The sparkling cider my hubby and I drank from the toasting glasses we used when we got married (almost 10 years ago!!!)
Our table set up. Yes, I used paper plates, and I wrote messages to each of the kids and the hubby on the back of the plates. My hubby's said: "Happy Commercialized Holiday to the best husband a girl could ever have." My daughter's said "Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite five year old girl. I love you to the moon and back." My son's said "Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite three year old boy. I love you to infinity and beyond."
The kids wine glasses with their grape juice.
I'm really bummed that I wasn't able to get any decent photos of my kids enjoying our celebration, but the lighting was so low, and they kept moving, so I wasn't able to get anything salvageable without using my flash, and that just wasn't what I was looking for. Oh, well. C'est la vie.
And a few weeks ago I went out around sunset, drove to the top of the hill near my house and snapped some photos. The sky wasn't as glorious as it is on other nights, but I managed a couple of decent photos.
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's day with your families, and that you have managed to throw something special into your days as a way to honor little Logan and all the others whose lives are cut too short.
