The girls and I are alone on valentine’s this year while Dan is away doing some carpentry work. (Before he left this morning, he did leave us each a little treat on the kitchen table when we came downstairs this morning). The girls and I are still celebrating the day in our own way. This morning I made these supposed-to-be-pink-turned-out-purple heart pancakes. I am definitely following in the footsteps of my mother who always made us green breakfasts on St Patty’s day. The pancakes were very yummy, even though Dan was missing…
We also have two new friends in our home,who in this picture seem to really be in love as well. I got the pattern from a book I found at an estate/tag sale this summer. It was a little lady who was moving from her home into a nursing home and selling many of her posessions. She was so crafty and the sale was full of patterns, yarn, thread, books, needles. Tucked inside this book was a little notecard with her shaky handwriting that listed all of her grandchildren’s names. Beside each name was the toy she had picked out from the book to make for each of them. Very sweet.
The turtles are filled with lentils which makes them so floppy and fun. The girls love tossing them around to each other and Emma carries hers around in a big green bucket.
*Happy Valentine’s Day to all!!*
