Sports and Valentine’s Cookies.

A quick post today.

V turned 8 a couple weekends ago. His superhero obsession is gradually giving way to an interest in sports, which is what he requested his birthday theme be. Naturally, that amounted to the simple but versatile ball cookies to be baked for distribution at school.

Valentine’s Day isn’t a holiday that’s big in our family. The kids do, however, are expected to write up cards for every other kid in their class and exchange small gifts. Cookies to the rescue again.

Now the bummer: we’re snowed in for V Day! No school, no exchange, no party. The sparkle will have to wait until next week. Oh, well.
