Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend with those you love -
Our little family had lots of sickness floating around - so we were all feeling a bit puny. But, we did manage to have fun together on Saturday just laying around, watching movies, snuggling and eating lots of heart shaped foods!
Emily and Rachel were feeling particularly low - so they began the day snuggled up in the kitchen while I made breakfast!
I made heart shaped pink pancakes with sprinkles, strawberries and pink milk. We read Biscuit's Valentine and 1 Corinthians 13:
At the little ladies places was a cute new dress I found on Target clearance after Christmas:
Samuel enjoyed his pancake too!
For lunch, I had planned heart shaped pasta - but the girls were not up to that, they wanted toast. So - I made heart shaped cinnamon toast instead! David brought me these beautiful roses and I had fun arranging them in a thrifted vase!
I had thought about having a candlelight dinner and moving our table in front of the fireplace, getting all dressed up and having a very formal and fancy dinner in the evening. But, since we weren't feeling well, I skipped the dressing up and formal part - but still moved that table for a cozy candlelight dinner in front of the fire.
The little ladies had small princess Valentine's at their places and we enjoyed the beautiful roses! I made pizza with heart shaped pepperoni just like we had done last year and planned to open some special chocolates for dessert, but we skipped that part and just let them enjoy their princess Valentine candy.
It was a good day and I think everyone is feeling a little better now! We also had a little Valentine tea party on Friday morning all set up for Grandma when she came over to watch the girls while I went to lunch with a friend:
