I wanted to do something a little different for Valentine’s Day this year. I like making holidays memorable for the kids (my mom would stay up all night before holidays decorating the house and making it so exciting to wake up to). While I’m not the type to do that, I am always looking for creative ways to celebrate while tying it to the Bible in some way. Then I came across this post over at Mommyhood. What a great idea…a scavenger hunt! I used her idea but I tweaked it quite a bit. Jeff didn’t know what I had planned…only that it was something for the family to do. I asked Jeff to take the kids on a run to the store so I could get things set up. When they came home, the first thing they saw when they came in the door was this:

We finished off with some strawberry/white chocolate candies I made earlier in the day. I just diced up some strawberries, placed them in a candy mold…
…melted white chocolate and poured it in the mold…
…put it in the fridge and voila:
I served it up with a tasty hot strawberry drink that I found over at Two Peas and Their Pod.
I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day!
