Valentine's Schmalentine's

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.

Playgroup party:


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 :)

Amen to Mom that!! I gave dad a card, and when I asked where mine was, he said;"i gave you the trip'. We did go to a fundraiser in Killarney and had a good supper, and a great comedian.

You're funny, Jamie! I have definitely lowered my expectations about V-day too! It's not what it once was when we were dating, is it? However, I'm holding out for Dan. His dad is pretty romantic now in his 50s. I don't know what your father-in-law is like in that department, but maybe there's hope for Erik too!
