Even before kids, Joe and I usually didn't make too big a deal about Valentine's Day. If we did celebrate we would maybe go to a nice meal a couple days before or after. No sense in dealing with the crowds on the actual day. Plus, my birthday is so close, it just doesn't make sense going overboard twice within a week of each other.
But aren't these two of the cutest Valentines that you ever did see?
And aren't they even cuter when they have just woken up and are completely surprised by their Valentine's bags from Mom and Dad, each with a small token and some candy hearts?
How about after passing out Valentines at school, coming home and sharing their loot with each other before eating themselves into a sugar coma?
We celebrated as a family by baking homemade chocolate chip cookies and eating our favorite fondue themed dinner. Yes, Valentine's Day certainly may have changed since having kids but I don't mind at all.
