Happy Valentine's Day

What's the best way to spend Valentine's Day? With the ones you love most, right?! I love the people in this picture with me more than anything!

This picture was taken as we enjoyed a Chocolate Tour on our town square this past Saturday. We had a lot of fun despite the COLD temps, and we ate more chocolate than we should have. :) But it was GOOD!!

Gimme some chocolate and nobody gets hurt!!

How many pieces of chocolate can I put in my mouth at one time?!

Somebody looks like they have had TOO MUCH chocolate.:)

My big boy pausing to take a look at this...

Birds! (and lots of them)

After the chocolate tour, we headed home to warm up and work on these...

Mary Claire and I had so much fun making these crayon hearts for her class!
 She enjoyed giving them today at her party!
We spent Saturday night making treats to give our teachers for Valentine's Day: Mint chocolate heart-shaped brownies with strawberry icing and sprinkles:), peanut butter blossoms, and candy hearts. (Sorry I didn't snap a shot of these treats, but they turned out YUMMY!)

Jan gave me these beautiful flowers and a couple of other special gifts.

Today, we spent our Valentine's Day afternoon at the doctor's office. Jonah had an appointment with the pediatric surgeon. He has an umbilical hernia that has not corrected itself, but the doctor stated today that surgery is not really necessary for our Jonah. He gave us a choice, but after discussing it, we opted to pass on the surgery. Hopefully, as Jonah grows, the hernia will become even smaller and not cause any problems for him.
So, after the appointment with the surgeon, we headed out on our "Family Date" to none other than the fabulous, ever-so-fancy Chik-Fil-A!!:) (This is Mary Claire's favorite date place.)
We had a wonderful time riding in the car looking at all of the valentines the kids got from their classmates and spending time together.
I hope you all got to spend today with the ones you love most!
Happy Valentine's Day!
