The boys were excited about them, too. Although Jonas did say something like, "Don't say 'love' on my school ones." Sorry, bud, too late. I did think of that, too - but too late as well!
Ben has to drive to Littleton on V-day, so we won't be doing much as a couple. But hopefully the kids and I can do a few fun V-day activities. I'm thinking we might try and make these (sans red salt since I don't have any!) and deliver them to the boys' teachers when we go for Parent-Teacher Conferences in the afternoon. (The boys have a 1/2 day of school.) These would be fun to make with the girls! Maybe play this cute game (scroll down until you see "Cupids Arrows"). And Emmy would love this hair-style if I can pull it off with her thin and short hair! Oh, and make this yummy drink for a special after-dinner treat.
I saw this a while ago and decided to do it. I started on Feb. 1st and each day I put up a heart on the kids' door with something that I love about them or why I love them, etc. I even did it for Ben. The kids all really like it - but Emmy especially. Every morning she asks, "What does mine say?!" And then when I tell her, she gets a sweet dreamy happy look on her entire face. It's so precious. And guess what? On Feb. 8th I got 8 hearts stuck in my room for me . . . from Ben. It made me so happy. :) Miles even made hearts up for everyone one night. I think it's a tradition that I'll do every year now.
Anyways, I have lots of ambition for the day, but we'll see what I actually do . . .
