Valentine's Day

"I am so excited for Valentine's Day!  That is when we get a lot of chocolate!"
Ivory is running through the house wearing a blanket, coat, shoes and an umbrella: her version of Mary Poppins.
"Oh really?"  I had not even thought of buying chocolate, and I know for certain I have no chocolate hiding anywhere in the house.

I hope that if I just don't mention it, she will forget about all that chocolate she thinks she will be getting.

Instead we have focused on making something for others.
The kids and I baked a pie crust before Adam even crawled out of bed.


And throughout the day we finished the filling, let it cool and now it is tucked away on the bottom shelf of the fridge.



One flakey pie crust with a quick cheese cake filling...  I can't wait until Ivory pulls it out of the fridge and gives it to her dad.

Happy Valentine's Day!
