A V-day Surprise for Daddy

Dave and I haven't celebrated Valentines Day since we were in high school. The most we ever do is I make a special dinner. This year was that much different for us except the kids wanted to surprise him. His favorite food of all is Brownies so I bought a box of Betty Crocker Fudge brownies at the store yesterday.

On Friday Susie at Susie's Homemade shared a picture of her Valentine Brownies and I told her I was going to steal the idea. See she used a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut brownies out then used a pattern and powered sugar to decorate them. Now I changed my up a little and I did cut them into heart shapes but Emma wanted to use the gel frosting pen things to decorate them.

Didn't she do a great job? I did help her and wrote the We Love You but the rest she did all by herself. I have a feeling she might be a baker when she gets older which is probably a good thing since I HATE to bake.

Anyway, the plan was to wait until after dinner and then bring the tray to Dave as a surprise but Mr. Ian man ruined that for us and told Dave that we made him brownies as soon as he walked in the door. Dave was still surprised and he loved them. In fact they were all gone by 10:30 last night. I guess they were good! :)
