We started a tradition last year, where we make a fancy dinner and eat it together to celebrate Valentine's Day as a family. It's usually too crazy to go out the day of, so Joel and I pick a different day to go together.
This year, however, my parents offered to come spend Valentine's Day with the kids, so we had our family celebration a day early.
It was special, and I hope I remember these pictures of the kids smiling and enjoying themselves, rather than the foul mood I was in all day because they were interrupting my plans of making them a perfect dinner. Ahhh, motherhood. I think I have a lot to learn.
I did make my first attempt at a lemon meringue pie, and while it wasn't pretty, it sure tasted good! :-)
Oliver and Joel went and picked up sweet things for Lily and I, too, which I love. I love that Oliver gives Lily a gift. It is so sweet!
