Valentine's Festivities

We had a couple of really fun things to do for Valentine's Day. First off, Anslie had a little party with all of the kids from our play group. My friend, Sarah, had the wonderful idea of bringing cupcakes and cookies to the park for the kids to decorate while the moms enjoyed some delectable treats of their own. My fave was the chocolate covered strawberries and marshmallows. Anslie was just happy to get a healthy dose of sugar!
Anslie and Evan with Anslie's was a big hit with all the kids!

On Valentine's Day itself, a bunch of our friends and Kevin and I got together for a V-Day dinner without the kiddos. They stayed at home with babysitters while we ate GINORMOUS baked potatoes, salad, and chocolate fondu. We also played the Newlyweds game, which was really fun and funny! Overall, I think it was a really fun holiday!
