The question this week was inquiring about our Valentine traditions. Well- we are still a fairly young family working its way through traditionalizing our traditions! I have to say I am sooooo inspired by all the loving families going whole-hog on their valentine celebrations! I’m sure in years to come we will be more creative. Last year we managed a pink cake but with the holiday falling on a weekday no such luck this year. The girls each had Valentine parties at their school and were excited to make out their Valentines for their classmates and friends. Our family and a few friends will also receive a grown-up valentine from the girls in all their hearty lovy-dovy cuteness.
So on Monday the girls went to their parties decked out in their Valentine clothes excitedly changed into from their Valentine jammies from the night before. When they came home- oh my goodness- the loot!!!! We did manage to hand out candy valentine’s but I missed the memo where the good mommies prepare homemade treats and treatbags for their young-uns buddies! The girls were thrilled and next year we will do better to reciprocate.
From us little heart baskets were prepared ala Easter Basket in style. The main treats were small mini-soccer sized balls from Old Navy that the girls have been bowling up and down our hall since they found them. Us grown-ups lucked out and got to have a nice Valentine’s lunch and Lovey is always so sweet in his sweet and treat gatherings and I was the happy receiver of some tulips and candy and cookies. He also received a heart basket with an odd assortment of goodies.
