Valentines day

Valentines Day is more of a family event here, perhaps because my girls love pink and red and hearts more than my husband!
We had friends over for supper and feasted on pasta with RED sauce, HEART shaped biscuits/scones, HEART cut butter, RED tomatoes, and Martha's amazing salad dressing on our salad. (that counts as Valentiny because we love the dressing and we love Martha!)
Sadly I don't have a pic of the desserts, brownies with HEART shapes outlined in icing sugar and jello squares, mine didn't quite look this good, but were fun all the same.
And our activity was a Valentine Village, which Holly had stashed away in her cupboard at Christmas, when it was on sale and called a Christmas Gingerbread Village.  Amazing what a change of name can do to a thing!
Hope and Heidi had a ball, and did really well, only eating about half their body weight in candy, and we managed it as our table centre for a couple of days till they broke into the first house.
We finished the last house off this morning on the way home from church.  Yum.

The other funny thing that happened that day was at breakfast.  I had made tiny felt pockets for the girls, tucked under their breakfast bowls each containing 3 red jelly beans and a heart shaped not saying Mummy loves you.  There was much excitement (long may it continue that something so simple can please for so long), and Heidi was declaring that she was going to keep her Valentine forever and tucked her beans and note back in safely.  I turned to my left to see that Hopie has already eaten her beans (no surprise there) but also attempted to eat the note.  She handed me the piece of paper and told me 'Hopie no like it!'
