A day for the record books

To say we had a good Valentine's Day would be an understatement!
I got the idea at the beginning of the month to set out a jar and little pieces of paper for us all to write what we love about each other on throughout the days leading up to Feb. 14th!! I can not tell you how by thinking of one unique and utterly simple thing to do, our family dinner turned into a night to remember!!

First we started with a 'favorites' dinner... Daddy's favorite: Pesto Chicken Puffs, Little Man's favorite: Mummy Dogs, and Big Boy's favorite: BLTs
(Mommy's favorite was the wine ;))
Special surprises were waiting at their seat's... 
every boy's favorite: a t-shirt and candy!
Next we toasted our little team of 4 with some fancy drinks...

After dinner the real fun started...
We each took a turn to read a note from the jar... the boys LOVED it!! The smiles on their faces when they heard something about themselves was priceless!!! And a bit goofy too!
Who knew a simple little note, with no more than 6 or 8 words could bring so much laughter and cheer to a Tuesday night dinner!!
Even the dog got excited about the notes...
Needless to say, this will become a Valentine's Day tradition for years to come around the Lewis casa!! It goes to show you... All you need is LOVE!!

Always - Abbey

After a fun night, I got the best treat of all,
all to myself...
And yes, I like the fruit cream filled ones!!!!! ;)))
