I personally hate Valentines Day. I think it's a day of unrealistic expectations & consumer hokum. That said, I'd really rather try to keep my cynicism to myself, so the girls are not jaded about Valentines day at the ripe ages of 3 years & 10 months.
The girls & I spent the morning at our local library's toddler time, which is totally free (yeah!!), is filled with songs, books, a craft, & snack. In addition to the regular festivities the library has a puppet show, which Harper loved, & Emerson enjoyed it despite her odd fear of all things mascot-esque.
We then headed to the craft room for delicious treats & the Valentine craft.
Followed by loads of play,
checkers, & a little reading.
How cute are these Baby Lit board books, by the way?!
After naps, the girls & I went outside & enjoyed the warm weather with some bubbles.
Once J.C. came home we had a lovely family supper, followed by dancing around to our wedding video.
Not such a bad way to celebrate a holiday I'm not totally wild about.
