Celebrating Valentine's Day

We are not big on celebrating valentine's day in this house.  Once upon a time (before children) we went on a real valentine's date to a fancy restaurant, with a fixed menu, and a steep bill. Since then we've realized that a steak dinner at home with a bottle of wine is just our style.  No fancy gifts, cards, or flowers.  Well, sometimes chocolates.

Then I remember that we have kids and I should probably put a little more effort in to celebrating.  Or at very least put up a few pink paper hearts and bake a special dessert.  We made a chain of hearts and my little helper helped hang it. Oh and Phil got some marbled red velvet cheesecake brownies for dessert

This photo was submitted to the I Heart Faces photo challenge – www.iheartfaces.com.  The theme is hearts.  Visit their blog to check out the other entries.

    Natalie: You bake, kids love that as an activity. The only time I get begged for decorations is halloween and Christmas. Other than that we don't decorate a lot so I don't think you have to start a fund for future decorating ;)
