Did everyone have a good Valentine's Day? Valentine's is not a HUGE deal at our house. I do not expect flowers and presents, etc. I do not expect a date, although I did just have a weekend away with my Hubby so my date was kind of all weekend long this year.
Because I wasn't working today, I decided that I would get up early and cook a good breakfast for my family for Valentine's Day. I made bacon (fried in the pan, NOT microwaved), scrambled eggs and my favorite buttermilk pancakes with pecans added for Hubby. So, were my kiddos excited? Well, my little one got up and said, "Um, no......I want a muffin please." WHAT?!? You want a Little Debbie muffin over real breakfast? ugh! KIDS! And, I'm mean, so I totally made her eat eggs, bacon and pancakes.
This is what the kids found at their place at the table this morning. Valentine's plates and cups filled with candy. All but L's were filled with chocolate. L doesn't like chocolate (I still can't believe he's mine and doesn't eat chocolate - WEIRD!). The gift bags were from my mom. They were filled with treats too.
It was a day filled with field trips and school parties and Valentine's crafts.
Tonight I decided to make one of our favorite dinners. You see, the first meal Hubby ever cooked for me was Chicken Fettucine Alfredo. He also made it for me the night he proposed. So, I thought I would make it for him for Valentine's Day. MMMM! Throw in a salad and you've got a great meal! Seriously, you must try it. You will NEVER eat it at a restaurant again. Homemade is soooo much better!
Well, it's almost time to put the kids to bed. Then Hubby and I can have dessert. I have chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge, hidden from the kids. Happy Valentine's Day to us!
So, what did y'all do today? Anything special?
