We are not a family who usually goes all out for Valentine's day... but this year, the "holiday" kinda snuck up on us and we were not very prepared. We did not really have any gifts to give each other or the kids, but we thought fast and made due with what we had. Ryan went out and bought flowers and champagne-- which we made into mimosa with a little OJ and red food coloring--this made mama happy!!
For the kids, we we made pink pancake, cut them into hearts, wrote each kids initials in them in red frosting and viola!! Instant Valentines Day celebration!!! We even put candles in the pancakes, lit them up, and sang Happy Valentines day to you, because what kid does not like blowing out a candle!
It was a very fun evening. I think we have started a new Valentines Day tradition.
