I've had fun this weekend, too, with my little grandsons. Katie and Henry made cut-out Valentine hearts to decorate the doors and windows. Henry came upstairs and "helped" me decorate a cake. I sliced off the tops of my two layers and they became Henry's very own decorated cake.
I'm cherishing these waning hours of my weekend, trying to mentally avoid late-weekend letdown and the fact that I have to rise (and maybe shine) at 5:55 a.m. in order to be in the gym by 7:00. I have to deliberatly force myself to NOT think of the piles of work and challenges I'm facing once I arrive in the office, and instead focus on this day and the hours I still have to enjoy being at home.
In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm linking you here to last year's post about Heart-Shaped Sugar Cookies. They were incredible. I sent a box to Meghan last year, all the way to Long Beach, CA, and she never received them. Some lucky, greedy interloper enjoyed them instead. But the good wishes that went along with them made their way there, and will again this year.
Here are a few photos of this weekend:
