Valentine's at our House

Today was just an unbelievable amount of fun here at our place. Last year I made the girls special chocolate chip muffins in heart shaped dishes. They were hoping for the same this year and I did not disappoint! We also get them each a small gift and I set it up with their muffin on the table. They were so excited when they went to bed last night that they got up, put in ponytails and changed into Valentine's clothes! And they kept calling yesterday Valentine's Eve. This morning they woke up to their heart shaped muffin and we got the Hippie a Littlest Pet Shop toy and the Genius some bracelets and a little wallet. They LOVED it! Plus we made them cards, they got packages from Nana and Gampy and some cards from their other grandparents! A week or so ago for their craft time they had made Valentine's for us and each other. They kept them hidden this WHOLE time and they were bursting to hand out their homemade cards. It was so sweet! My husband said, "I feel like I am living in a Hallmark commercial." LOL! We went to church and on the way there they were BOTH talking at the same time the ENTIRE way there! After church we went to lunch, the grocery and washed the van. Tonight for my hubby's gift I let him plan the menu and I cooked it. So we continued the celebrating with steak, homemade mashed potatoes and chocolate cake. It was a hit! I hope everyone else is having a wonderful Valentine's too! Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh dear ... I believe I've been a failure as an aunt yet again. :) I just have never become accustomed to remembering any holidays beyond Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. And only one of those requires cards. :) I'm glad SOME of the family thought to do something. :)

You guys are like a Hallmark commercial! ;) But that's what makes y'all so sweet and cute! :)We didn't do much, lunch out after Church and I got Chuck a little something and then he took my car to get the oil changed, washed, and filled with gas so that I didn't have to go with the kiddos! But we don't really celebrate the holiday!

Stepahnie - I like having a date with Cliff but we don't exchange cards etc.... He did buy me a box of Andes Mints though! LOL! Usually we just try and do something special...like Chuck getting the oil changed for you or me making him the dinner of his choice. I would HATE getting flowers on such an expected day unless he were deployed. Hope you are having a better day!

Trinka - You talked to the Genius on the phone and that made her happy!
