Balemtimes Day

Trip has thoroughly amused us this month with his continued discussion of "Balemtimes." If anything is red or pink or a heart, then it must be for "Balemtimes." If he sees a red car, "Ooh Mommy, that car is red for "Balemtimes!" We filled our many snow days by doing a few Valentines activities. The kids cut and pasted items that they love from some old magazines.
We made Chocolate-Glazed Shortbread Hearts
and had heart shaped pancakes (by the way, with Batter Blaster that I found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store by the yogurt. Super cool product. Makes it really easy to just make 2 pancakes at a time.) On V Day, the "Valentines Fairy" came and brought the kids some candy, balloons, and pajamas. Trip's new Superman PJs, complete with cape, have been worn almost every night since the 14th. He tells me to hurry and wash them so he can wear them again. I'll take a pic of those soon and post.
