Grace could not be cajoled into the picture for some odd reason, darn it, but she was the boss of this project and man alive she’s sure becoming a great cook!
I decided I better bite the bullet and do our traditional Valentine’s sugar cookies too right alongside her.
Who wouldn’t want to get a plate of those babies delivered to their front door??
Luckily I scrounged up some stuff speedy quick to fill up those cups that pacified her …really exciting things like hand sanitizer and raisins.
And we whipped up our pink pancakes.
Lucy and Claire had also been working on a big Valentine’s gift for me and Dave.
Complete with a string of hearts:
…and a poem:
I was on-the-ball enough to buy my four girls some beautiful multi-colored roses.
I gave them to them with a little poem about why I picked the specific color I did for each of them.
It made me cry to read it. I’m just so grateful for these girls of mine and how different and unique they each are!!
It was the best way ever to beat the hoards of crowds out on the town on Valentine’s night.
Sure love that “Love Day” and my “loves” that I get to be surrounded by every day.
