When I got Emme out of bed yesterday morning, she was greeted by Valentines from her mama on her bedroom door, and a Valentine from her dada on the kitchen counter.
The Valentine from dad had a note to Emme, a note to Henry and a note to mama inside. It was so sweet that it made me cry as I was reading it out loud.
In keeping with tradition, we had our annual Valentines Day family dinner by candle light last night. Emme was thoroughly intrigued by the candles, and requested to blow them out and re-light them numerous times, to which her loving daddy obliged.
This year we had steak pinwheels, stuffed with blue cheese, spinach & olives, BLT pasta, asparagus and fruit. It was yummy! Even Emme liked the "spaghetti." Win-win.
Henry enjoyed the meal too...just a few hours later than the rest of us. :)
Later, Emme got a Valentines day present from mom & dad (a bracelet engraved with "I love you to the moon and back"), and a present from Henry (a harmonica). The harmonica was definitely the hit of the evening. Who knew, right? What a fun day!
