Z had many plans for making the party wonderful. He spent one evening making hearts and Valentines which we hung from our dining room fan. He had a great idea of making a valentine shield for Jackson. Imagine Captain America's shield in the shape of a heart. That's exactly what Z wanted. For the fighting the two of them would do at the party, of course.
I made a strawberry cake FROM SCRATCH! Wow, it is a lot of work to make a cake from scratch. It did taste awesome, if I do say it myself, however, I'm pretty convinced that a box cake with the homemade frosting is really the way to go. You save a bunch of time with the box, but the frosting still looks and tastes fantastic, and nothing like what you get in a can. We also had pizza and chocolate hearts and the most unusual Valentine party I've ever attended (which isn't that many). It might also have been the most fun Valentine party I've attended. See for yourself:

|Eden disdained the cake and just ate icecream.|
|We thought Jackson's shirt was very funny, and so did he!|
|Yummy cake! Z saved all the frosting for last.|
