Valentines Day 2017

Happy Valentines Day! This is a fun holiday but I've found it to be much more enjoyable to make it fun for my kids than for it to be about Scott and I. We started our day with festive donuts, a few small gifts for the boys, and a new Sheriff Callie episode. Campbell still loves Sheriff Callie. He was addicted to that show over the summer and it was one of my favorite stages but Paw Patrol is the new obsession now.
It rained all day so we stayed home. I snuck out to Walmart for a quick minute while the boys napped (Scott works from home for those that are new here....I don't leave my kids, promise!) then was able to get a lot of stuff done around the house which I was hoping I could do so Scott and I can spend some time together tonight. We spend too many evenings working, blogging, doing laundry, cleaning, etc and very rarely get to just sit on the sofa and watch a show or talk. So I'm glad we get to do that tonight!
In our early years of marriage Scott and I always had a nice meal out for Valentines Day. Then we got to where we would forget to make a reservation so we started ordering heart shaped pizzas and continued that tradition for a while and I've loved it. But a few weeks ago I was out shopping and saw some heart shaped pasta and thought it would be fun to make all of my boys a yummy heart shaped pasta dish. So that's what I did! We topped it off with some yummy chocolate covered strawberries and truffles that Scott got for me which is the key to my Valentines Day heart.
Overall, a wonderful day with my loves! And the girls didn't get left out. Scott surprised them today with a heart shaped toy and some chewy bones. Such a sweet daddy! :)
I'm thankful for the ones I love on this Valentines Day. I hope you all had a great day as well!
