Welcome to our family
The funnest part about this
tablescape is that HUBBY

Years ago in our home, our 5 children
decided Valentine's Day should
have something in it for them so

oh so manly!
The women got a more romantic looking

bring theirs on their own tray.
And one other great treat was
catching my newest son in law
Thanks everyone for making
it a wonderful
