Valentines Day Prep

Yesterday we kept busy doing prep work for Valentines Day (today).  That and some laundry thrown in.  We made our sugar cookie dough Sunday and put it in the fridge.  I always like to let it refrigerate over night because in my experience the cookies always bake better.  Yesterday before lunch we got busy rolling, cutting, and baking the cookies so they would have plenty of time to cool.

Once they were all baked we set them aside and had lunch.  Then it was time to get busy on those Valentines!!!

I cut out all of the paper before hand and then gave her the glue, the paper, and the decorations to make her creations.
 That's not Ava's Dr. Pepper in case anyone is wondering.  She is not allowed to have soda.
 Little hands at work

 Ready for the paint
 Can you tell she liked having her hands painted.
 They turned out so good...........love them!!!

After dinner I got the royal icing whipped up and dyed so we could get down to decorating business.

Ava put some cookies in baggies and gave them with her Valentines :)

I'll post a separate post later for the red velvet cupcakes.  We still haven't actually frosted them and I have to run and get my steaks on the grill.  Hope everyone else is having as good of a Valentines Day as we are.
