{Valentine's Day}

We had a wonderful {Valentine's Day} this year!

It started on Friday night when Jake and I went to dinner and a movie.  We saw Valentine's Day.  It was a great Valentine's movie to watch.  It was so lovely to go on a date with my husband!
Then on Sunday, the girls got a couple of surprises.  

They got balloons:

{Kate loved her balloon!}

. . . a movie:

. . . and some toys:
{this one was supposed to be for Christmas but we decided to wait to give it to her, so she got it for Valentine's Day}

Emmy played with Cinderella and the Prince all day yesterday.  She changed Cinderella's outfit every five minutes and we are already missing some of those darn mini shoes.

It's also a tradition that Jake gets the girls each a white rose every Valentine's Day.  This tradition started when Emmy was a baby and will continue until they are grown.  Jake loves doing it for the girls!

Emmy got heart-shaped Valentine's pancakes with red syrup:

And we ended the day making sugar cookies.  Emmy loved helping me make them.  She loved rolling out the dough:

We had a great {Valentine's Day} and hope you did, too!

I love your snowman!! He's WAY bigger than ours, but you work with what you've got, huh?
I just have to say I feel your pain with those dang shoes. I don't know if you saw my blog post awhile back, but we have the same Cinderella doll and for awhile those shoes were the bane of my existence!! Good luck!
