As any mom knows it’s very rare to get all your kids to pose together for a photo, let alone color coordinate! So I was very excited that this photo came together…

Here’s our McDermott Love Fest Strawberry Cake with Fondant icing. Stella and Liam helped me bake it! This was my first time using rolled fondant and I’m now a #FondantFan. So easy and way less mess!

Stella made this V-day craft at school. All it took was some wood, paint, nails, and yarn. Super cute craft!

And here’s my girl sampling one of the rice crispie treats before it had been decorated…

The kids had the best time baking (and sampling) the desserts, and it was so much fun to spend this love-filled holiday together as a family.

How did you spend Valentine’s Day?

Love,
