I’m so fortunate to have friends with kids around Carter and Mason’s age. It makes for great entertainment for both the kids and the moms when throwing little parties so we try to have as many get togethers as we can. It also gives me a great excuse to use the plethora of crafting ideas that I come across on Pinterest.
We had a little Valentine’s Day party earlier this week. Once upon a time I would have tried to make all the delicious treats myself, but now with a rambunctious toddler and an infant that is just about on the move, it doesn’t leave me much time to break out my dusty Kitchen Aid mixer. All the sweet treats were store bought. I did however make the chocolate dipped strawberries. Only because it’s super simple to do and I had a little helper who was eager to sprinkle on the Valentine’s jimmies for me. I also made all of the decorations: Pinwheel backdrop, banners, cupcake toppers, milk box favours and party hats. I don’t have to time bake during the day, but I do usually get 1-2 hours to myself an evening, after the boys are tucked away in bed and before it’s time to veg out on the couch with Mr. Smith.
