Hearts & Cookies

One of my family’s favorite Valentine’s traditions is frosting sugar cookies. I knew I wanted to keep the tradition going in my future family! So, I got my grandma’s amazing sugar cookie and frosting recipe (that’s right, 100% made from scratch) and we went to business. 

They’re my FAVORITE cookies.
 Maybe because they remind me of home and are full of memories! 
I think they’re pretty darn delicious too. 
We had too much fun decorating! Scott surprised me with his awesome decorating skills.

Isn’t he the cutest? I walked away for two seconds and came back to my name written in hearts. Love him. 

Scott decorates em’ and I eat em’ 

We each made one for each other. Again, impressed by Scott’s skill. Still finding out so many awesome things about my man.

What are your Valentine’s Traditions??

    I used to make heart shaped, decorated sugar cookies to take to my kids classes in school. I would have to make hundreds, but I loved the looks on their faces when I would come to the classroom door,
