Valentine House

If you’re a follower of Marshmallow Mondays, then you know that every year Santa brings Rydan a gingerbread house for Christmas.  This year, we decided to be a little more creative with our house.  Rather than make our house sometime in January like we usually do, we saved it for February and made a Valentine’s Day House.  We bought some Valentine’s Day candies, including red, white and pink peanut M&M’s, heart-shaped Junior Mints, pink and red Dots, and red, white and pink sprinkled non-pareils.  As always, Rydan enjoyed decorating the house while sneaking candies into his mouth at the same time.
