Happy Valentines Day 2009

Happy Valentines Day Everyone - this was our craft today, a giant envalope to hold all of our goodies!
Our activity today was making cookies. Cade & Alahna were pretty serious about making these Valentine's cookies just right. They were both super helpful!

Alahna & Cade enjoying their just desserts.
I asked who wanted to help with the cookies - these three were a little reluctant, but when I said they could have a taste - they suddenly were more motivated.

Seth, Jack & Austin really just wanted to lick the spoon when they were done.

Listen to how easy & yummy these cookies are

Cake Mix Cookies
1 box (any flavor - we used Vanilla) cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla (but we used almost 1 tablespoon for these)
2 Tbs. oil
1/2 bag of whatever (chocolate chips, m&m's etc)

We used less then a half a bag & added 6 drops of red food coloring. Baked at 350' for 10 minutes & they were so good & easy!
Austin, Jack, Seth, Cade, James, Alahna - show off their cute folders.
Our letter this week is "V" and the shape of the week is the "heart" - how appropriate for such a fun holiday.
my favorite part of today was getting a big hug from each of my monkeys. Thank you all for your participation and making this such a fun holiday!
