Valentine's Day 2014

You know how we love to celebrate holidays in this house, right? We especially love to celebrate Love Day. And here is how we did it this year...

Breakfast...because anything goes on Valentine's Day. : )

While the big kids got caught up on school work, Flynn and I set the table...

and made heart shaped pizzas with heart shaped pepperoni and strawberry Kool-Aid for lunch.

After an extra long afternoon nap (me) and some nibbling on these yummy chocolates (the kids), we made a yummy dinner.

Peyton made Baked Ziti...

Tossed Salad...

and garlic toast made from leftover buns that a friend sent in with sloppy joes earlier this week. Note to self...remember that...it was really good!

Then it was time for a few small presents.

I love the look of excitement on her face. : )

All my loves. : )

We finished the night with Brownies made by Peyton...

and for those who wanted...Brownie Sundaes made by Madison. : )

Hope your day was filled with sweets and love, my friends!
