The girls woke up to their Bug 'Ems and lockets complete with pictures. They had a bouquet of heart shaped lollipops and one Hershey's Marshmallow heart inside their new friend. Both seemed pleased, which in turn pleased me to no end.
I woke to coffee and a large Reece's Peanut Butter heart from a sweetheart who understands that when a wife says "I need for nothing", doesn't necessarily mean that she should get nothing. I'm not a materialistic person at all and he knows that the simplest of things will always touch my heart. I love Reece's and he found a sweet little heart - which completely melted mine.
Today, when I pick the girls up from school, I am going to surprise them with a trip the ice cream shoppe. They love it when we go because it isn't very often and they see it as a special treat - just as they should. I attempted to create Rocky Road Muffins but I fear that my endeavor has 'crashed and burned' as it were... perhaps I'll purchase a small cake at the grocer on my way out today.
I love my Valentines - they are a funny little lot but I am so thankful that they are mine.
