Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day was an up/ down day for us. Brian and I celebrated on Friday night by going to a pottery painting store called Color Me Mine. It was quite fun! In my naivety I thought we would maybe spend 20 minutes painting our mugs that we picked out. WRONG! 2 hours later I could have kept going, but it was time to get back to pick up the girls. We get the mugs back on Tuesday so I will post pictures then. I planned the date so I had thought we would have time for a dessert, but we just painted instead. I would really like to go back. For those in the area its really fun and easy! 

Saturday morning I took Brian to school with the plan from him that he would be working ALL day. So I had planned to make tons of fun V-day treats with the girls. However, I did not go shopping prior to that day. So we went over and purchased as many V-day treat ideas as we could. There were no pink and red sprinkles anywhere! 

We headed home and here are the results:

Naomi helped make everything! She did mixing and pouring! Its rare for me to have that much patience, but it was enjoyable!
Gwen enjoying the cupcakes!

Gwen has become quite sneaky recently. She kept 
climbing up on the chairs when I wasn't looking 
and grabbing cupcakes and rice krispy treats. 
Naomi didn't like any of the treats and only ate some 
cool-whip with sprinkles.

Brian took Naomi and Gwen with Uncle Tim over to do some 
sledding as it had snowed the ENTIRE day!

refuses to stay on straight!

Pretty in pink!

Snow Angels!

After the sledding and snow angels, we ordered 
some Cafe Rio (my order was wrong, of course).
It was still good though. Then Tim and Brian went 
out to rent a movie and we all watched Henry Poole 
is here. Artistic movie, but a pretty good one. Then 
Tim went home and we went to bed. Not much 
V-day for the couple. Shame!

Gwen as a snow angel is adorable! That sounds like a lovely day, but who eats all the treats (besides Gwen)?

Beautiful treats Carrie. Don't you find baking/cooking to be so therapeutic (some of the time)? And I think it is sweet you little tiny Tim spend V-day with ya'll.
