We had a big Valentine's Day this year. Last year we had waffles, so now it's a tradition according to Carys. I made waffles, needless to say.
I was set up the night before as you can see here. We also had hot chocolate - a recipe from Crockin' Girls that I was wanting to try. It was too rich for everyone's liking.
Each child got their own personal heart of candy and a little bag with Combos and red licorice in it.
Carys' heart had puppies on it. She loved it!
Greg gave me tulips - my favorite flower - although he can only ever find them potted for Valentine's Day. I prefer cut flowers, but these are second best. He also gave me a package of cherry licorice (I don't like strawberry) and a bag of Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Sea Salt and Caramel!
I had found another recipe from Crockin' Girls for chocolate dipped marshmallows that the girls put together. These were a hit! Melting the almond bark in the crockpot was very easy.
Finally, Chase and I received a Valentine's Day gift from Landon via Amazon. It was a box of Twinings tea bags. We loved them! Twinings has by far the best Earl Grey tea of any I've tried.
It was a pretty terrific Valentine's Day all in all!
I am a follower of Jesus, wife to Greg, mom of 3 kiddos still being homeschooled and 1 college kid. I am busy all the time with school, laundry, cooking, housework, keeping the financial wheels spinning, and doing evaluations for other homeschoolers.
