Why "pick-me-ups"? As a Mom, I find that I need a word of encouragement, a new way of looking at a problem, or a new idea to try every once in a while. I'm glad to share with you 3 of the websites or blog posts that have helped me in some way---I hope it will be a blessing for you, too!
Keep an eye out for these each Monday :-)
Let's get ready for Valentine's Day!
2. Here are a few more Valentine's Day crafts from DTLK-Kids. I printed off some angry bird and hearts and flowers ones for the family to color during our family home evening.
3. These treats from Spoonful for the holiday look so yummy. I've made the red jello hearts before and the kids really liked it (it was easy!).
This year, I noticed at a local discount grocery they had some good prices on a variety of bulk sweets. (Actually, while shopping, my boys ran over to the aisle and then flagged me down! haha) My oldest boys helped pick out a few different chocolates, gummies and gumdrops in pink and red colors when we went shopping. They are going to help me put them in homemade decorated "mailboxes" (empty tissue boxes) on February 14th for a fun surprise for the rest of the family!
What are some of the fun ways you like to enjoy this holiday?
