I love Valentine's Day. Not for all the expensive roses and candy and dinners out but for the chance to tell my friends and family that I love them in a special way.
Andrew and I had a great day together.
Our day started with Andrew's present to me...he slept until 9:30!! It was the best present he could have given me. Now I'm going to demand it every year.

Then we had a yummy breakfast of oatmeal heart-shaped pancakes with blueberry syrup. They were delish.

Heart shaped and heart healthy....YUM!

If you don't believe me about the pancakes...see what Andrew has to say about them:

We spent the day cleaning the house and doing laundry. Not fun but definitely necessary. I have found that while cleaning the house, toddler 'help' is not necessarily helpful. But it can be pretty funny. While I vacuumed, Andrew followed me with his little vacuum and copied every single thing I did. It cracked me up.

Our friends Jill and Tate came over for dinner. I made lasagna and I have to was delicious.

These were Andrew's presents. I've looked for a while to find teddy bears that would fit into the jerseys he had when he first came home. I never found bears but I did find these adorable stuffed animals.

This was our first attempt at a picture...poor lion.

SO cute!
