Valentine's Day is kind-of a fun, little holiday. Everett was still miserably sick, but we managed to celebrate a little. We made Jake a really cool scratch Valentine's Day card. We also made a heart-shaped pizza:
(One half pepperoni and jalapeños and the other half pepperoni and pineapple)
...and heart-shaped strawberries to dip in chocolate ganache.
Dinner was delish. The pizza was super tasty and the strawberries and chocolate HAS TO BE a new tradition. We also had salad. Salad schmalad. After dinner we exchanged gifts and it became obvious that we should have gifted each other Hooked-On-Phonics instead.
It's an ongoing joke that Jake's muscles keep getting smaller. (Jake worked construction when we got married... now he works behind a desk.) So I was teasing him a little in his card... but really the joke was on me because I spelled muscles... mussels. Whoops.
(I gave Jake a few tools that he requested).
Then I got this awesome drink dispenser that I asked for.
Jake added some of my favorite candy and a homemade card...
HA! Whoops again!
The best part of the card was a little note from Everett.
Everett accidentally spelled mom... most. Looks like we all need a built-in spell-checker!
I love our little family and I love celebrating Valentine's Day together. Jake and Everett mean so much to me and I don't know how I could ever live without them. (Hopefully I don't ever have to!)
Happy Valentine's Day 2012... however you want to spell it....
