Valentine's Day!

Valentine's day is a definite holiday favorite of mine! I love to make a nice dinner and get out the china and crystal. In years past, I've done the crazy make everything red or pink dinners, but now I'm OK to have something nice no matter the color. (Well, we do usually have a pink drink, cause it looks pretty in the crystal glasses) I'm all about LOVE, Red, and Hearts. (I love finding heart plates) I put on my love music all day while I am getting things ready and just enjoy it. I have an amazing family and love them to pieces. For breakfast I made heart-shaped biscuits, and for dessert we made heart-shaped ice cream sandwich cookies with mint ice cream. Delicious! One thing I enjoy doing is breaking the meal into courses where we start with bread and salad, then our main dish and vegetable. (I forgot to get out the Safeway frozen peas unfortuantely for Steven and Hunter) It makes things so much more enjoyable and relaxing. I was encouraging everyone to wear pink or red for dinnner...Well, Davis just woke up so we were just glad he was happy. Steven came in wearing his suit coat looking all fabulous, so then Bracken went into his closet to pick out his suit coat so he could look just like his Dad. The pictures of Steven and Bracken we like to call "Life comes at you fast" because of their resemblence. We had a crazy photo shoot before dinner, and the rest is history.
