As you’ve probably figured out by the bazillion pictures of us together Paula and I live right down the road from one another. It’s awesome, especially since the entire rest of our family lives far far away.
We have 3 brothers who all live in Oregon where we grew up with their families. We had SO much fun this past Christmas season all being together. I truly enjoyed snuggling all my sweet nieces and nephews I don’t get to see nearly often enough. I know the older ones know who we are pretty well, but the younger ones, I want them to know who we are too and what better way then to bring you to mind then sending gifts? 🙂 (I’ve always been all about bribery).
When we got home from Christmas the wheels in my head started turning and I decided I wanted to send something to them throughout the year and holidays are a fun time to do just that.
So this is what I came up with for Valentine’s day. I am hopeful that instead of just sending cookies they can possibly have a bit of fun as a family making their own.
In the box I included a bag of sugar cookie mix, a tub of frosting (that can be colored if they choose to do that), a bunch of fun Valentine sprinkles, and some heart cookie cutters.
I found some boxes just the right size and packaged them all up.
I added a Valentine to the box, taped it up, and set them on their way.
Here’s to hoping they’ll feel our love and have fun making (and eating) the cookies as a family.
What are some of the things you do to stay close to family far away (aside from emails/phone calls). I sure love my family, in a perfect world we’d all live on the same street!
