Today is Valentines day and we have been celebrating all week. Earlier this week we did crafts with some friends of ours. A good friend of mine lives in this complex with her family and we get together regularly so that our children can play together. Her son is eleven months older then David and her daughter is eleven months older then Jaclyn. They all play so well together.
We made a heart tree craft that the kids coloured and then we put together for them, both of the boys love doing crafts. The next day they were over again and we made heart cookies together.
I have been telling my kids that this weekend is "I Love You Day" and that means that we get to spend the day together as a family and love each other lots. David thinks that it is a wonderful idea and he has been telling Chris, Jaclyn and myself all week that he loves us.......so cute!
Last night I put out a little something special for the kids to wake up to this morning and I blew up some red balloons for them. I like the idea of spending a day or week and tell the kids just how much we love them. They know that we love them but I think that this is a way to make such fun memories for them. (Its also an excuse for me to spoil them a little)
Yesterday I took the kids grocery shopping and they got Chris a special balloon and chocolates that David picked out and he was so excited to give them to his daddy when we came home. We then had a family picnic for dinner.
Tonight we are having a quite night as a family. We will be having Chinese food and after the kids go to bed Chris and I will be staying home and watching The Notebook together.
