we love to celebrate love

A little late, but the kids were too cute not to share these pictures. In case you can't tell, I love celebrating Valentine's Day because it's just another excuse to tell the people you love that you love them, and do things that make them feel special. And that always makes for a great day.

Anna's "pink breakfast." There was toast cut into one big heart (with strawberry jam) and two little hearts (with nutella and pink sprinkles), strawberry yogurt, strawberries and blueberries, and some strawberry milk (in a pretty cup, with a lady bug charm-- thanks Susan!)

This was a huge hit. I cannot count the number of times we have had pink breakfasts in the month since Valentine's Day.

I told Anna to show me the Valentine she was holding and this is what I got. She's getting so goofy and makes me laugh all the time. The baggie is filled with Teddy Grahams and has a tag that says "BEAR HUGS! from Anna and Levi." We brought them to play group for all our friends there and then she brought them to Joy School. Thank you Family Fun!

Looking dapper for Valentine's Day!

Anna and I made chocolate covered strawberries for Daddy after she came home from her Joy School party. She was a pro and I stopped hovering and started taking pictures after her first two strawberries turned out perfectly.

I decorated Sam's car with some hearts with messages on them while he was showering, and taped some valentines inside Anna's door for her. Sam had his Harvard interview that afternoon, so we didn't do anything big, but I made this pizza (oh. my. goodness. That is some darn good pizza) for dinner, and we had these smoothies for dessert. Sam brought me flowers that were beautiful and lasted forever.

I love that Anna can dip her own strawberries! So wise of you to make sure she has all the essential survival skills for life.
