Valentine's Day Activities

Mairead had a very busy Valentine's Day weekend. Of course, one of the best parts of Valentine's Day is eating treats, and Mairead thorougly enjoyed the cupcakes we made today. We would have made them yesterday, but Grampy and Brian were nice enough to come down and install a new kitchen faucet for us since our old one broke. It was not really a good day to be baking since the kitchen was a 'work zone.' So, once things were back to normal today, we were ready to bake.

Of course, when baking, you HAVE to lick the spoon.

She was very helpful in mixing up her very own bowl of batter... and then eating some of it.

We gave Mairead a set of flashcards to try out and she loves them. She doesn't really care to have Dave or I involved in playing with them, though. She likes to spread them all out on the floor and look at all of the pictures. She takes it very seriously and lays them out (apparently) in some sort of order.

But I would say that the flashcards were not as big a hit as the cupcakes!

The slideshow to the right includes all of our Valentine's Day related pictures. Hope you all had a great weekend- Love to you all!

It looks like Mairead did a really nice job with the cupcakes.
