For our children’s sake, I decided to embrace Valentine’s Day this year.
Monday we made our Strings of Hearts and hung them from the chandelier in the dining room.
While we already bought candy valentines for the girls to hand out to their friends, they still wanted to design handmade ones.
I found this cake mix at Dollar Tree so we baked and decorated cupcakes last night.
I plan to surprise the girls tomorrow morning by decorating the dining room table for breakfast. I bought paper goods and table decorations (once again, at Dollar Tree).
Our one Valentine’s Day tradition is that my husband gives each of our daughters a heart-shaped box of chocolates. The girls look forward to this special treat!
Tomorrow night the four of us will be eating a Valentine’s meal together at home. The menu is Cajun Chicken Pasta, Green Beans, Garlic Bread, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake. (Yes, we’ll be consuming a lot more sugar than usual this week!)
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids?
