Valentine's Day 2012

My kids were excited to see the hearts hanging in the kitchen when they woke up.

We've all been sick with colds, but I still wanted to make it special for them.
I planned a pink dinner. And didn't worry about getting the veggies in them today.

We really enjoy Panekoek, a dutch pancake that is basically like a crepe.
Mine were not super round, but really, who cares!

So I made them pink and made pink whipping cream and had red strawberries.

It was all so simple and yet it was such a bid deal to my kids.
We finished dinner off with a Kinder surprise egg a special treat.
I'm so glad I did this extra effort for them.
It was wonderful to see how happy and excited they were for dinner all day.


  1. You did a fantastic job! What a special memory for the kids. It's true...it doesn't take much effort to bring on the smiles! Maybe we should have Valentine's Day more than once a year :)

  2. Good work Tara! I made hearts to hang from the lights as well with the kids on Monday! My mom never did that. My kids loved it. Now to see how long it will take before we take them down. :)

  3. This is so cute! I love how you put so much love into what you feed your family every day, and this is yet another example.
