Ok, not the best Valentine's Day ever. But, it's been a long time since I've had high expectations on February 14th anyway. The kids and I had fun doing V-Day things this week. Sugar cookies, making cards, having a party at playgroup and eating chocolate.
Chocolate from Mommy:
Some goodies that came in the mail this morning from the Manitoba cousins:
Erik was in bed pretty much the whole day on Saturday with a nasty cold/flu. When he emerged from his hibernation and heard about the chocolate we were enjoying, he said in a hoarse voice, "Oh. Happy Valentine's Day." Erik stayed home that evening while I took the kids to Grandpa/ma's for supper, heart-shaped jell-o jigglers and - you guessed it - more chocolate.
It's OK, hon. I know our love goes much deeper than a hallmark holiday :)
