My kids love Valentines Day! I think that it is mostly for the candy but, they have been doing the Valentines Day countdown for several weeks. Since Kyra is off track, her class celebrated Valentines Day on the last day of on track time. She was completely devestated when she had to miss school due to a strep throat. In her mind however, ammends would be made with our “family party.”
We had pink pancakes with pink whipped cream and strawberries and of course strawberry milk! Every year we get the kiddos something small and this year they loved it. Toad got a helium balloon that said “Toadally Awesome,” which of course popped after 30 minutes but hey, he had fun.
Then, for Harvey’s valentine, I gave the best of all man presents. I sent him to Best Buy to pick out what he wanted. I know, lame. Usually, I am more creative but, I am still pretty much a homebody for now. He loved it though and came home with Mario Cart for the WII. So, now I don’t know if I will ever see him emerge from the Man Cave downstairs.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
