I must say, I've never been a huge fan of Valentines Day. Back in the day, a friend and I would always wear black to commemorate the day. Even now, having a permanent, live in Valentine, it still isn't a big deal.
Last year, I started our new family tradition for our Valentines Day. I make a fun dinner, and then after, I give everyone $5 and we head off to the Dollar Store. Everyone has 1/2 hour to pick a gift for each person in the family. We then head home to exchange the gifts and have dessert! (Last year, Kayden bought James a rather hideous looking purple cow statue. James has it proudly displayed in his room!)
We had a great time last year, so we're doing a repeat today!
Hope you all have a happy, love-ly day!
