    Great ideas. Last year we made a spiritual cookie bouquet for the grandparents from my girls, it turned out cute and delicious I think we will do it again this year.

  2. Your blog is a great resource! I especially love the John 3:16 valentine. My son's scout pack is making Valentine cards for the vets at our local VA Hospital. I think we'll make a bunch of the John 3:16's one too!

    I see your Catholic Icing logo everywhere and had to check you out. I'm new to the blogging world and am happy I found it.

  3. lacy, you've outdone yourself. thanks for all these wonderful ideas, and now I get to check out the link ups too!

Anyway, thank you for all the ideas! It made my planning a lot easier and fun! Here is my post if you would like to see how I used all the great ideas:

    Thanks again Lacy for all your great resources and for all the hard work you put into providing so many fun ideas for our Catholic Faith!
    God bless!

  5. Do you have a printable coloring page of St. Valentine? As you did with St. Anne? I plan on letting my kiddos color as I read to them the story of St. Valentine. I cannot find an easy to print coloring page. Thanks!
