Happy Valentine's Day and A Bit of Family Fun

Celebrating CNY at P.F. Chang...
Well. the kids said it looked more like a mouse. I guess I should have made the ears a bit bigger by using constuction paper like my mom used to. Here it is anyway...The Bunny Cake! My mom used to make this for us at Easter, but with white coconut. To make simply take a round cake and half it. After icing, coat with coconut and use colored icing and licorace sticks to decorate. I had marshmellows on hand, so I used them for ears.
A comfy spot at the Home and Garden Show...
The award-winning train garden...

Tori at the Asian inspired garden...

Getting ready for tomorrow...JJ's Valentines are inspired by Mad Libs...An after season find last year!

Tori had to have Tinker Bell...Found those on clearance, too. I had a feeling that Tink would be the pick for this year.
And she signed her name to all eleven for her preschool friends!

We had a fun Saturday and today has been spent getting ready for tomorrow. Not only is it Valentine's Day, but I am leaving for the Beta Convention, too. Yep, it was really bad timing this year, but this was the only time that the organization could schedule it.

So I will be taken away from my blog and blog friends for a few days...I hope that your Valentine's Day is full of lots of sweetness and tender moments!

Safe travels to your Beta Convention. Your Rabbit cake is simply adorable. How special. Wonderful pictures (as always). I'll send you an email with the Asian graphic that I used on Josie's valentine box (in case you need it for your own crafty pursuits).

HUGS!
