A "Room Mom’s" Valentine’s Day!

Me and my little Princess at her Preschool Valentine’s Party! 

I absolutely LOVE being a room mom for my children. The festivities, excitement, decorations, giggles, games and treats are all a part of special days I get celebrate with my youngsters. I soak up the time I can be with them at their schools…I love getting to know their teachers, their friends, and the way their little personalities shift when they are in a different enviornment. I especially delight in my children’s faces as they light up when they see “Mom” walk through their classroom door. Thank you God for this blessing…..

My role tomorrow is supplying the “cupcake station”…and here is what I have ready! 

 24 (undecorated) cupcakes ready to go for tomorrow’s big Valentine’s Day Party!  If I had all the money in the world, I would buy every mother one of these carriers! I got my Cupcake Carrier from Crate and Barrel. Love it! 

Individual cups filled with frosting for the children to frost their own cupcakes
And a buffet of toppings! I simply placed Valentine’s M&Ms, heart sprinkles, red sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, and sweethearts in a muffin tin.
We had some extra, so I let my children have fun decorating some tonight..
They asked if they could give them to their friends next door…OF COURSE!!!! 
My Children with serving hearts…LOVE in action.

Can’t wait for tomorrow!!!

Valentine’s Day with Jesus
Jesus does not send perfumeTo linger in the airInstead He sends salvation, sweetTo show how much He cares. He doesn’t bring me candy heartsIn boxes of delightInstead He always lets me knowI’m precious in His sight. He doesn’t pass out pretty cardsTrimmed in shades of redInstead He gave His life for meHis precious blood was shed. He doesn’t hand out fancy giftsLike we would send to motherInstead He sends a message clearTo always love each other. He doesn’t give me teddy bearsThat whimper, “Please be mine”Instead He gave His heart to meI wear it all the time. He doesn’t give me roses, pinkFor all the world to seeInstead He gave eternal lifeThat’s good enough for me. Author/Written By:Marilyn Ferguson

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! 
Love to you,

    Gina…thank you 🙂 God gets ALL the glory, lol…without Him, there is no telling what kind of mom I would be! (scary hu?!)

  3. What a cute idea for letting kids decorate! And I so want one of those cupcake holders. I've been eying one of Martha Stewart's for awhile now, lol!

  4. Missy O'Brien says:

    This looks like SO much fun! My youngest goes to a public school and we can not make home made stuff?? Boo Hoo!!! So I dont get to do this kind of stuff except for my older son because he does attend a private school and they let us make home made stuff. This is a great idea for a fun activity for my kids!! Thanks for sharing!!! Hugs

  6. Courtney (Women Living Well) says:

    OH Janelle – I LOVE the posts where you show your family putting love in action – so inspiring! Man I need a neighbor like you – better yet – I need to be a neighbor LIKE you! Really cute idea with the topping buffet – I've never seen that before – GREAT idea!
    Love you,

  7. Saved by Grace says:

    Love all your ideas, your are encouraging and inspiring. I love it, we homeschool-but is a great idea to use to make cupcakes for neighbors, family and friends. Thank you!


  8. Darlene Schacht says:

    I love the mom you are. Your children rise and call you blessed!

  9. Dear Sweet Home says:

    I love that! I also consider it such a blessing to be able to volunteer at my kids school. The look on their face when mama walks in is priceless. Our daughter is in high school so, I don't go to her school often but, I get lots of opportunities at Church and I take them when I can! Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. This is so creative! Love it!!
