Happy Valentine's Day!

Candy
Our Valentine's Day will begin with a special surprise: A card, mini puzzle and valentine candy. We will be busy with school work in the morning, but then take a break for...

Tea
...tea time in the afternoon. Not everything is sweet and romantic though, we are almost out of cat food, so there will be quick trip to the store afterwards. :0) Then back home to make homemade (hopefully heart shaped!) pizzas for dinner. What are your plans for the day?

All for Love

~Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends!~

You made a lot of lovely things. For Valentine's day I have bought some sweets for my sweets and a lovely card for my hubby ; )
Have a very happy Valentine's Day !!!

Karen said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!
We got unexpected snow last night, so we're enjoying the beauty of it, as we don't see it very often around here. We'll be making a special dinner complete with heart cookies for our special Daddy. ;o)

Judy said...

Hi Kelli,
Happy Valentine's Day to you too. I get the honors of helping in my grandson's class tody for his Valentines party.

Hi Kelli, we always have lasagna for valentines and an appropriate dessert. When the kids were little I used to dress up the table with a crocheted table cloth and red napkins and red dinnerware. I always make them a valentine card and buy them some candy to put at their place setting. It is fun. We lite candles and have a candlelight dinner as a family. The kids are older now. My youngest is going to be 15 in a couple of weeks but they still love it. Thanks for all the inspiration. Terry

Becky said...

That sounds like fun! Valentine's Day with young ones is always a good time. I love the afternoon tea idea. I may stop and drink a cup with you today.

We are doing a special dinner with steak for the meat eaters and fresh roasted veggies. Then strawberries dunked in chocolate and heart shaped cookies for dessert.

Happy Valentine's Day, Kelli.

Mommy said...

Very pretty as usual Kelli! My plans are to make the kids scrambled eggs, and then shape them into a heart using a cookie cutter. Heart shaped toast too.

Then we will be making cupcakes. Then going to Chick-Fil-A for lunch. The girls *love* Chick-fil-A. Then we will be going to vist Great Grandma, and have tea and cupcakes.

We will come home and eat Spaghetti for dinner.

Happy Valentines Day!

Susan P. said...

Wish Miss Bonnie and I could join y'all for the Valentine tea! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Sharon said...

It sounds like you have a nice day planned! We will have a normal day with lots of things to do. First thing this morning I am taking our puppy in to get spayed. My youngest son has a basketball game this afternoon and then I will make a quick, but good dinner. I bought all the kids medium sized boxes of chocolates, that is what I have done since they were little and I got my husband a huge box with a card. We are going to go out for a dinner date this weekend.

Have a happy day! :0) Sharon

Karen H. said...

Good Morning Kelli,
"HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY"!!!! Sounds like you have a good day planned for yall. Tea sounds so good. I bought some Chamomile Tea the other day at our local Dollar General Store and it is very good. When you have time, stop by. I have a Valentine's Wreath and Friendship Banner for everyone on my today's post. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours. My day will be spent with the girls. My DH is out on the road. Our oldest daughter is home sick and my Parents will come by later today to bring them a Valentine's Gift from them. Heart shaped pizza's sounds fun and yummy.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
P.S. I will be by in the morning for my Friday Show & Tell.

Just running through all of the blogs I read regularly to wish everybody a happy Valentine's Day!

Happy valentine to you!

Our plans...well since were moving next week, more than likely will be packing! But it's all good.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Your Valentine's Day sounds very "Sweet!" My hubby works split shift today (he teaches at the college) he works this morning, then again tonight, so we'll be celebrating tomorrow!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you, and the cat (who will be happy you took time to buy her food!)

Melissa E. said...

last year, out of necessity, we postponed our Valentine's Day until the 15th.

This year the kids elected to do it that way again because they cleaned up in the gifts and candy department since everything was 75% off at the stores!

So, tomorrow for lunch we will have a party!

Dani said...

Happy Valentines day, Kelli! Cat food shopping and all, I hope it's a good one.

Adrienne said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Kelli. I hope you have a wonderful day today. Your plans sound super. We are dining in and sharing dinner with my dear mother tonight. You can read a bit more about it on my blog today. ~Adrienne~

Mrs. Staggs said...

Happy Valentine's Day Kelli!

I'm getting together with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We're going out to lunch and then to do a little bit of antiquing. Later on I'll celebrate with my guys. We'll have dinner together, and exchange small gifts.

Take care.

Jodi said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Kelli! Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Kimberly said...

Sweetheart doesn't know it yet, but we are going this afternoon to renew our vows. I am soooo excited! I've also made dinner reservations at a restaurant he loves for after the ceremony.

SimpleFolk said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! It looks like you've been very busy and so festive. (Lovely projects!) No special plans for us this evening. I fixed a huge meal today at noon (complete with red velvet cake--yum!) so we're still stuffed, lol. :-)

Deb said...

Happy Hearts Day, Kelli! I had a special meal planned for tonight - my husband's favorite "Spicy Chicken over Angel Hair," but he surprised me and we went out for lunch. We are both so stuffed that I'll save the Valentine's meal until tomorrow night. But I am giving a Valentine's luncheon for friends next week and will use some of your ideas. Thanks!

TJ said...

We are having burgers tonight! Hubby's request. Kaia is so excited about her first Valentine's Day at preschool, and I think Mo will be happy to have his first dose of antibiotics tonight, although he did enjoy his Valentine's Dr visit.

wishing you all the best today!

jennifer said...

Happy V'day Kelli! Jennifer

Jessica said...

I'd like to join in and wish you a very happy Valentine's day!

To celebrate today my husband and I exchanged a little gift for each other, went out for an awesome Chinese buffet for lunch and later tonight we'll be grillin' steaks in the snow! LOL

We got another 8 inches of the fluffy white stuff yesterday so I had to once again shovel off the grill. Our neighbors will be drooling, guaranteed. What a special day.

Lori said...

Happy Valentines Day to you and your family. Sounds like you have a fun day planned.

We are either having a nice night at home together as a family.
I will make steak and baked potatoes.
Or we will go out for supper.

I sure have enjoyed your blog and getting to know you.
I wanted to let you know that a got a new job(come and check out my post) and won't be able to post nor comment as much.

I will come around and postwhen I can. I will miss you.

Happy Valentines Day Kelli. My day will be quiet. A beautiful plant from my hubby, a nice roasted chicken, and a glass of white wine. Later we will have some Chocolate Mousse and watch a little TV.

Tracy said...

I spent the day traveling the countryside with my husband. He took me to work with him today as he didn't want to be without me. :o)

We came home to a linguine dinner made by Autumn. She even baked and decorated cupcakes for dessert!

Happy Valentine's Day, Kelli!

PEA said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours, dear Kelli!! Sounds like you had a lovely day planned:-) I've been alone all day and evening so I just did some sorting out of boxes in the basement and blogged...how sad is that! lol xox

We hae had a quiet day at home.
This afternoon grandchildren Luke and Ella came over to bring homemade Valentines to us. I had cards and small gifts for them. The other two grandchildren will get theirs when they come to visit Saturday.

Perfect day--Spending time with those you love!

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Hope you had a Sweet Valentine's Day with your family! And, I hope you got the cat food. It's one of my worst nightmares in the winter to be stranded in a snow storm with 6 cats and an empty pantry! So, it's always full......just in case! HA!

((hugs)) Rosie

Hope she had a wonderful birthday and your Valentine's Day was special.
I'm sorry I'm not able to get by as often as I'd like as I enjoy each and every one of your posts.
Thank you so much for your continuing prayers for my Grandpa...
