Red and Pink - Kisses and Hugs!

Valentines Dinner Party
If you have been following our blog for more than year, than you know 
our Valentines Tradition. 
For those of you, that have joined us more recently - let me give you a quick run down...

We decorate the dining room with red and pink stuff.

The girls have been making tons (and I mean TONS) of Fun-fusion. They used the hearts to decorate the table along with some candy hearts.
 

Our dinner is red and pink.
This year we had Chicken Bruschetta. YUM!
Raspberry juice, Pink Salad and a green salad with Craisins.  
First, we grilled the chicken.

Then, we topped it with yummy bruschetta stuff.

This is the whole crew ready to eat


I did not take this picture (obviously). It had some major issues. This was the best I could do to make it somewhat presentable.
A for effort.




This year the gifts had the theme of "painting" (except Caleb's).
 Caleb got a small first-aid kit for his  hunting-pack. The older kids got Paint-by-Number and the younger ones got ceramic figurines to paint. Tessa got her very most wanted gift - a PINK teddy bear. (she has been requesting one since Christmas)
Meet Rosy

Brian got his absolute favorite treat - Chocolate Covered Cherries.
I received cards from the children.
And this poem from Brian

A Poem For My Ash

Yarrow is white
Sage is green
but you are the prettiest thing
I've ever seen.

Cute as a button
and sassy as ever,
but trade you in
I would never!

You're the wind in my sail
and the Queen of my Castle
If it weren't for you
I'd have no one to "wrastle".

Each passing year 
gets better it seems
when I'm living with 
the girl of my dreams.

Love You!

Love it!!! The poem is so sweet and cute. I had to read it to my hubby. My boys laughed and started making up a poem too.

1. I'm going to make chicken & bruschetta together now. My mouth is watering after seeing those pics!

2. Brian's poem was fantastic! I loved the lines about not trading you in and having no one to wrastle!
