Valentine's Day

Happy Almost-Valentines Day! Things seem a little weird around here. I don't know if I'm just still "coming-down" from Christmas, but I got some little things to give the kids. Usually, I don't make a big production out of valentines day (being a made-up holiday & all). I figure that the kids get enough candy, etc. from school. I also HATE valentine cards. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind letting my kids participate, but they want to keep every scrap and piece of paper! I still have not figured a way to get rid of all the cards without the tantrums or taking days to toss them little by little. Anyway, enough of my rant.

This year, I got the kids a little $5 gift & a couple of candies. I also made a little card/picture for each child. I also printed one of each for Bry and got some little magnetic frames for him to take to work, so he hang them in his workspace. I would love to go out to dinner for valentines, but I just can't do it this year. It's on Saturday, and I just don't feel like dealing with the crowds of people. Besides, it gives me an excuse to spend some time with the family celebrating Allison's birthday. Now, I just have to figure out what to do.

Enjoy my little valentines.
I should probably explain that Amelia helped me pick her photos. She helped me while Allison was napping & Adelaide had fallen asleep too. When that happens, "Our house is BORING mom." She was very excited for me to email her valentine to Nana & Papa. She said, "Yeah, they can even share it with their kids." (my siblings who are 30, 29 (married), 27 (married), 25, 22 and 18)
This one seems more like an anniversary card than a valentine, but I've decided that it's pretty much the same thing when you've been married for any length of time. Besides, it's so hard to find pictures of me that I like. Looking at my wedding photos always makes me think of what we've been through together. Wow.

What beautiful pictures Miss Kimmie. You are so creative! I am so jealous! =) In a good way though. Happy "Almost" Valentine's Day to you too. I feel the same about this holiday as you do...I like it much more when my honey brings me flowers and treats for no reason other than he was thinking of me. Awww... LOL
