valentine’s gathering

February 11th | older posts

My college girls are coming over for a valentine exchange this evening after the boys are tucked into bed.

I used construction paper hearts, double-sided tape and fishing line to decorate the table. simple and sweet. Thanks for the inspiration, Lindsey!

Matty helped me ‘cook’ pretzels drizzled with white choclate and sprinkles. (just microwave the white chocolate in a freezer bag, snip the corner and drizzle over pretzels. They take about 2-3 hours to re-harden. Thanks for the recipe Ashlynn! And we’ll watch ‘Be my Valentine, Charlie Brown’. You might wonder if we are going to decorate brown paper bags to put our valentines in…we just might!

    How nice! I live in Norway, and Valentine’s is not so common here, although the book shops and some other stores are filled with hearts and cards and chocholate. This year I think we’re going to make something of it (and without the stores help..!).

    I did not know that you guys were in ministry. My husband is a minister and I have had the joy of high school and college girls.

    I hope that you had fun.
