But now that we have kids, it's all about making a fun, magical, holiday experience for every major holiday, & I have to admit I like it.
The kids wake up on Valentines morning to a small gift. This year Emry got a dozen gel pens (she wanted them) Lila got pencil toppers called 'squinkies', and Ethan got some glow in the dark stars and silly string. They also received some chocolate covered strawberries I made at a church function the night before.
Upon seeing this lego creation in his room Ethan said, "The heart is really impressive". Haha, that boy cracks me up. He is also such a love, he told me "I love you" yesterday at least 50 times.
I did set a plate for Glenn and make him some strawberries as well, and he did get me a sweet card, a chocolate bar and some spending money, Simple and perfect.
Some women may not appreciate this card, I thought it was funny.
I had bought some nice steaks to grill that night but at the last minute we decided to join our friends for Thai food. It was so good and we had such a fun night.
It ended with running to Emry's middle shcool at 10:30 pm to pick her up. She had been on a field trip since before the crack of dawn to a little place called Disneyland.
Between the little ones coming home with shoeboxes stuffed with sweet Valentines and candy, Emry's adventure and Glenn & I's night out, It was the best Valentines Day yet.
