Valentine's Day

Friday night Raymond came home with monkey balloons for the girls for Valentines Day. Abby wanted a balloon so bad. Every Valentine's day Raymond will bring them balloons. I thought the monkey balloons fit the girls just right. They were nice enough to "share" them with us this morning before church, Abby wrapped the string around our closet door knobs.
Raymond brought me chocolate covered strawberries, my favorite! I would rather have chocolate covered strawberries than flowers.
Saturday the girls and I made Raymond chocolate cupcakes in ice cream cones.
Batter in the cones before they went into the oven.
Right out of the oven.

Iced and ready to eat.
I only made 12 because I don't know how to store them. The rest was made into regular cupcakes.
Abby watching Raymond vacuuming out the car. The pants she has on I made last year for the girls. I guess they were really big on them last year as the pants fit Abby perfect this year :)

For Valentine's day night Dennis & Leslie watched the girls while Raymond and I went out on a date. We went to look for a new phone for me, which turned out to be a waste of time. (Lesson learned: If you can get it online, buy it online, it will save you at least 30 minutes) We then went to dinner at Qdoba Mexican Grill and then to see He Just Not That Into You. Thank you Dennis and Leslie for keeping the girls and the Malco gift card! We love you.

I agree with you 100% about the chocolate covered strawberries over the flowers.....bring on the chocolate covered strawberries! We have a fondue pot that we love to get out, melt some strawberries and dip whatever we can find :) We haven't had it out since Christmas Day b/c Matt and I are having a little contest to see who can lose the most weight in 6 weeks, so guess it is staying up for awhile :)
