Not much of anything

Not much to post tonight.  Even though we have birthdays and Valentine's Day in February, it still manages to be a quiet month.  Ever since working in a restaurant I don't enjoy going out to eat on Valentine's Day, so that is a day I usually make a nice meal, or we splurge for delivery.  This year I made a delish meal of chateaubriand with a port wine gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, and an array of vegetables.  I feed the kids earlier, and we had a nice peaceful meal.  Sean brought home dessert for us all.  Special cookies for the boys, cannoli's for me and Mom, and chocolate covered strawberries.  They tasted so yummy with the Verdi we were drinking.  

This weekend has been pretty busy.  I am getting ready for my baby's 3rd birthday!  I can't believe he will be 3 next week.  Gosh, I can close my eyes and see him laying on the bed in his huge hospital undershirt, just sleeping.  What a sweet boy.  We are having a big construction machine party, and he requested his machine to be orange.  So Mommy is happy to oblige and make him an orange machine cake.  It isn't quite done yet, but it looks pretty good.  I am far from being Duff, but I do pretty well, with all the extra challenges and obstacles I have.  

I'm off to bed, but I will get some photos up of the party and cake in the next few days. Until next time....
