Celebrating Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is in just one week! I don't have plans for date night out. Very rarely do we ever go out on Valentine's Day. However, that doesn't mean that we don't celebrate it. Since we started our family, it has become a tradition to enjoy a special meal together at home. But, it's easy enough to make it a whole day affair...especially with kids! This year, I hope to turn it into an "I Love You Day" Celebration.

I haven't figured out all of my plans this week, but I hope to make the day special for my family in a variety of ways -- decorations, gifts, some fun and of course yummy food. If things work out, I'll be sharing some of my plans throughout the week.

One thing that I know that I will do this week is to make Valentine's cards with Ella for her class. Last year we crafted our own (shown above) using this cool Friendships Blossoms Valentine Craft from Family Fun. The results were so cute...and best of all, Ella loved making them with me. It should be a week of fun!
