Valentine's Day (2015)

Valentine's Day this year was spent at home, doing special, festive activities as usual.

The girls made Valentine's for their most special people.

The day before, we'd gone shopping for a few little treats for their special people.

I made sure all of the girls' snacks throughout the day were Valentine's Day themed. Strawberries with dove chocolate hearts...

Chocolate pancakes cut into hearts with a cookie cutter, sprinkled with powdered sugar and heart shaped sprinkles.

Heart shaped grilled cheese sandwiches, strawberries and a Ghirardelli chocolate square. 

And heart shaped cheese and strawberries...strawberries are a special treat for us in the winter time so they kept asking for them. 

The girls got all dressed up pretty and we did a little photo shoot.

We made sugar cookies.

Then we had our 3rd annual Valentine's Day tea party. The first year we did this, Mercedes was 2 and Emerald was about 9 months old. I served Mercedes hot chocolate in a sippy cup while Emerald was napping. Every year it gets more fun. :)

Later that afternoon, the girls' Uncle Michael and Aunt Laura surprised them by coming over with their photo equipment for a real photo shoot!
