This year had a rather low-key Valentine's celebration. Having been on virtual house arrest for the past few weeks meant that I was unable to buy valentines, any valentine treats, or plan any fun activities. And today was a bit of a tricky day with all 5 kids at home, so needless to say, the love could have been felt just a little more. But we did do a few fun things, though I didn't take any pictures. The babies wore their "I <3 Mommy" outfits, and I made Charlie and Liv a special Valentine's Day lunch...heart shaped cheese and PB&J sandwiches. I also tried this fun idea I saw on Pinterest. The milk cube turns the milk pink as it melts.
We also attempted a heart shaped cake with a marbleized look made with red food coloring. Unfortunately, when I wasn't looking Charlie decided we needed more food coloring and dumped in about 1/4 of the bottle. I gave it a shot anyway, but once it had cooled it simply fell apart.
Gammy came over in the evening to watch the babies while Eli and I took Charlie and Liv to Cici's pizza for a special Valentine's date night. After eating, we played a racing game in the arcade there. It really was a lot of fun! I just love my family so much.
Happy Valentine's Day!
P.S. This was the post for Valetine's Day last year. Little did we know. :)
