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!
