Sweets for the Sweet

Happy Valentine's Day

I found this cute little heart shaped dish while out thrifting the other day.  I love the little heart border.
and I love the dark chocolates that it holds:-)

We had the family over for pizza after church on Sunday to celebrate Valentines' Day.  Since we just returned from WDW we are a little Mickey crazy so I thought this trio of boxes from Target was cute for a simple centerpiece.

Grandchildren's places.

The grandchildren have a heart on their plate because we always read this book at Valentine time and always have a chocolate heart in our hand.  Lily looks and looks for a place to hide her chocolate and at the end unwraps it and pops it in her mouth.  We wait to unwrap ours till that part in the story.  The 3 older kids remember doing this every year and it was fun to watch Jackson this year.  He is only 3 so he probably wasn't allowed to pop a whole chocolate in his mouth last year ~ but he loved it this year.

You know, that's just a little silly thing to do, but I am convinced that little moments like these become memories, and I hope that when my grands are big, those little red hearts will hold a sweet memory.

Sweet treats.

{we do use silverware and glasses, this was obviously a table in progress:-) }

I hope your day is full of love and sweet treats!

Cute, cute, cute! You always think of everything! :) I just love that!

Steve was flying this year on Valentine's, but that's ok. We're going to go out and celebrate when he gets back.

Hope you have a real nice weekend, Sue!

What a *sweet* tradition. I love that you read with your grandchildren. Those times spent together reading are priceless, and helps mold who they will become. They are just as lucky to have you as you are to have them.
