Family Valentine's Day

We had such a fun Valentine's Day! We celebrated as family with a candle light dinner & dancing. Yes, dancing! Turns out my kiddos are into dancing. They said that eating "in the dark", their way of saying "eating by candlelight" & dancing was the best part of the night. We had homemade meatballs, pasta with Caesar Salad & everything garlic bread. Delish!
Daddy brought the girls flowers.

He also brought Mommy some flowers.

We had a "dressy, dark dinner" as the kids call it.
"Dark" meaning by candlelight. LOL.
They dress themselves, it's too cute!

We went around the table & talked about what we loved about each other.
It was hilarious. 
The boys of course said sweet things about their sisters, then said 
obnoxious things about each other.
Loving words such as farts & baseballs were used?!
Sigh...family time around the table is never dull.

Here's the dance video. 
It's a little dark due to the candlelight.
Notice the Dancing with the Stars reference...


I am praying & believing that we have made some happy memories this Valentine's Day that didn't revolve around gifts, but L-O-V-E.

    Courtney had dance at 7:15 last night so we didn't do anything special. Sad, I know.
