Do you make a special dinner for valentines day? What is for dinner tonight?

I know some people don't care for valentines day. We celebrate each other every day, but I enjoy doing something special for my husband and kids. I'm always looking for a chance to do something festive. :)

So for dinner, we decided to make steak, salad, tortellini with Alfredo sauce, and Italian bread. The girls insisted on those holiday cookies you just put in the oven with the heart on them. Lol
I'm considering making a chocolate cake, since I have all the stuff, but I'm not sure yet. We will see what all I can get done!

We don't do big gifts, just a bag of each others favorite candy, but the girls like making cards and decorations for when daddy gets home. We try to make sure the house is clean too, but that is a challenge at the moment. Haha

Cole is making Rob a 'Happy Valentine's Day' hat. LOL

I bought Rob a card and we will be going out in Saturday.

We'll have spaghetti for dinner so not really special but I did by a chocolate cake. 8)

 I am making steak, lobster tails, fresh asparagus, cheese cake & some other things I haven't decided on yet.

We got the kids little gifts & I am going to try to find a comic book hubby asked for to give him. I got a love letter & a picture he drew just for me (he is an amazing artiest & love letter writer)

We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. DH left town this morning for a few days for work so he's not around. I got my 6 and 3 year olds a little something but not much.

While I was making lunch they came in the kitchen and told me they wanted to make valentine's for each other because, "I love my brother." Lol. So it looks like craft time after naps!

Sounds awesome! And the note and picture would mean more to me than any bought gift :)

 I love it when he writes me love letters. This is the second time he has drawn me a picture the first one was years ago when we where dating.
