Happy White Valentine's Day!

I know I said today's blog would be all about puppy pictures but I forgot that today is Valentine's Day so I will have to make tomorrow puppy picture day. Today is WHITE VALENTINE'S DAY because IT IS SNOWING! Honest to goodness REAL snow.  Not even a whisper of snow but a veritable snowfall!  Oh my gosh - I feel like putting on my snowsuit and dancing out in the snow. If my ankle were better, I would be outside sledding! It is so beautiful outside.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I had our morning coffee together and just sat in front of the window and watched the snowfall. It was so lovely.  We had the really big snowflakes falling from the sky.  Everything is white and I just love that.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres has been calling it our White Valentine's Day. I have been enjoying every minute of it, from the soft beauty of the fresh fallen snow to the crazy antics of our doodle doggies running around tunneling through the snow making doggie snow angels.  It is the real winter day we all have waited for. My older daughter has been asking how much snow, how much snow? She wants to be home to play outside in the snow with the doggies.  I told her they wished she were home to play and make snowmen with them. This is what it looks like here at Yesteryear Acres out our backdoor -
We had great big snowflakes falling pretty much all day long. I know I am in the minority - but I LOVE SNOW!  I LOVE IT.  Everything is so beautiful.
I hope it snows the rest of the day! Mr. Yesteryear Acres wanted to be sure to make my Happy Snowy White Valentine's Day even more perfect and brought home....
I was SO surprised!  I got a big box of chocolates too!  Oh my gosh!  If I say that this is our 27th Valentine's Day together - does that make me sound old? I have to say that in 27 Valentine Days of celebration there have not been many filled with flowers and chocolates so I was SUPER surprised.  I immediately texted my 2 daughters to tell them and they were even more surprised than I was!  I got a lot of heart texts and OMG DADDY! When I told Mr. Yesteryear Acres how surprised we all were - he was surprised.  He seems to think he does that all the time. And then he sat and thought.  And thought. And thought. And yes - well it was a long time and it was surprising! LOL.  Time has a way of kind of marching on - and we usually just say Happy Valentine's Day and have a normal day. I mean we are sincere and really appreciate the day and love spending the day together - but there isn't a lot of fanfare. Flowers and Chocolates? Oh yes please!!! So since Mr. Yesteryear Acres is now Mr. Valentines..... I decided to return the favor.  I got dressed up in my nice red dress that I got for Christmas and have been making a homemade Valentine's dinner.  I have my homemade soup simmering on the stove, I have homemade rolls rising in the oven and am in the process of making parfaits for dessert and am even cutting out little heart marshmallows for the top. I guess I will be Mrs. Valentines for the day! Happy White Valentine's Day! Hope your day is one full of love!
