With two kids around these days, Valentine's Day is not the romantic holiday for us that others may have. And for us, it's perfect. Husband and I aren't really into Valentine's Day but we do make a point to show a little extra love that day. (I don't expect 1,000 like Kim Kardashian!) I started out the day by making some heart-shaped blackberry pancakes (which Brayden didn't like) and enjoying my beautiful flowers! Husband got a bouquet for me and one for Madison...teaching her early how a man should treat her!
Next up was presents. We didn't get anything for the kids because my cousin sent them books and their Sittie sent a package of goodies. The kids don't eat candy and have PLENTY of toys so I figured it was best to just stick with the presents they already had. I will eventually do small presents for them like my mom always did for us (socks, nail polish, stickers, beads, hair stuff, etc.) but for now, I think the presents would just be another thing around the house that doesn't get played with.
It was such a great Valentine's Day...I wouldn't have it any other way!
