valentines from preschool & 16 week baby bump

these are the treats greyson gave the friends in his class today at school along with valentine day cards. super easy and yummy! here's the recipe:

Pretzel Sweet Treats

1 bag tiny pretzel twists

1 bag of hershey kisses, hugs or ROLOS

M&M's candies

1. Heat the oven to 170ยบ. Spread pretzels twists in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss, Hershey's Hug or Rolo.

2. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes (the white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates feels soft when touched with a wooden spoon. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M's candy into the center of each Kiss.

3. Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10 minutes. Place handfuls of the candies in clear plastic bags and tie on colorful ribbons

Valentine cards, loot bags & treats from preschool. he told me all about the valentine party when i picked him up, he said the pink cupcakes were his favorite part!

he just couldn't wait to open those sweet cards (and the candy).

so here i am, 16 weeks pregnant today! didn't greyson do a great job taking this picture? he loves my camera and has gotten SO good with it, despite how heavy that lens is!

being silly together

realizing the days of just “us” together are going to come to an end. trusting and believing that a sibling will be one of the greatest gifts that we could ever give him. it still saddens me when i think of how easy and carefree our days are now, and the changes to come. Things are about to be shaken up a bit around here this summer. especially our mornings of sleeping in. it will all be worth it, remind me in july! :)

7 more days until we hopefully find out the gender of this little blessing. I can’t wait!!

Hey thanks for your message and congrats to you too! How exciting. I'll bookmark your blog so I can follow you in your journey. We scheduled our 20 week ultra sound for March 9th but we're keeping the gender a surprise so we won't be finding out :~) It will be fun to see the baby on scren again though. Can't wait to hear about your appointment! You look great by the way ;~)
