A Triple Holiday means 3x the Fun!

Today was a trifecta of holidays! 
1. Valentine's Day
2. Arizona's 100th Birthday
3. A Snow Day!

Three holidays means three times the fun!

We played in the snow this morning.

Then we drove to the shop to pick up Dad for a Valentine's lunch with the 4 loves of his life, and ate at Mickey D's. 

After lunch, we dropped our date off and drove home in heavy snow with 4 Wheel drive.

When we walked in the front door, we peeled our winter boots off, stoked up the fire, and warmed the kitchen up by baking some sugar cookies to deliver to our neighbors and favorite older folks.

I made the dough and frosting, and let the kids do all the rest!

If the size of the mess is any indication of the amount of fun they had, then I'd say they had an absolute blast decorating cookies!

Hopefully the recipients of our baked goods appreciated the "uniqueness" of each cookie they received. 

Would you like a little bit of cookie with your frosting? Ha Ha! This one had to be culled from the gift selection. It may put someone into sugar shock.

Here are the Royal Tasters making sure that the cookies passed inspection before they made their deliveries.

They also took snow shovels with them on their cookie deliveries to clear walkways as acts of neighborly "love" for Valentine's Day.

After the deliveries were made, it was time to burn off all of that sugar with some more fun in the snow.

Happy Valentine's Day!
