This month it’s all about love – doing what you love with the ones you love! Spend Life’s Best Moments together creating something beautiful, making something tasty or giving back to those in need.

Make Sweet Treats

It doesn’t take a culinary degree and a ton of fancy ingredients to turn your kitchen into a Sweet Shop! The recipes below need a few simple ingredients and could very well lead to a new family favorite.

These chocolate-dipped pretzels look gourmet, but they’re fun and easy to make! And who could resist these marshmallow ballerinas?

Here are some other ideas for easy sweets!
Oreo Pops
Pink Kiss Cookies
White Chocolate Popcorn



Playing with animals at the local shelter, visiting with residents in the nursing home, cooking and serving a meal at a soup kitchen – there are countless ways you can make a difference together as a family.

And you don’t even have to leave home to do it. Spend the evening writing letters and assembling care packages for the troops with Operation Gratitude or clean out the kitchen cabinets and assemble donations for the local food pantry!
