Valentines Day was a hit in our home! Jackson LOVES Love Day too and not just because he got a couple small gifts. We made Valentines the night before to give to Grandma and Great Grandpa Marlow because I knew they would be visiting on Valentines Day. Jackson saw their car pull up so he ran to me in the living room. I asked him what he was doing and he said he wanted to surprise Grandma and Grandpa, so when they walked in he jumped up and down yelling, "SURPRISE! SURPRISE!". It was absolutely adorable! Then he started pointing out the Valentines he made them, trying to tell them he had another Valentines surprise for them, but he was so excited all that came out was, "Froggy you... monkey! Happy Valentines! Made you!". So so so cute. It wasn't about the gifts that he received on Valentines day, he was so excited because he had gifts to give. That makes this mommy's heart VERY happy. Once again, Love Day wins!!
My day started with quite a few Valentines gifts from Jim. He went WAY out of his way this year. I loved it all, but I especially like that he thought of lots of ways to make my day wonderful!
I told Jim I wanted jewelry for Valentines Day this year (jokingly), so he made sure I received some very, um, ...lovely Twilight candy and jewelry. I really hate all the Twilight merchandise like posters and key chains and phone covers, so this was a funny gift for lots of reasons.
We had our traditional heart shaped Papa Murphy's pizza for dinner with chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.
