Anyway, since Tuesday mornings start off with preschool and my girls do not like to wait for breakfast I needed a game plan that got a special Valentine's breakfast on the table. I opted for toast with strawberry cream cheese, which I stamped with a heart cookie cutter, and then I cut strawberries into heart shapes. The girls loved it!
I also made sure everyone was decked out in a special Valentine's outfit. Aren't we cute?
The girls had a good time at their preschool parties that day, and the pick-up and drop-offs kept us busy for most of the day. Elliott and I planned on having a special sushi dinner after the girls went to bed, so I only had to think about what they would like for dinner. Their favorite dinner ever? Breakfast for dinner. Those girls love breakfast for dinner! So I pulled out my heart-shaped pancake shaper and cookie cutter to make the pancakes pretty.
Yeah, that didn't work too well. They stuck to the shapers and oozed out when I took the shapers off. Oh well, the girls loved watching me try.
I think the girls had a great Valentine's Day. Elliott and I also enjoyed a "dinner date" after their bedtime, though our sushi plan fell flat on its face. Their are only two sushi restaurants close to our house. The first place I called told me they weren't offering take-out because they were so busy (duh!) and the second place didn't even answer the phone! Seriously?! Well, we cashed in a free pizza at Papa John's and still spent some quiet time together, catching up on TV shows. Yep, we lead a crazy life, don't we?
