I have several million (okay, little exaggeration) candy canes left over from Christmas. Instead of throwing them out, I just keep moving them from room to room. They finally made their way upstairs into the kitchen and I've been moving them again - from the desk to the table to the counter to the candy box on top of the fridge. Which is just dumb, BECAUSE NO ONE IS GOING TO EAT THEM. Evie declares they are " Too scipy," or "spicy" in English. Me, I'd rather have chocolate.
So when I saw this on Make and Takes, it was the perfect solution to my candy cane problem. Cute, huh? Now I have Valentine decorations to hang in the front door and around Evie's room. All it took was ribbon, the oven, and my red and white striped friends.
Good thing I hung onto those candy canes. I knew they would come in handy!
I have been married for more than 11 years to my fantastic husband, Chris, and we have two beautiful and energetic children. Evie is 5, and full of spunk and sparkle. Ethan is 2, and has taught me about trains and construction vehicles and Buzz Lightyear - and about sweet boy cuddles.
I strive to be gentle and kind - a reflection of the love Christ has shown to us. I don't always live it perfectly, but I am working towards a life of gratitude, joy, and love!
