Our Valentine's Day

We had a nice little Valentine's Day.
Know what I love about this Hallmark holiday?
It's just another excuse to bake with my girls!
The girls & I made some treats for our neighbors & friends.
We made THESE again (We first made them over Christmas break)
The girls helped me with the peanut butter. And, after I dipped them in chocolate they helped with the sprinkles.
Yum. I wanted to keep them all.
I bagged them up in individual bags & tied some ribbon on them.
Along with the treats, I gave each neighbor this card that said,
"We love being your neighbor!"
{Our family & friends got the version of the card I posted yesterday}
We put the treats & cards in our basket and set out to deliver our goodies.
The girls were SO excited to deliver their goodies to our friends & neighbors.
(And in case you are wondering, Kate has insisted on wearing this heart dress everyday for the past 4 days)
Having sparkly shoes makes delivering Valentines more fun.
Except for poor Claire who got a blister on her foot (she has really wide feet & Target sparkly shoes cause havoc on her feet, but she still insists on wearing them)
The cutest little cupids I have ever seen.
After delivering the rest of our Valentines to friends, Kate gave Claire a Valentine that she made her at preschool.
The girls got books from my mom:
And, Kevin's mom gave them Princess Dry Erase Boards.
Kevin made them cards & gave them a pack of m&m's.
I got them....nothing.
But, I did make them heart shaped grilled cheese for dinner!
Tonight, Kevin and I celebrated our un-Valentine's Day/Engagement Anniversary.
Kate snapped this picture of us today before we went to dinner:
We don't give each other Valentine's Day presents, but we did go out to dinner to one of our favorite places in town. Dinner was amazing. I got the double cut pork chop with mashed potatoes. Kevin got the Beef Bourgeoisie. And, then our waitress brought us the chocolate fondue for dessert (for free!!!) because it was our Engagement Anniversary.
I still can't believe that 9 years ago Kevin asked me to be his wife!
Happy Un-Valentine's Day to an amazing man.
(You know Kevin is amazing since he has put up with me for over 9 years!)
I am glad he isn't sick of me yet!

  4. Happy Engagement Anniversary Mel. You two make a super cute couple. I wish we'd live closer. You both seem like people my husband and I would have a lot of fun with. Glad you enjoyed your dinner date. Your fondue looks yummy! And the girls looked darling in their Vday clothes delivering treats. How sweet.
