Celebrate the ones you love

Happy Valentine’s Day from our family to yours!

(For this Heart Hat Craft and other Valentine activities for little ones, see this post.)

Hopefully, regardless of how you feel about the commercialism that has crept into our society around the holidays (ugghh!), you are still making this a special day for the ones you love.

We are keeping things simple around our house this year. Before the kids came downstairs this morning, I mixed up some pancake batter and put it in this…..

…..which made it really easy (even for me!) to pour these…..

I added some strawberries—heart-shaped-already-by-God, you know—and ended up with a fun Valentine’s Day breakfast that made all the kids smile.

(I got the idea from Pinterest, and it came from this website.)

When I set the table, I added a box of chocolates for each child. So, YOUR challenge of the day is to figure out which candy was for which child.  Leave me a comment below if you think you know!

The kids weren’t the only ones who woke up to a special treat this morning. As you may remember, I have a secret admirer. I hear from him every Valentine’s Day, and this year was no exception. I found this sitting on the bar when I woke up today:

Inside was one of my all-time-favorite treats:

Oh, boy, I am in trouble now. 😉

If you haven’t already, you can go here to read about my secret admirer.

I’d love to hear what you are doing for your little (and big) Valentines today. (I won’t reveal Troy’s just yet since that would ruin the surprise for him.) Please leave me a comment to let me know what special things you are doing today, and don’t forget to guess whose box was whose!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Amy, my momma used to make heart shaped biscuits for us for Valentine’s breakfast….she did bunny shaped ones for Easter too. Great memories you’re making for your family!

  2. o.k., baseball, Chandler; rock, Connor; dogs, Addy; social butterfly, Remi. First time in several years that I was with my love on Valentine’s — this year we exchanged cards in the airport while waiting for our flight home from Paris. If anyone had told me at our wedding that we would be together in Paris on Valentine’s day 50 years later, I would never have believed it!!
