Remember, if printing and sticking gum on to these Valentine's is still too much work for you right now...buy Valentine's. Especially the ones with sugar attached :).

Our "into Orbit" . . .
These little Valentine's Day rice krispie treats are a simple, fun way to spend a cold Saturday afternoon with the kids. If you are in Minnesota cold means... -30 windchill.

(just nod your head :)) Because our housing is much smaller than in years . . .

Their faces are shining, their eyes are bright, they even seem to have an extra bounce to their already bouncy steps. They get Christmas. They understand that this time of year the world around them seems to get a bit . . .
These Santa Hat Brownies have a great story attached to them, which I just have to share with you. Before I do, though, I want to make sure you know they are legitimately good brownies. They are made from a box mix, but they are a great activity to share with your kids (or someone else's) leading up to Christmas. This is one of those activities that you just go buy the . . .
