I love Valentine's Day. I love holidays in general though. :) I love giving people things to make their days brighter or put a smile on their face. I have big plans for our kids today. We are going to be making strawberry flavored Rice Krispie Bars, brownies with pink icing and some sugar cookies! Then for dinner we are going to have a Valentine's Day tradition, Buttermilk Pancakes topped with fruit and whipped cream. The kids love it and so do I. My mom used to make it for us when we were kids and it was just one of those simple things that I wanted to do to make our day just a little more special.
By the time Hubby gets home from work I plan to have this house full of pink and red construction paper hearts that the kids have made. Here's to hoping at least!
Hubby is leaving for four days and so we won't get to celebrate Valentine's Day tonight but we will get to this weekend. We are heading out for an overnight away from the kids. We will then get to celebrate Hubby's Birthday (yesterday), Valentine's Day (today) and my birthday (the 23rd). It will be good to get away and just relax. We will of course miss our kids like crazy but we feel that it is important every now and then to get away and remember why we married each other. We don't want to wake up one day wondering why there is this strange person lying next to us in bed.
At any rate, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! What are you doing to make today special for you and your hubby/spouse/significant other and/or your kids?
