Valentine's Day is kind of a big deal around here... I heart all the hearts!
We are not into all the commercialized craziness, but it is still near the top of my favorite holidays.

This year marks Papa's and my TENTH Valentine's Day together!

The girls and I baked peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for Papa...
this recipe plus dark chocolate chips

And made strawberries and chocolate dip.
dip recipe here (buttercream frosting actually)

We don't do a lot of wheat, but it was in the house, and grilled cheese is an easy to Valentine food.

And now Papa has a lovely lovey little lunch to take to work.
I am sure all the other guys will be sooooo jealous ;)

I got 10 red roses... There were a dozen, but Bunny got one. And well, if Bunny gets something Squirrely thinks she should get one too. They were both de-petaled ( I made up that word) in minutes.
So we had rose petals in our bath that night... Which was nice too.

All this Valentine fun has been brought to you by a day off from daycare due to snow...
Lots of snow.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Each week I join several linky parties! What a fun way to share and learn!
