Valentine's Day

Despite the fact that I woke up with a nasty head cold which has progressively gotten worse as the day wore on, it was a very nice Valentine's Day.  We decided to stick with what we started last year and make it a day to not only celebrate our love for each other, but for our children as well.  We included them in the festivities.

I made a special dinner.

 ♥ Menu

Butternut Squash Soup
Garlic-rosemary Crusted Pork Loin
Homemade Dinner Rolls
Twice Baked Creamy Stuffed Potatoes

 I decorated the table and the kids enjoyed looking at photos from our wedding.

We gave the kids some candy and a card.  I made Dan a tie and some homemade candy and he gave me some tea from my favorite company and a candle.

It was a simple way to celebrate but still very nice and something that everyone looked forward to all day.
