Did you have a Happy Valentine's Week?

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's week!  Yes, at my house this year, we didn't just celebrate Valentine's DAY, we celebrated Valentine's WEEK.  In all honesty, our celebration lasted for more than 1 day only because I couldn't seem to get my act together.

I thought I would start out the week strong with a homemade dinner (by the end of the week it was frozen pizza).  So, on Monday, it was lasagna for dinner.  I didn't take a photo, but it was beautiful... and delicious!  For dessert, I made cherry pie.  I did take a photo of the pie - It was also delicious, although it was far from beautiful! 

My husband doesn't care much for cherry pie, so I called over my cherry-pie-loving-friend to enjoy some cherry pie.  The best part was the sugar-covered top crust. For Valentine's Day, I cut a heart in the middle of the crust before it totally fell apart on me. 

It tasted much better than it looks!

Later in the week, I made some chocolate-covered strawberries.  I purchased the container of strawberries at the beginning of the week and we had been eating them all week, so there were only 6 left that got dipped in the chocolate.  They were Delicious!! These are so easy to make and so pretty, if I do say so myself!

These are so easy to make!!

A few weeks ago, my 10 year old niece, B, come over and made Valentine's Day cards with us.  We got the idea here.  We had a great time! 

It totally looks 3-D!

Her classmates were so impressed that several asked if they could have another one.  She had to set a limit of 1 per classmate! 

Al got in the action too!

Of course, Al needed a little bit of help.  You know, Al doesn't have any hands to hold onto the sucker...

Aren't they both so cute?!?
