Here are a few of the other cards Ella is sharing with family and friends.
This year Ella is also sharing her new favorite pink inspired snack mix complete with cheerios, yogurt drops, mini marshmallows and iced animal crackers. Considering Ella and her friends don't really have teeth yet we had to keep it pretty simple. She managed to gum her way through a animal cracker but it was not a pretty sight. Hopefully her friends' moms don't hate me after getting this. I had to include them…they complete the mix.
We also spent a good portion of the afternoon baking for our larger family and friends.
M&M cookies and chocolate covered Oreos were on the menu this year.
I didn't take any photos of the final, completed packages - just didn't have it in me anymore between baking and painting the basement - but they were wrapped similar to the snack mix in the heart bags from the Target dollar section. Unfortunately the cute heart on the front gets lost when tying the bags but they were only a $1. Can't complain.
Now to put together Ella's little Valentine's package. It will contain lots and lots of stickers (a new obsession), a Curious George book (her favorite), pink glow sticks for the bath, some snacks and other fun pink and red crafty items.
Hope you all have a fun, festive Valentine's Day!
And because I love reminiscing, here are last years cards.
What a difference a year makes!
And to think, next year there will be a new face in these photos….
