This past Friday night was the Valentine’s dance at X’s school. His teacher has a dj business, so she was there on the “wheels of steel” pouring out the tunes for everyone to dance to. X had absolutely no interest in dancing so he hung out in the hallway playing with some friends he ran into. The girls were to be accompanied by their fathers for “daddy daughter dancing”…ooooooooooooooooooh, it was so much fun! C danced all night long. She danced with mom, dad, abuela, nana and Brooke. They had a dance competition that she and dad participated in. They made it to the second round. She had the time of her life! She loves, loves, loves to dance! M had fallen asleep on the way to the school so she sat quietly by and watched all of the goings on. The school has a dance once a year and we have gone before, but this one really took the cake. We had so much fun dancing the night away. Needless to say, the moment we got home C went to lay down in bed and was snoring just as soon as her head hit the pillow.
Valentine’s night we spent at home. Germaine and I had thought about going out to dinner but it’s a hard night to find a sitter, so we dined at home. The girls and I went to Central Market and loaded up on goodies for the nights fare. Dinner consisted of: shrimp cocktail, marinated mozzarella, french bread, california rolls, baked potatoes, fresh veggies, crab cakes, ribeye steaks and fresh fruit. I don’t know that we’ve ever had such a wonderful meal. The girls and I decorated the table with a pink tablecloth, tulle, and lots of little heart shaped candies. I cut out little hearts for each of the kids and wrote a message for each of them and put it on their plates along with a small gift. Germaine and I exchanged cards and small gifts as well. All in all it was a really nice night and a happy valentine’s day for all!
