My Little Valentine

My sweet little Eli came for a visit today, and we made some pretty and yummy Valentine's Day cookies together.


I made the sugar cookie dough before he came, so that it could chill and be ready to roll out after he arrived. He loved helping me cut them out, and we even made a few large heart-shaped cookie pops...


As you can see, Eli's favorite part was decorating the cookies (and eating them, of course!).



I didn't get any other pictures taken, I am sorry to say, but the cookies all turned out fine, and Eli took his home along with a few for big brother Jack, who was in school, no doubt having a wonderful Valentine's Day party in his second grade class. Eli and I also got in a quick trip over to Maya's house, where she and her mommy, Sara, served us beautiful Valentine's Day cupcakes; sorry, no pictures of those, either.

Eli got to have lunch here at home with Grandpa, because Erin and John were having a Valentine's Day lunch out, and now he is home with his family and I am planning on making a nice dinner for Lauren and I to elebrate the day. It has been one of those special days of touching base with family, and I enjoyed my morning with Eli.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Aww, he is cute. He reminds me of my boys. I bet he will always remember you for your cookies. =) I think baking for grandchildren is one of the best things ever - for both grandchildren & grandparents. =)
