So, clearly, I have had this post pending for a while... I finally got my camera pictures uploaded, so here you are!!
Valentines Day has always been a special holiday for me. DH and I had our "first kiss" on Valentine's Day, 1998. Awwwww... but most years, to be honest, it is just another day for us. In the past several years, I usually work evening shift on most holidays. But this year, was much different. I finally work mostly days, and can enjoy the afternoons home with the family. I'm trying to focus more on family, and creating meaningful memories and traditions with my children. SO WE DID IT UP this Valentine's Day!
I know, I know... Valentine's Day is a commercial holiday, blah blah blah. Of course, we celebrate love in our home everyday, not just this one special day a year. But, it is still FUN to celebrate love, hearts, pretty things, and even flowers, on Valentine's Day, which is already a special anniversary for Bob and I.
My favorite flower is tulips, so Bob surprised me with 20 some tulips!
For dinner, I decorated the table in all sorts of lovey things. Things that make you say "Awwwww!"
We made heart shaped home-made pizzas, one for each of the kids, and Bob and I shared one. Then we finished up with cupcakes. Of course, store bought cupcakes. With all the sickness in our house, and working everyday, there was no time to make cupcakes! But, they were still pretty delicious! Andrew ate the frosting off of 4 of them, LOL!
