Valentine's Day Fun

We had a pretty relaxed V-Day weekend. Nathan came down with some sort of the sickies. He says it's the flu, I really hope not because while the girls have flu shots, I do not...Anyhow, due to the sickies, we had a pretty mild weekend. Lily and I did some baking Friday night. We made Rice Crispy Treats with some pink and red sugar on top (I know, just what those need, sugar on top).

We also made Cookie Brownie, which I think we are going to rename Death to Diets, because they are pretty much a combination of every sweet there is. I am going to post to recipe here, too, because, well, they are super yummy! But, eat them in small pieces because they are super sweet, too!

Yes, that is brownie batter with lumps of cookie dough in it. You then cook it and put icing on If I make this again I think I will forgo the icing. It really doesn't need it. Anyhow, here's the recipe if you need a sweet fix!

On Saturday, we got up and exchanged some small gifts. The girls gave Nate some chocolate covered cherries and we gave them some little Barbie dolls and a little tea set. So fun! Ava loved the Barbie and Lily made us have a tea party later in the day!

Also, my mom sent the girls some super fun toys. She got Lily this super cute Fairy outfit and sent Ava a cute little Glo Worm doll. She also got them both some little plants to grow and the growing wash cloth things.

Hope you all had a great weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!

Tori, the pictures are great! It's wonderful to hear about the girls' days - thank you. Tell Lily that I have a blouse with that same material (and it is a peasant cut as well) as the one she is wearing at her tea party. We'll have to wear them together one day! Hugs to all of you!
Love, Mom
