Valentine's Celebrations

A few images from today. The boys made these gorgeous cranberry, oat and white chocolate chip cookies - the recipe is meant to be for Christmas, but the colours are perfect for Valentine's Day. We bundled them up in small parcels for some special people who show the boys a lot of love, and give them their time generously. My husband treated us all to some splendid pancakes for breakfast, and I made him the Hurricane Hat. I didn't manage to get a picture of him wearing it (yet!) but it was my first foray into knitting with double pointed needles. I was really pleased with the whole process and end result. I did loose the needles a few times, but got there in the end! He painted me a beautiful little picture, which I shall photograph in part 2. The paper decorations were very simple, just some origami paper paper glued together, cut into hearts and sewn in strands to hang down. I love how they twist around in the warmth of the kitchen. It's going to be a festive week. We have a birthday coming up soon..shhh...lots of secrets....
Much love to you!
