My Valentine's Day Brunch

As I was putzing around in my mom's storage closet a few weeks ago, I found a cache of holiday decor in the back corner still wrapped up from my parents' move a couple of years ago. As I sorted through it all, it was as if St. Valentine himself was asking me to throw a shindig in his behalf. So I sent out a handful of invitations to some of our close marrieds, ironed a few tablecloths, and washed a ton of dishes and this what it looked like when I finished. We had a lot of fun, and who knows, maybe it will be our first unique family tradition.

Menu: spinach/bacon quiche, salad with homemade almond balsamic vinagrette, vanilla yogurt parfaits with blueberries and marionberries, raspberry muffins, and orange juice/Kool-Aid/ginger ale punch and hot chocolate

Ok we look so dorky, but I thought Joshua needed to look festive, and Isaac thought if he didn't put on a red shirt, I would be angry with him, so we just look perfectly cheery here.
