Valentine's Day

We had the most low key Valentine's Day this year and I think we'll do it this way every year.  No presents, just cards, flowers and candy.  I really wanted to make it a family day and make it fun for Tatum.  I had a couple presents that were leftover from Christmas for him to open and a Goofy to add to his Mickey collection.  

My plans were to make our Christmas Eve cinnamon rolls but I ran out of time so I just used cookie cutters to divide up his breakfast and make it more fun.  Powdered donuts, eggs and strawberries were on the menu and he enjoyed them just fine.

Thursday mornings are Lovie Days so he got a few treats and had a nice holiday lunch with her while I spent time at the office.

His nap was totally off because we'd been delivering some Valentine's to friends so he was tired early - we scrapped our plans of family spaghetti and instead decided to make our meal after he went to bed - He had some frozen ravioli, meatballs, avocado and heart shaped cheese.

Derek and I took our time making spaghetti and then spent the rest of the night on the couch catching up on DVR and enjoying a few desserts - super low key but fun!


  1. i think flowers and candy and such - keeping it low key - is the way to go. and wine. cannot forget wine :)

  2. Sometimes low key is just what is needed! I love that you served Tatum breakfast with the heart cookie cutter - so cute!

  3. We keep it low-key for Vday as well and I wouldn't have it any other way!

  4. Love the smile on Tatum's face as he's holding Goofy! We kept it super low-key this year too and I was quite all right with that.
