Valentine's Day

After church I sent the kids downstairs so that I could get dinner and everything ready! It was fast Sunday today and I didn't want to take a lot of time preparing dinner so I picked up a heart shaped pizza last night.
I made Rich take a picture with me, he is getting really sick of me always taking pictures of us but one day he will thank me for it!!
Here is our dinner, I might have to do this more often, it is nice to not have to worry about making dinner after church (especially when we get out at 4pm)!!!
I wanted dinner to be special so I decided to do candlelight and eat in the living room at a table, to mix it up a little! I got everyone a little valentine box with teats in it and we had sparkling cider in fancy (plastic) heart glasses. I thought the table looked fantastic and I was excited for the kids to see it!
I let them upstairs when everything was ready and all the lights were off and the candles were lit. Alex was really impressed and I think Alexa thought it was kind of weird but I think she liked it. We ate all the food and went through 3 bottles of the sparkling cider. It was a great time and I think it is something we will need to do again.
After dinner we gave the kids a valentine and then me and Rich exchanged gifts. Somehow I only got a picture of Max and his elephant. Alex got a panda bear that makes sounds, Alexa got a new bag that she was dying for. Rich gave me the cutest boots and 2 rings and I gave Rich a couple new shirts and a little photo book I made for him with pictures of us over the past 6 years!!! I really enjoyed this season of love, can't wait for next year!!
