Valentine's Day

Troy and I went out on a date the weekend before Valentine's Day to avoid the crowds on the actual holiday. It's getting harder and harder to squeeze in those dates amidst the boys' activities.

Nash was the only one that was assigned to decorate a Valentine's bag for his cards at home. And no project would be complete without Legos.

We started homemaking the boys' Valentine's cards years ago and even though it would be easier to pick up premade cards from Target, the tradition has stuck. We kept it simple this year and modified an idea we saw from my design company. The boys assembled 75 cards to pass out to their classmates.

Crew helped me make our traditional Valentine's Day monster cookies.

He had his own preschool party at the park while the older boys partied at school. The host had games planned but aside from eating donuts and decorating mailboxes, all the boys wanted to do was play on the playground.

We picked up some last minute balloons and items for our red and white dinner on the way home. I gathered some things from around the house in attempt to make the table a little festive before the older boys got home from school.

It didn't take long once Blake and Nash were home for their loot to cover every inch of the family room.

After running the boys to swim and baseball practices, we stayed in for our traditional candlelight red and white dinner. Pasta with red sauce, breadsticks, pink lemonade and chocolate covered strawberries. Troy didn't eat any of it of course because he's been such a stickler about tracking all of his food. We don't usually give each other gifts for Valentine's Day but I couldn't let the day pass without letting him know how great he is. I listed some things I love about him on our bathroom mirror.

I'm a lucky girl because I get to spend each Valentine's Day with not one, but five Valentines.
