Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone has had a wonderful day! Me and Jake went out for a nice dinner last night (to avoid Valentine’s day dinner crowd), and Serena stayed home with all the kids! We had our Valentine’s Day Party on Sunday so I figured I would post the pictures for it, along with some valentines day recipes. Serena and Kalli decided that they wanted to do the planning, cooking, and take charge of the party so they did it all they did a great job coming up with great Valentines Day Ideas!
The party started with a snack of strawberry yogurt, strawberries and whipped cream mixed together and put into muffin tins with popsicle sticks in to hold them, and put them in the freezer over night. They turned out great and were festive looking!
While they were waiting for the girls to finish up making dinner, the kids worked on Valentines day cards and hats!

The main course was pancakes, the girls dyed them with red food coloring and used a condiment bottle to squirt the batter out into a heart shaped, they chopped up bananas and strawberries to put on top, and
To make it even more special they poured a container of whipped cream into a pan put it in the freezer over night and when they took it out they used a heart cookie cutter for heart shaped whipped cream to top it all off!
To finish off our meal they also cut out sausage in with a cookie cutter into heart shapes, used rolled up bacon to resemble a rose, and made blueberry muffins.
