At my place I found the items pictured above. The day before the 3 older kids had all secluded themselves in the girls closet and made these. It was very sweet!
On Thursday morning I helped Ken out at his office while the kids stayed at my parents. It was fun because although we don't get to spend the whole time visiting it is fun to be able to work side by side. We thought about going out for lunch but Ken had a lunch meeting that he needed to attend. The kids and I ended up eating a very yummy lunch of fried fish at my parents.
We decided to have supper at home. The above picture is of our table. We put on a fancy table cloth (my Grandma on my Mom's side made this for our wedding gift. There are over 30 cousins on that side and she is making one for each one!!) I put some heart shaped tins and boxes in the middle of the table and then added some candles. We set the table with red and white plates and then folded some red napkins that we had to make it look fancy.
For our supper I wasn't feeling like cooking gourmet (I don't usually!) and we just had ham, homemade scalloped potatoes and salad. I did come up with the idea to cut the ham into hearts which was a big hit.
For dessert I made cheesecake with raspberry sauce. It was quite yummy! The texture was a little different though, not so smooth. I think it was becuase I used Neufchatel Cheese which had been frozen. I don't know for sure, what do you think?
(I was planning on sharing the recipe but I am having trouble with the line spacing (in case you didn't realize I have my share of troubles on the computer, I am just beginning to really know how to use theses things!) and the recipes was looking really funny. For my cheese cake crust I use whole wheat flour instead of grahm crackers. If anybody would like the recipe I will try to post it later.)
