We had a wonderful, fun, but low-key Valentine's Day. The kids and I made their Valentine's to take to school the week before. Asher went for dinosaurs, Isaiah space ships, and Naomi had little notepads with various designs. Naomi was great and did all of hers all by herself. The boys, however, helped for about 3 seconds and then bailed. Oh well.
That morning we had pink milk to get the fun started, then the kids headed off to school for parties there. Here they are after school, examining their piles of loot. This lasted at least an hour.
I made a dinner just for Richard - lasagna and pistachio salad, then we just played together for the rest of the evening. The kids were pretty hoped up on sugar, so we mostly just let them be crazy. Here they are all piled on top of each other. See that bit of hair by Naomi's hand? That's Isaiah!
It was exactly the kind of day it was supposed to be - a day to celebrate our love for each other.
