We have been virtually locked in the house over the past few weeks due to such cold weather, so needless to say we try to find as many things to do as we can to keep the kids from going crazy (easier said than done). One thing we took advantage of was the upcoming Valentine's Day. We decided to make this holiday more than just one day, so Sara made each kid a mailbox and if they behaved each day they each got to retrieve the special treat inside the mailbox.
We weren't afraid to borrow a cool idea for the boys Valentines for their classmates from one of Sara's favorite blogs.
I think they turned out great.
This morning rolled around with a little fanfare as the kids opened up a couple of Valentine's Day gifts.
After taking down some delicious muffins that Sara cooked up, I loaded the little ones into the car and headed over to deliver some Valentine's cheer to my Great Aunt Sheila.
We plan on rounding out our Valentine's Day eve with some chocolate fondue for dessert tonight. I am a sucker for chocolate fondue, so luckily I just got my workout in for the day and won't feel too guilty indulging this later this evening.
