we {heart} cookies- {embrace} the camera

That's right it's Thursday again and you know what that means!!  {Embrace} the camera Thursday!  Yesterday Lincoln and I had a blast (and made a huge mess) making some heart cookies for Valentine's Day.  They are so yummy that I just don't think they are going to last until Valentine's Day so I'll just have to make some more!

Lincoln getting ready!



Adding his own special touch to the mixture...shhh don't tell daddy! haha just kiddin' I didn't let him add anything :)


playing with the cookie cutters



push that dough down, good n' flat!


really getting into it!



say,"cheese!"


so I had just got done workin' out, yuck.

Again, the famous "deer in the headlights look."  He has this look every week!  Maybe one of these weeks we'll get a smile!


I've been reading all these blogs that have so many fun ideas to do for V-Day and I thought this idea sounded cute and fun!  I bought these mailboxes in the dollar section at Target, one for each of us.  Lincoln has the white, Tyler has red and mine is pink.  We write each other a "valentine" each day.  It's so fun!  Lincoln obviously has no idea what's going on but all the notes that Tyler and I write to him I'll put in his baby book for him to read when he's a little older.  This is totally filling my love tank though! :)


Head on over HERE to embrace the camera with us!

  8. I had to visit a blog with cookies in it. We love us some cupcakes. Ps the homemade laundry detergent really does work and you can use any soap you like you can even add the softner right in.

  10. yes i do make my own laundry detergent. we have 3 large loads a day and it saves me ALOT of money. one bach lasts me about 4 to 5 months. The only thing I miss about regular detergent is the wonderful smell so I put the gain softner right in the batch. It's not without its problems but over all i love it. just remember to pretreat those stains. gosh i feel so Marth Stewart right now.O yes and i think it helps to add realy hot water on the last step. my recipe is the one from the duggars web site.
