valentine's day

Mike and I are a great match in many ways, but never is this more true than on Valentine's day. I have no real expectations for Valentine's Day. I do not require chocolate or flowers or even a card. Mike's expectations are equally as low. We do like to make things special for the girls though.

So I decorated their doors with hearts on which I had written things we love about them. I was so excited for them to see it in the morning, but they were GRUM-PEE when they got up and barely gave them a passing glance. Abby actually took one look, shrugged her shoulders and kept going. Ungrateful much? Of course then she spent the rest of the day feeling guilty for hurting my feelings.

We hit our stride by the afternoon at which point they loved the decorations on their doors. That kind of set the mood for the rest of the night. They were super cute and set the table "all fancy" with the good dishes.


Abby even dug out the red paper napkins and rolled our cutlery up in them. So cute!

Dinner was pink heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped bacon and pink juice.


For dessert there was pink cookies, chocolate hugs and kisses and a couple of heart shaped donuts that we ended up sharing between the four of us. It was pretty much a perfect evening.

How did you celebrate valentine's day?

I'm jealous! We had Em's tap class right after school, followed by a rushed dinner before we headed back out the door for swim lessons. They woke up to a little pile of treats/gifts and the rest of the day went on like any other day.

I love your heart dinner! We didn't do much, but the kids were excited to go through the cards they received from their friends.
