And There You Have It

1

Music first...

"Nothing is more importanter than love."  
~ Abigail Baker

I started my day when it was still dark so that I could have some quiet time in the Word.

And then cooked pink pancakes... oh my goodness... greatest recipe I've ever tasted from 'the pioneer woman' (her holiday cookbook)

And then the girls and I did a little craft.  I was so happy when I remembered I saved it.  Perfect for a snow day!

Anna only wears skirts now; it's her thing.  And this twirly one is her favorite.

We had Valentines Day tea.

And made cupcakes for after dinner.

I did a ton of cooking that day.  When dinner was just about ready the girls and I ran upstairs to get all dressed up for dinner.  And they opened their Valentine envelopes.

And we ate, yum!  I followed The Pioneer Woman Cooks Valentines Day romantic dinner plan start to finish!

23

And the night ended with a late night playing in the snow with flashlights.  They needed a little "recess"

Daddy was building an ice castle and I made all kinds of paths through the backyard so Abigail would stop falling through.

26

After baths it was time for 'decorate your own cupcake'

27

And right before they drifted off to sleep Abigail was telling Scott all about Valentines Day. When I grabbed my phone to record it was her second time explaining so it lost some of it's charm.  But I thought it was so sweet.



And friends, there you have it! Valentines day... that's a wrap!
