Valentine's Day Preparations, and Hello Kitty to the Rescue


We made some really great Valentine's this year.
We started as we usually do with these things...

We melted and mixed...

We shaped and dipped...

We sprinkled...

We celebrated...

We taste-tested.

The test was a success... we ate them all up, well we may have given away four.

In other news... Hello Kitty to the rescue.

I was able to use Miss H's machine, to put the aforementioned horrendous buttonhole issue to rest. Of course this was after two more hours trying with the Elna. (Which I have inappropriately been calling the HELL-na behind it's back because it has created the illusion of simplicity with the reality of time-sucking complexity.) The ironic part of the whole situation is after spending countless hours mastering the button holes so they would be absolutely perfect (which they aren't but they are as close as Hello Kitty could muster), I had Miss H try the skirt on, and the itty bitty little thing put it on without UNBUTTONING IT!!! Hmm if only I had realized that days ago. Although, honestly I thought it nearly impossible, as I had cut it out to have a 3T size waist... she slid it right over her teeny buns without even blinking.

I'm excited to see the girls Kit included outfitted up tomorrow. I am also excited to see what The Mr. spent all morning working on with the kids in the basement... Also.. did I mention we are going square dancing tomorrow.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
