So, I decided that our family should make this Valentine's Day about the kids and showing them extra love and attention. It's been a little difficult to spread the love around evenly with a new baby and a lack of sleep and patience, so we've set this Valentine's Day aside to make sure that Ashlyn and Breckin have a great day and that they know how much they are loved and how important they are to our family. We're going to start the day off with a little surprise. The kids are going to have two trails of Hershey's kisses leading from each of their rooms to the kitchen where they will find their Valentine's Day surprises, a stuffed kitty and giraffe and some Krabby Patty candies that they love. Then we will have heart shaped pancakes and eggs. The rest of the day will be spent playing games and having fun with the kids. No cleaning or working about chores for me tomorrow :) For dinner we are going to have crab and shrimp because the kids and Jame love crab and shrimp. We'll also have some spaghetti squash with roasted zuchinni and grape tomatoes and some of those special Red Lobster biscuits. We're going to end the day with these cool chocolate chip cookie sandwiches that I found that have marshmallow creme instead of ice cream in the middle, and some fruit dipped in chocolate. The kids have already made a dent in the strawberries that I bought so might have to get more of those. It ought to be a fun day enjoying and loving our family! On Tuesday, Jame has the day off, so Cedar was gracious enough to watch our kids for us while we go get ourselves pampered at a spa. This will be our first time ever getting professional massages, hopefully we don't get too addicted :) Then we were planning to take a little shopping trip to find a small gift for one another. It should be another good day :) I'll post pictures of our adventures later.
Here are some fun love quotes that I found:
"When you are in Love you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams." -Dr Seuss
"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world."
"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
-Franklin P. Jones
