Mommy Moments--Valentine's Day 2011

Wakaba and Haruka are so sweet to spend their allowance to buy for chocolates to their Daddy as a present during the Valentine's Day of last year but this time they wanted to bake some homemade chocolate muffin as a surprise Valentine gift. I guess some of you here already know that celebrating Valentine's Day in Japan is way different from the west and some other countries. It is only the women who gives presents ( mainly chocolate ) to the men and men, who received chocolate on Valentine's Day should return the favor on White Day, March 14.

Well anyway, when my girls told me 'bout the idea, I have to request their Dad to go somewhere before the big day for 2 to 3 hours so we can bake the surprise gift for him and when he asked me why, I just winked at him and he got my message^_^ But their Dad is a teaser, he acted that he was leaving the house but went back to chek out--you should see my girls reaction, they're like "w-w-wwe we're not doing anything strange! " lol! I cracked up when I saw their facial reaction and so is my husband! \(^0^)/
I supported my kids baking their homemade goodies--Wakaba is in charge of measuring the ingredients while Haruka is in charge of the sifting and while Wakaba is mixing the batter, Haruka holds the mixing bowl. I love the teamwork while listening to their arguments in between lol!
BeforeAfter-- cooling the chocolate muffin
I let them do the decorations of the muffin on their own--I made one for me too and ate 'em afterwards lol!

Happy Valentine's Day, Daddy!!

Oh your daughters are so thoughtful to their dad. I became teary eyed when I read your post because of the great love you have for one another. Blessed is the family who is united in love and thoughtfulness. Your hubby must have been so delighted to have received such wonderful gifts made out of the labor of love from your kids. You are a wonderful parent to have brought up your kids to be like that. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
