A SWEET Valentine's Day

 What a sweet SWEET day this has been! We enjoyed another day off of school because of the snow, so there was no morning rush to get out the door. We took our time getting ready and then the kids helped me make a special Valentiney breakfast. 
 Chocolate chip pancakes, pink eggs, and strawberries were on the menu for this morning;) 
A sweet start to our day, for sure!
After breakfast, we headed over to our good friends (and neighbors) the Robinson's house.  Since Valentines day is also my birthday, my sweet friend, Juli, called and offered to watch ALL FIVE of my kids so I could have a few hours to myself. After being snowed in for the past three days, a few hours to myself sounded like absolute BLISS and like the BEST birthday present EVER!!! I dropped the kids off, but didn't want to venture too far from home because the roads were still icy. I decided to just go to our neighborhood clubhouse to workout, then headed home to take a shower and get ready in PEACE;) After that, I ran to the grocery store for a few things before picking up the kids. 
It was nothing too exciting, but exactly what I needed.
When I picked up the kids, Juli had this darling gift waiting for me. It's just the.most.precious. thing. EVER and the PERFECT way to remember what my 34th birthday was like...a winter wonderland;)  
 When Shane got home from work later that evening, our Valentine/birthday celebrating continued. 
We had fun making our own heart shaped pizza's for dinner
 and then while they were baking, we played some silly Valentine games in the living room.
 For dessert, we pulled out our chocolate fountain and enjoyed some delicious fondue!
Addy-Kate gave it a thumbs up;) 
 Such a simple day, but I don't think it could have been any SWEETER!!

Happy Belated Birthday! Looks like a fun day. That was so sweet of your neighbor to watch the kids for you. I bet that chocolate fountain gets lots of use at your house.
