The boys got special shirts for Valentine's Day. Josh's says "My Mommy Loves me!" If you are wondering about the look on his face . .. well I was standing in the way of his favorite cartoon and he was really into it!!!!
Nate's shirt says "Most eligible bachelor". When I purchase special "holiday" shirts I try to buy them one size larger so that I get two years worth of wear out of them. Granted, these are short sleeve so I may just use them for the summer instead!
For lunch we had Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches cut into hearts plus some "berries on a stick" (i.e. grapes) and chips.
The boys all got chocolate (even Darryl!) from me. They loved it. Darryl brought flowers home for me!
Dinner was our annual celebration - Spaghetti, garlic bread, asparagus!! I must confess though, for the first time in like 15 years, my home made spaghetti sauce did not turn out well. It was over seasoned, a little greasy from the meat and . .. well . . I burned it. I guess next time I need to be a little more patient with it and, well, measure.
I did actually plan to decorate heart cookies as a family after dinner but, due to the intake of chocolate (actually, my kids have pretty good self-control . .. a few bites and they were done) we decided to hold off on more sweets and we'll do the cookies a different night. Plus, I also had some things for them to color but the boys were having so much fun just playing this afternoon, I decided to not get that stuff out either!
I hope you enjoyed your day! Now, time to start thinking about St. Patrick's Day and deciding if I will actually cook Corned Beef and Cabbage again HA!
