Autumn was very excited about Valentine's Day this year, and so I had to get more into the holiday than I usually do. We cut out red and pink hearts and hung them from ceiling in our front room (all Autumn's idea). Autumn said that we needed to make cookies for Valentine's Day also. I don't have any pictures but we made heart shaped sugar cookies and decorated them. We even had their cousin Vaughn over and helped decorate/eat the cookies, and then Ben took Autumn to deliver the cookies to her friends.
Then on the actual day of Valentine's Day we had Ben's little sister and her husband visiting with us. I was at the track in the morning and when I got home Ben was making pancakes, but much to Autumn's dismay he refused to cook any heart-shaped pancakes.
We all went to the dollar theater and saw Madagascar 2 and afterwards we made empanadas, and I made special ones for Autumn and Prairie that were heart shaped (they were a lot more work, so there were only 2 heart-shaped empanadas made). Anyways it was a pretty relaxed day, but Autumn had been very very excited about it.
