Valentine's Day 2015

We began celebrating Love Day early with a Homeschool Breakfast Party planned and hosted by Flynn. : ) She helped me decorate and bake early Friday morning while the big kids were still fast asleep.

There were homemade chocolate chip muffins and bought by Steve Dunkin Donuts. And strawberries, of course. : )

Friday night we had a special bedtime story. : )
By the way...We love all the "Night Before books...They have them for almost every holiday.
Yay Amazon!

Valentine's Day was snowy and COLD! WE had a quiet day before getting ready and heading out to Mass...

dressed in our Valentine red...
and Rhett would not normally wear that shirt to Mass. But he was serving, so he wore a robe. : )

My teens. : )

Dinner was yummy...Three Cheese Stuffed Shells and garlic toast....

and dessert? Dessert was divine. : )

There were gifts and chocolates mixed in as well. And that is a wrap on Valentine's Day 2015. Bring on Mardi Gras. And Chinese New Year too. : )

  11. Hi Billie Jo,
    I'm so glad you came over and introduced yourself. Your children are just beautiful! And that Valentines dinner looks so good! You are only the second Billie Jo I've seen.
