Although this picture appears to have been taken this morning since everyone is in there pajamas – It was taken just after dinner tonight! Our traditional family Valentine’s dinner at a restaurant was thwarted due to sickness. Instead, we were all in our pajamas before our dinner of homemade french bread and chicken noodle soup – because nothing sounds better when you don’t feel well.

Today was definitely one of our more low-key Valentine’s celebrations and everyone was okay with that.

The kids were beyond excited when they found someone had heart-attacked our yard and door. Even better was they left some delicious cookies. Such a simple gesture that was so thoughtful.

Luckily, Steve and I get to continue the Valentine’s celebrations when we go out for date night tomorrow sans kids. We love them to pieces and love to celebrate with them, but we love each other even more!
