preparations

I haven't done much to prepare for Valentine's day yet, but we did at least have these heart shaped muffins with dinner the other night. So cheery, aren't they? I love a novelty muffin tin (acorn muffins here). With acorns for fall and hearts for winter, I'm wondering what other shapes there might be for spring and summer?
This afternoon after work I started to gather some of the supplies for making Valentines for the boys to give their classmates. Not sure how this will work out. At 3 and 5 they don't really have the attention span to see such a project through to completion. School Valentine parties are on Friday here, but I won't be home to see the boys off with their little sacks of cards. I'm off to Hollywood tomorrow for the CSNO convention with some of the other school nurses from our district. I will miss my family but I really love continuing education so am looking forward to it (and to a full nights sleep x 3!). They'll drive down to meet me on Sunday and drive me home. And then, hooray!, we'll have our traditional trail of hearts. What are your Valentine plans this year?

Wow, I love these heart muffins. I'll have to be on the lookout for those pans.
Have a great trip! How exciting to have a little getaway, even if it's work related.

No bog plans for us. We threw a dinner party last weekend with a V-day theme, but other than that I am sure we will enjoy pink and red hearts and flowers all on Sunday as a family. I love the muffins too btw

Valentine's Day is our family's Heart Day celebration where our kids donate the "give" part of their allowance that they've been saving all year. Hoping to blog about it early next week.
Love those muffins, yum!!!
