Valentine's Day

February 14, 2009

We decided to celebrate Valentine's Day as a family which turned out to be WONDERFUL! We thought it would be nice to make it a favorite things we love day. We each picked out something that was our favorite thing to do and eat. For the food we drove around to our favorite places and got take out and took it home.

One of mine and Mike's favorite...bowling

Meara wanted to snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie.

My favorite...Olive Garden Salad

since the take out came with breadsticks we decided

to get one of our other favorites tomorrow

Red Lobster biscuits...YUMO! ;-)

Meara's favorite...Papa Murphy's Pizza
We also watched a program about Abraham Lincoln on National Geographic Channel. (He's my favorite president)
On the same day as the historic inauguration of the United States first African American president, NGC tells the fascinating story of the life of Abraham Lincoln and his struggle to abolish slavery. We'll follow Lincoln's journey from his early years as a rising politician, to his run for presidency and his fight to unite the country in the Civil War.

What a great idea to do things that you all LOVE. Maybe next year, we'll all four choose one thing each to do on Valentine's Day. Sounds fun!
