one card short and it happened to be my Kindergarten crush Chad Bloom! So, the next day I got to make him a special card and hand it to him directly...little did he know it really was made with love!

Yeah - thank you for my cookie delivery! Sorry I wasn't home to get them and hug you, and of course wish you a happy birthday tomorrow!! Have a great day and let's plan something soon! I miss you!
ps - they actually saved me a cookie too!

How in the world do you bake this much and stay so small? Just looking at all your delicious baked goods causes me to gain a couple of pounds. And yes, I think you're right that baking could work out nicely as a second career (I hope it's not needed), because everything you make is beautiful.
