Dinner With My Valentines

We had a fun Valentine's Day! I wrote a little about our Valentine's Day tradition at Cherish The Call yesterday. Here are some photos of my favorite little valentines, working hard on dinner. :)

Having fun together! I have no idea why that boy is holding his nose. 
Spooning the pizza sauce onto the English muffins. 

Adding the cheese....

And a little more cheese....

Everybody working together = chaotic fun!

Mr. D tried some pepperoni and discovered that, by itself, it's too spicy!

I used kitchen scissors to shape the pepperoni into hearts. Now the little pizzas are all greasy, cheesy, yummy, and ready for the oven. Healthy--no. Yummy--yes.

Flowers from Daddy, pretty candles, keepsake stemware, paper plates, and  salad dressing, aka dip, right in the bottle.  They didn't mind one bit. It was like a fairy tale to them. :) Oh...and Daddy escorted each child, (even Mr. D) to the table. But he refused to allow me to post his photo. Sigh....

We're doing a swell job teaching etiquette!
No homemade dessert this time...but the cake/cupcakes Daddy picked up suited  the kiddos just fine. :)

My sweethearts.

Our little family celebration didn't cost much, but it sure was nice, and wonderful memories were made. That's what counts. :)


  1. I LOVE to see your kids working together! I know it's not always harmony, but this shows that, in spite of Mom and Dad, they're growing up normally! LOL Seriously, this looks like a real treat for everyone, and I'm glad you shared it with us!

  2. Thanks a lot! But you're right. If they're normal it's definitely in spite of our best efforts. ;) Thanks once again for stopping by, and for your comment!

  3. How sweet! :-) I just LOVE the photos and how your children obviously had so much fun. What beautiful memories you are making together! :-)
    Loving and spending time together with family is so special. Just awesome, my friend! :-) Many blessings, Lisa

  4. Thank you, Lisa, and many blessings to you, as well! :o)
