Welp. Happy Valentines Day, or Galentine’s Day – Depending on your situation!
Do you do the Valentines Day thing? My hubby and I dont really do much, never really have, but I still like it – despite its commercial nature.
I kinda like the day after better though when all the treats go on sale LOL!
This year Im solo. Adam is in Lexington this year, so its just the 3 boys and I. They made me some cute cards (which was so nice – I dont get much of that usually, being a homeschool family).
The highlight of their day, and mine however was our chocolate cupcake baking spree.
There was a lot of working out who was doing what, and they did great with the sharing for the most part. I even backed off to let them crack the eggs, which the 3rd egg dropped right into Keith’s lap, and upon further inspection, there were quite a few shells in the eggs that did make it into the bowl that we had to start over with eggs. Luckily I had the foresight to give them a bowl to crack them into – instead of right into the mixer.
Here’s there fun:
The eggs started out ok – but you can see below where Keith wore it lol
Day of the dead cupcake liners, because, well – its how we roll.
Despite many attempts to discourage them from eating raw cake batter….
Baby P wanted to help fill the cupcake liners, but by then my OCD had kicked in and I had to take over. I tried.
Then I started to win him back, with the promise of cupcakes 🙂
It worked 🙂
I have zero evidence of these cupcakes turning out, but I assure you they did – and you can bet that they had sprinkles 🙂
I think we’ll need to make another batch for our Family Day Party this weekend too.
Happy Valentines Day friends!
