The night before Valentine's Day the girls told me they wanted to deliver breakfast in bed to Ry and I. So, we made these fun pancakes (recipe courtesy of Aunt Cici). We set out all the toppings, etc the night before and on Valentine's Morning, Ry and I received special delivery as promised. So sweet! Here's the recipe:
1C oats
1C cottage cheese
4 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Put all ingredients in blender & blend on high until smooth. Put in hot skillet & cook like normal pancakes. Top with favorite pancake toppings.

And the Sat night before Valentine's we got to go out for dinner- wine, appetizers, main course, dessert- the whole she-bang at the Riverview Restaurant in Cold Spring. So nice! We babysat for the Kicks on Fri night while A & V went for dinner and they returned the favor the following evening. The kids had a blast with each other and it sure beats paying a babysitter. Good deal! Oh, and the cutest part of this whole ordeal was how Ellie insisted I paint my nails for Daddy- red, of course. :)
