Valentine's Day Fun!

Cadence choose her Valentine's (Bratz dolls) and suckers last week and wrote her name and her friends' names on them (scribbles). She took Valentines to her school, aerobics and around to some of house and gave them to her friends. I think she though it was like Halloween because she opened her little bag and said "trick-or-treat" at two of her friends' houses. She said "Happy Valentine's" most of the time though.
I thought I would be super crafty and make perfect looking cake-pops (as made popular by Bakerella) for our grown-ups friends and neighbors. They tasted delish, but were not as easy or cute as I had hoped. I will make them again because I learned what not to do when I was making them.
Valentines is also Chris' birthday. Being the great romantic gift giver that I am, I got him some bling bling! He put his Bubba teeth in to model his new treasure. Now you see why our kids are such amazing models!!!

When I asked Chris what he wanted for Valentine's/his birthday, he said, "STEAK." We had rib eye steak and Shrimp a la Cecy on Saturday and Monday. It was so yummy - better than we would have eaten at an expensive restaurant (and much cheaper)! Eat your heart our Hamilitons, Maddox and Copper Mill!
The kids also got a special valentine from their secret admirers! Cadence loves the play kitchen in nursery and other kids houses. We've had this one in the barn for a while waiting for a special ocassion to give it to them. We didn't want to give it to them for Christmas because it would have been gift overload. Cadence played all day with it and loves her Elmo Talking Restaurant!!!
Valentine's and Chris' birthday were great! Relaxing and playing with the kids! Happy Valentines to all of you!
