Valentine's Day - Make Someone Smile

My wonderful friend Kacey over at Chronicles of a Mommy headed up Project Happy Heart in honor of Tuesday, a little girl who went to heaven too early. Kacey really wanted to turn her heartbreak into something positive & asked that we all try to do something special for someone who really needed it in the spirit of Tuesday, and then post about it today, appropriately Valentine's Day, when we all extend our hearts a little bit more. 


We decided to send a gift to Travon, among a few others, through the Make a Child Smile organization. Travon is only 2 years old & suffers from Opsoclonus - Myoclonus - Ataxia Syndrome. You can read about him here. Travon is one of the featured children of 2009 but there are also other children with addresses where you can send a simple card to uplift their spirits. 

And here are just a few more Valentine's Day pictures:

Roses we gave to Tristan.



The cake I made for Tristan's school party.

Kisses from Nash to you on V Day!



Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Steph! The cake looks great and Nash is, as always, adorable.

We made some little chocolate "heart" cakes last night (see link I posted on FB), and they tasted great, but did not come out of the pan as easily as promised. So they were more worthy of eating rather than picture taking, LOL!

Another great post, Stephanie. Wonderful of you to do something for less fortunate children. It is sadly something that many of us, myself included, only think about during the holidays.

Off to read your links and get motivated to do something. Thanks!

This is a sweet Valentine's cake! I wish that I could sample a piece especially since I have not made dessert in say forever!!! I hope you had a romantic day on Saturday.
This is also a very noble cause that you are partaking in. God bless you!!!
I have been extremely busy as well and still am. I am trying to finish as many soaps for those less fortunate that my dad will be delivering. This here "superwoman" as you once put it can also get really weary at times. Sorry did not mean to complain, just chatting to a friend!!

What a LOVELY way to celebrate the holiday and sounds like you are teaching your children to be such wonderful and kindhearted people. The world needs more people like yourself.
Thank you for all you have done for Tuesday. It is truly a blessing to her family to have so much love and support.
