Happiness is Friday.  After a short but long week, we are so happy to celebrate Friday with pizza and movie night tonight.

Happiness is knowing that my sister is at school with my boys every day.  I am not sure what I would do without her.

Happiness is spending a day in the kitchen baking and cooking.

Happiness is Instagram.  I love the convenience of taking pictures on my phone and sharing them with family.

Happiness is these Valentine Everything Cookies.  I decided to start making cookies each Thursday for an after-school snack, as a little celebration that we just have one more day until the weekend.  I love how a red M&M changed these cookies from Halloween cookies into Valentine cookies.    It is all about the fun, simple, celebratory things in life.
