I suppose all you pro-bloggers out there get your Valentine pics up the day of Valentine's but I like to keep my readers in suspense, so I wait four days.

Valentine's day is my favorite holiday of the year. I love the colors, I love the chocolates, I love all the attention my husband gives me, and I love the potential of a really expensive dinner that we have to make reservations for. I just LOVE Valentine's day. I always have these high hopes of making VD something really special and then, like everything else, I procrastinate and all of the cool balloons are sold out and all of the heart shaped everything is gone. And that was pretty much the story this year. I decided to fore-go the dinner out and stay home with all my little valentines. I did happen to find some really cool heart shaped tins at the dollar store (last minute, of course) so I made some chocolate chip cookies in those for the kids. And I called the pizza shop early in the day to order some heart shaped pizzas, so I guess I should pat myself on the back for that one. The cool balloons were, of course, sold out and all that was left were some ugly red heart/blob-looking creation. Oh well. The kids were thrilled with them because they had helium. (So easy to please).

The kids were able to make Valentine cookies at Nanny's house on the 13th. I thought that was really cool that she took the time to make the mess and to make the frosting! I guess you can do that when you're a grandma :) Someday.....

To top the day off, though, I arrived home to find a quaint little package on my doorstep. My dear friend Dawn had made a cake for me! I was totally impressed (Thanks Dawn). It made me chuckle because I had seen this heart mold on her wall as a decoration and had commented on it so when I pulled it out of the package, a smile came across my face. And then I devoured it (Okay, I shared a little).

I would show you a picture of the beautiful chocolate bouquet my husband ordered for me but......well, its the 18th now and they are looooonnnnggg gone.

Awww, your welcome, I'm glad you liked the cake! I love all the cute pictures of your kids. Derek and I (as usual) waited to long to get reservations/babysitter on Valentines so we spent this year at home with the little valentines also.
