Happy day of love to all my peeps!
I love Valentines day. To me its a day to do something fun for my family that will give them fun memories for years to come. Since we moved into this house 5 years ago, I have had a Valentines party for the fam. This morning I made breakfast ( um, yeah, I don't usually do that!) and everyone opened their gifts. I love buying gifts for Valentines. Everybody gets something they wouldn't normally get in the middle of Febuary! Stacy got a new and improved coffee grinder and a bag of dark chocolate. Logan got Zoo Tychoon for his computer and a box of chocoloate. Lana got Hannah Montana Pj's and a container of kisses.
I also get everybody a card and write nice stuff about them in it. I save all of our Valentine cards and I think it will be fun in years to come to go back and read them.
So yes, while Valentines may be an over commercialized excuse for feeding the economy, I enjoy it because it's a day that is special in my family and a day that I think the kids will always grow up remembering as such.
Oh, and what did I get? Well Logan got me red Tulips and Lana got me a chocoalate rose.
Stacy...well he fills a little overwhelmed by the whole Valentines thing. We're going on a date tomorrow night though! Yeah for dates and for Marmi coming to watch the kids!
Now off to childrens theater for "Tom Sawyer".
Happy Valentines day friends. I am sending you all virtual roses, hugs, and chocolates!
