Marshmallow Mondays

I’ve had a lot of fun the past few days preparing for Valentine’s Day with Rydan and Lily.  We spent an evening last week making our own valentines out of a $5 kit I had bought from Target.  As always, Rydan’s creativity went wild and Lily simply enjoyed playing with all of the sparkly hearts and letters.

I especially liked the valentine that Rydan made for Lily…

Thanks to Pap Wiest, Valentine’s Day arrived a few days early when a big package arrived at our door step.  Inside were tons of goodies, but what made the package extra special was all of the “marshmallow-inspired treats,” like the bag of heart-shaped marshmallows, chocolate-covered marshmallow hearts, and pink marshmallow rice crispies.  Also included were two stuffed bears, two books and our favorite… two jars of Reeses’s Peanut Butter, straight from Hershey!  WE LOVE YOU, PAP!

After receiving such a big treat box, Rydan asked me if he has school on Valentine’s Day.  What a kid.  Although, I totally understood his line of thinking.  Holiday gifts usually mean days off of school.  I figured it was a good time to get his Ninjago Valentines out, so after he remembered the annual valentine exchange in his classroom, he got a bit more excited.

And as with any holiday, I can’t resist the temptation to be festive in the kitchen.  This Valentine’s Day, I made a V-Day Chex Mix, which turned out to be a big hit.

To All Of Our Readers:

We love and appreciate you for visiting Marshmallow Mondays every week!  Happy Valentine’s Day!
