Happy Valentine's Day!

We just love a good excuse to get crafty and do some baking around here! Isabelle, Madeleine and I grabbed our bows, glitter and scissors last weekend and got to work on our creations.

Maddy was happy to grab a marker and do some coloring,
while Isabelle carefully printed each of her friends' names.
Then came Madeleine's sheer joy and bliss at having discovered an entire basket of lollipops.
"How delightful! And yes, I will take two!"

Isabelle waited to have her lolly until she had stamped, glittered and finished all her cards.

We also thought strawberry scones for some of our favorite people would be nice - the girls didn't mind a quality control test or two either.

Since Valentine's Day falls on a dreaded Monday this year we went out for Valentine breakfast Sunday morning at Cabbage Patch, an old house converted to a restaurant. It's very antiquey (sure, that's a word) and charming. The girls were quite taken with the relics - especially the old-fashioned curling iron in the bathroom that looked more like an instrument of torture than a beautifying device.
Maddy was also quite taken with her daddy.
Happy Valentine's Day from these two sweeties!
