We had an awesome Valentine’s Day! The girls were very specific this year about what they expected. They reminded me frequently that I had to get them Valentine’s presents. To be honest, the first time they mentioned it I was grateful. I’m always focused on the cards and presents they’re giving out, I always forget I need to get them something! I went all candy this year (plus a cute t-shirt). Star Wars chocolates, cotton candy, and a bax of mixed chocolates. They were in heaven!
For breakfast we had (vaguely) heart shaped pancakes with strawberries. Most of my pancakes actually looked like hearts! I was rather proud. It took a few to find my groove, but we got it done. Caden was in charge of cutting up the strawberries. That girl likes her fruit cut up tiny. I approve.
After cleaning up we headed down to my parents where Caden and my mom practiced their selfie skills. We picked up a few last minute vacation items, then the girls had their much demanded scavenger hunt. My mom did this last year when we did Valentine’s dinner at our house, and I think it’s the girls favorite part of Valentine’s Day!
The girls worked with my dad to buy me a present. They even had to Facetime to pick everything out! I LOVE IT. I’m not a huge jewelry person, but I love bracelets. This is a black leather bracelet, with their birthstones on it! I love that it has pieces of my kids on it! My dad has gotten pretty good at picking out presents over the years! And my mom made a flourless chocolate cake for dessert! #soblessed #sospoiled
