A very special Valentines night

Cal and I celebrated Valentine's Day last night- Cal is on call today on Vday. Here are a few pics from the night:

This is Cal's little setup of presents from me- the flowers in the picture are from my student teacher Ale' to me (how sweet is that!). The dog in the pic came from a student to me yesterday and ended up becoming one of Ava's new favorite toys- I am posting the video of her obsession with it at the end of this post! ha!

This was Cal's main present from me: we are slowly collecting things for Cal's office one day: (I thought it would match the duck hunting theme that I know the office will have... haha)

This was my little spread of presents from Cal- I will definately be reading my present this weekend- the LAST Twilight book- SOOOO sad- I can't believe I'm about to be through with the whole series!!! (Ale'- I hit the nail right on the head didn't I??...haha- I can't wait to see what Alex did for you!!!)

Cal and I cooked out steaks from Mr. P's deli (the best filet in the USA- i swear!) we also had sweet potatoes, brocoli and cheese casserole, and yummy rolls. And for desert......this is what we had...

O.K.- there is a perfectly good reason that this nasty- cheap bottle of Andre' pink champagne is sitting on my kitchen counter. Some of you that are reading this already know this story- but for those of you that don't- here goes: On our very first date- Cal called me and said."What do you want to eat tonight, and what can I pick you up to drink?". Well, my response was this, "Why don't we just pick up Abner's chicken, and I would like Andre' pink champagne." (yes- i had very poor taste at the time ha) So- My, ummm, how should I say this???..... "very frugal" husband instantly fell in love with me. He was VERY excited about the cheap dinner and 3$ bottle of champagne..hahaha! So- we kicked it up a notch last night and poured ourselves a glass of Andre' pink champagne for old times sake.

and chocolate covered strawberries...

...and here we are with our little desert!!! :)
After our dinner and desert- we watched the movie "Fireproof"- a very powerful movie! If you haven't seen it- GO get it NOW!!!! It was wonderful!
As promised- here is a video of Ava and her new toy- which she will now not let out of her sight- haha- she is hillarious!

I LOVED Fireproof! We watched it a couple of weeks ago. I think about it everyday, especially if I'm feeling the need to say something negative. I just bite my tongue and move on. So inspirational!
