When I think of Valentine's Day I think of having a very nice meal at home or with friends - going out to a restuarant is just way too crowded; although we did go to a nice Peruvian restuarant in Kirkland last year (that is now closed).
Back on track - - this morning we woke up and I thought Crepes - so I made the batter and Joe made delicious crab filled crepes with Mornay sauce for breakfast. As I was cleaning up the kitchen we had a lovely surprise visit from Simon, Rebekah, Chris, & Levi (sleeping in car) Gough. Simon brought us Valentine heart shaped brownies. Too cute. There were 3 and Joe asked Simon if it was OK if he ate two, and I could have one. He shot his fist in the air and shouted, Yeah, right. Too cute.
I'll give you a hint, it was a 50th birthday celebration for Ginny; and the bonus was getting to see my cousin Dan & his family (daughter Sarah and wife Carol). Dan had just returned from helping build a 4 room house in Haiti with his son Gregory. We also enjoyed celebrating Jeff's 29th birthday and welcoming his newest nephew Miles to the family. Miles was born yesterday and came straight from the hospital to his Uncle Jeff's birthday brunch. What a great weekend; hope yours was great too.
