Valentine's Day 2011

Valentine's Day 2011 was a fun time for the Shanks. Chris & I were able to go on a date the Saturday before, and then our family celebrated on Monday. Here are some pictures, in no particular order.

Ellie waiting to eat our Valentine dinner. Notice she has no nice china! :)

Katie had a meltdown episode when her Fun Dip was thrown away before she felt she was through with it!

Valentine's Day dinner was eaten in the dining room on some of the good dishes. (Doesn't happen too often!) Katie was really nervous about using the nice glass, so she opted to get one of her plastic ones! LOL

The girls made some sweet cards this year!
Katie's card for Chris, made with duct tape, cracked us up!

Doesn't every little girl love a balloon?!
These pictures are way out of order, but here are pictures from Chris & mine's date the Saturday before Valentine's Day. After dinner, we visited Starbucks & Crave Cupcakes. Yummy!!! We had never tried this cupcake place before, and it was really good!

This was MY Valentine treat from Chris. :)

We ate at a place in downtown Houston called Sambuca. I had salmon.

Chris had steak. He said it was possibly the best steak he's ever had, and that's saying a lot given how much he likes Taste of Texas!
Me & my Valentine!
