Valentine’s Day is one of my grandchildren’s favorite holidays. The excitement rates right up there with Christmas. I wanted to share some Valentine’s Day tips and sweet treats that I use to make it special for them.
Valentine’s Day is usually celebrated with candy, flowers, cards, or a special dinner date. It is so much fun to find a new way to show that special person how much you love them. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do this.
Grandpa Bob and I spent Valentine’s weekend snuggled in our cozy home, making lots of good food, watching romantic movies, and just having fun.
We were planning on going to our favorite lake resort, Stonewall Lake Resort. They have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend package and we have done this in previous years.

I love Valentine’s Day and all of the sweet, mushy things that go with it. I remember how special it was to do the Valentines that we gave to each other in grade school. I spent hours picking out the perfect one from the box for each classmate. I know that my little grandchildren still do the same thing now. It is just funny to me to read some of the phrases on the conversation hearts!
No matter how old my grandchildren get, I will always love to make Valentine’s Day treats for them.
I like to bake a variety of cookies and make them trays. I mail them to the little ones that live in other states. It is so special when I get a picture from their mommy’s with the open box and they have a cookie in each hand.
They love the Decorated Sugar Cookies I make.
I have been using this recipe for about 40 years and I am always pleased with it. HERE is the recipe.
There are so many different kinds of love we experience in our life. Being a grandparent has given us the opportunity to have been through all of these.
We start with the love of our parents, our siblings, grandparents and other extended family members.
Later in life we have our spouses or significant other, our children and then the wonderful, extreme love of our grandchildren. No two kinds of love are alike but they are each so overwhelming and unforgettable.
This is a grandparent blog and to me the heart of it is the love of the grandparents for each other. Continue reading A GRANDPARENT’S LOVE….VALENTINE’S DAY

I mail a box to my grandsons in Colorado and North Carolina. I add some Valentine window clings and it is a fun, inexpensive treat from grandma and grandpa. The other children live nearby.
