Happy Heart Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends!!!!
I've never been much of a Valentine's Day fan but that doesn't mean I don't get into the Heart Day spirit.  I'm all about spreading the love today!  I hope everyone takes time out of their busy day to tell the special people in their lives that you love them time!!!
Here's one of my 3 Valentine loves

Em's dr's appointment took ALOT longer than I imagined so I didn't make it back to Noah's school for his Valentine's Day party :(   I hope all the kids like the heart shaped crayons I made.  They were fairly easy to make and would have been so much easier if I had a ton of broken crayons without the wrappers laying around the house.  Oh well. Here's how to make them:

Unwrap the crayons and break them into little pieces.  Noah helped me break all the crayons.  I still have wax under my nails from trying to rip the wrappers off.  {Note to readers....try to pay someone to do this. Not only will it save your nails, you won't look crazy with colored junk under your nails}
Next, put some broken pieces into silicone baking molds.  I forgot to take a pic of this step.
Bake them for 10-15 minutes at 275 degrees. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely.  If you don't, your hearts will break (hahaha) when you try to remove it from the mold.
Remove them from the mold and voila!  I packaged them in treat bags and put each Valentine that Noah wrote out in the bag.  Nice, simple, and cheap Valentine's gift for the kiddos!

 Now it's off to a Valentine's fro yo date!!!  Can't wait!
Enjoy your love filled day!!!
