We don’t usually make a huge deal out of Valentine’s Day around here. This year I wasn’t even sure if Lance was going to be home before the kids went to bed but he made it home for dinner! Before dinner the kids wanted to make some cupcakes so that is what we did. They love watching food in the oven.
Lance stopped and bought us Chick-fil-A for dinner so we decided to have a candlelit picnic in the family room. Any time I don’t have to cook or wash dishes is a huge bonus!
After dinner was bath time. I had seen a cute pin on Pinterest where the kids played with glow sticks in the bathtub. I was not sure what the kids would think but they LOVED it! Sam actually decided to bypass reading books before bed so he could play a little longer.
For their gift, we gave them the movie “Lady and the Tramp” and some M&M’s. Tonight we will be watching the movie and snacking on the M&M’s in our popcorn.
