Katie helped with the Salmon with Champagne & Raspberries (one of our favorites from Gunflint Lodge) and Fresh Asparagus; Kelsey and Aiden helped with the Valentine Cupcakes, Melissa learned to make her first Texas Sheet Cake. Emily and Adam were on hand to help with the Valentine Brownies. Is there a better way to celebrate than with champagne, chocolate and raspberries? Good thing that I bought four pints of fresh beautiful raspberries - our grandbabies gobbled up every berry we didn't cook with!
Aiden was so excited to celebrate his first Valentine's Day party, working so hard to write his name and put together valentine treats for all of his three-year-old friends.
It was so nice to have long days to relax, cook and snap some photos. It snowed every day this weekend - beautiful, fluffy, shiny snowflakes that tumbled from the sky. And in the mornings, some warm and wonderful Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake and coffee. We had relaxing family dinners every night and shared lots of memories, laughter and love - a perfect Valentine celebration. Hope you love our favorites as much as we did!
