Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2012

I am so in love with a little actually gigantic thing called Pinterest. I loved gathering ideas for this year’s Valentine’s celebration. Valentine morning, the kids wake to find a decorated kitchen table (much simpler presentation this year I might add) and celebrations begin with breakfast. This year, I enlisted the kids’ help.

While I made the bacon and mixed up the pancakes, the kids made (solely on their own) their conversation heart toast. Ahhhh…thank you Pinterest for the very last minute idea AND I had everything on hand already! Yep. Add it to the breakfast menu. Didn’t they turn out cute?!

Katie then hopped onto her 3rd quarter online conference with her teacher while I prepared the pancakes (and held a very sleepy & crabby baby with her first head cold). Oh my goodness. This blog did not lie. These pancakes were fantastic and what will be a rare treat as they are clearly not considered food worthy of a well balanced breakfast. Gotta love Cinnamon Roll Pancakes though! Thank you Pinterest for gathering the idea.

Sweet Clare is back down for a nap, it’s 10:00 a.m. and our meal is served. (I think our time frame is a bit different this year with Clare’s presence in the kitchen.)

Pinterest was also the inspiration behind this gift left for my husband’s morning eyes. I’m often (okay, ALWAYS) asleep when he goes to work. This way I can say “I love you” and still sleep.

The kids had a great time at their valentine party this afternoon. Clare slept (she’s definitely a bit under the weather) while I tutored and celebrated the success of a very special young man, and then it was off to Chick-fil-a for family night and back home for Charlie Brown and chocolate shakes with the neighbor. Oh yes, there was the customary Valentine family exchange and some mail to open from long-distance family. What a great day!! Now, my husband and I are going to snuggle up on the couch and watch another episode of Bones. (Have I mentioned we are totally addicted. Love NetFlix streamed through the Wii!)

Again, our house extends to you our love. Hope your day was blessed by some extra lovin’ also. Good night.
