Call us boring or too practical or unromantic but we really don't do much to celebrate Valentine's Day. Perhaps it's because our anniversary is less than a month away. We try to enjoy date nights several times of year (and at least a couple at nicer restaurants) and I guess it just doesn't appeal to go out on the busiest weekend of the year. Often I cook a nice meal to be enjoyed after the kids are in bed, Andrew often suprises me with a sweet card or beautiful flowers but really, it's just not that important to us.
And so, I find myself at a loss. The boys are getting to an age that they understand holidays. They had a party at school and they know it's Valentine's Day. I feel we should do something for them to make that day special, but I'm not sure what. What do you do (if anything) to celebrate with your kids? Any ideas? We are making Valentine cookies and crafts today but I'm thinking of something special for the actual day.
I'm really not "bah humbug" about Valentine's Day, I enjoyed hosting a kids' party a c0uple of years ago and I do love my husband. :) We just really don't make it a big deal - if we celebrate, fine; if not, that's okay, too.
On another topic, I'm so excited that the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics are tonight! We are planning to let the boys stay up to see Kazakhstan come in with the parade of countries! What fun!
