Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all had a wonderful day filled with love! What a wonderful day to be with the ones you treasure most.
I love vintage Valentine cards! This was perfect for our little family this year. We celebrated Valentines together as a family Saturday and Sunday.
My honey surprised me with coral roses and a sweet card that made me cry. He always writes the sweetest love letters. I treasure every one of them and I've kept them all since we were began dating. I prepared a special dinner for when he came home from work Saturday night. Grilled pork chops with Taste of Gourmet's peach pepper pecan preserves, steamed asparagus, and red potatoes. We had pecan butter rolls for dessert. Then we exchanged cards, treats and presents.
McKinley Library had a special Valentine's event for the children where they got to color Valentines, hear stories, and make chocolate covered pretzels. They gave their pretzels to their daddy for a special Valentines treat. They also each received their own rose at the event. What a fun day together.
I'm thankful that our community provides such wonderful events for children. It was nice, not only, to have some where fun to take them, but, to give them the opportunity to make something special for their daddy. They were so proud.
Hugh decided that we were going to have a special pop corn and movie night on Sunday for our children. He even got them cotton candy and cheese pizza for our special Valentine's night. And this is the movie they chose.
It was fun! We snuggled up and spent a quiet night just the four of us. -Thank you Lord for our little family and how much they mean to me. They are the best presents I could ever ask for.

That is precious! What good memories for you and your children. I preferred our low key Valentines as well-being with the whole family was even more fun than a couple's date :)
