I like to really DO holidays for my kids, and I hope that when they are grown and they look back, they remember these things.
Every year on Valentine's Day they wake up to a table full of love and treats. Each child has their own special "pile" from me at their seat, and then there are big bowls and piles of treats for all to share. This year I had some cute "love" themed t-shirts for the girls and beanie hats for the boys and of course, cards and candy.
The kids woke up excited and it was a fun morning. I hope they all know how very much I love them.
I have had several requests already to share pics of what the table looked like, so here it is right before I went to bed last night.

|How cute are these???? I love Peeps (but will resist!)|
Tuesdays are busy at work for Josh, but we are going to go on a lunch date with Noah this afternoon, which will be great. Then I am making pink pancakes for dinner.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you all are as blessed as I am with people to love and people that love you, and I hope you have a special day.
I will post a training update tomorrow, but all is going really well. Today and everyday, I love running! Less than 9 weeks until Boston! :)
