Pre-Valentines Dinner

Some friends of ours invited our whole family over for Valentines Dinner this year. We were surprised and excited!
So, we decided to have our Valentines dinner on Sunday.
Our menu:
lobster tails and butter
Roasted potatoes, onions and peppers
Valentines punch (Sprite and food coloring)
and some delicious microwaved popcorn chicken dipped in ranch for the less distinguished eaters (namely Brandon and Alexa)
Actually, Alexa ate all her lobster. I'm sure it had something to do with the butter. I don't know what happened to Brandon. On the cruise a couple years ago he ate duck, snails, lobster. Lately, it's go-gurts and top ramen. Weird.
We had a great time eating on my Grandma Dalton's china she got in the 1920's. They are a little chipped, but we treat them so special and with love. We also pulled out the real crystal classes. For some reason no one could get the glasses to sing this time. The kids thought I switched them out for fake glasses. I'm not sure what we were doing wrong this time around!

Hey we have the same table runner! Great idea to have your dinner on Sunday! I should have done that because Mondays are too hectic.
