I have, however enjoyed Valentine preparations this year. Ashby has been out of school because of snow yesterday and today. We made Valentine sugar cookies yesterday and it was pretty fun helping the girls get their Valentines ready for school and story time. We have also tried to start a new tradition. A couple of years ago when we lived in Utah, we wanted to go out to eat with our friends Jamie and Brittany. We went to three or four different restaurants but the wait at each was about 2 hours. None of us thought ahead to get reservations. We ended up getting take out and taking it back to our house. We took Ashby with us and since then I have wanted to do something special on Valentine's Day with the whole family. For us, our anniversary is when we want to get the baby sitter and go out. Last Friday we took the girls to Red Robin for dinner. We haven't gone there in a while and it was really fun. I will definitely look forward to doing something fun as a family for Valentine's Day in years to come.
Our neighbor gave these window clings to the girls. They love them. They say I Love You in about 9 different languages.
