The celebration of Valentine's Day is different every year -- depending on opportunities, health, time, and life in general. This year circumstances aligned and there were many celebrations! Here are a few pictures:
I had so much fun collecting ideas on Pinterest. I picked out four different valentines for the kids to make. Rachel got to make candy roses:
Andrew made arrows:
The meal was delicious: roast beef, potatoes, green beans and salad. I had no dried cranberries left for the green beans but found a little bag of frozen red currants in my freezer, picked from our bush this past summer. They were perfect! I can't wait to recreate this dish again.
And along matters of the hearts.....Laura had a great report from her cardiologist this morning! She did not even require an echo and can have another appointment in 6-9 months! YAY!
More pictures to come.......
