Valentine's Day

Our first Valentine's Day in Ireland was so sweet! It was nice to get all into the holidays again! We are finally settled and I wanted to do everything that I had done for the kids when they were little. We started with a family breakfast. Which included heart shape pancakes and eggs and a box of chocolates for Taylor & Caoimhe. Jack was not left out of the festivities, he received heart shaped treats for his breakfast.

Jack's Treats

I then made a special dinner for the kids which included steak pie(it is a lot like beef pot pie without the veggies) and homemade southern mac & cheese.  For dessert they wanted Rice Krispies Treats, so instead of using my regular pan  I spruced up it for the love day.

Then  after they had their dinner,  they camped out in Taylor's room and watched movies while Steve and I had our dinner and a movie together.  We had steaks, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, rolls, and cheesecake for dessert.  We had candles lit along with a nice fire. It was the best night! I love that man!

Here is a few pics of us then and now after 16 Valentine's Days together!

Caoimhe told me after I had set up the living room for Steve and I's meal. and movie, she said, " it is all romantical in here!" I loved it! She will remember this and that makes me excited that she sees the love between her mom and dad! 
All in all it was great day and not least I was reminded that God's love for me is the greatest of all! He loved me enough that he sent His son to die for me! Thank you Jesus! John 3:16 <3
