All You Need Is Love

**Disclaimer-I am fully aware that tomorrow is Valentine's Day but unfortunately this Mommy has work meetings all day and a work event at night so we decided to celebrate this evening since we would all be together.**

I haven't always been the biggest fan of Valentine's Day. Honestly, I might be one of those rare females who fully believes that this was a holiday designed by retailers to gouge their prices and boost their sales. Any other time during the year I could walk into any flower shop and spend twenty bucks on a dozen roses, at most, but this week, those same flowers will cost you four times as much and probably won't last as long. And another thing, while I am on this tiny rant, my birthday just happens to be around Valentine's Day making getting flowers on my birthday not that special and a big waste of money. Luckily, my husband knows me well and always just brings home the flowers from Price Chopper, they are just as pretty, they last a tad longer and don't break the bank. So for all those reasons, among others, Valentine's Day is pretty much just like any other day. Pretty much….

With kids, it gives it a whole new meaning. I get to buy fun shirts for the boys. I get put together cute, little valentines for all their friends at daycare. Buy another "Baby's First Valentine's Day" card and save it in his baby book. And take photos to share with their Grandmas and Papa. So Grandma Sara, Papa Tom and Grammy Janet, these are for you. We love you very much and your real gift, well its on the way...

And a big thank you to Pinterest, once again, for it provided the inspiration for both the goodies for Kaden and Logan's friends at daycare and for the little gift they are giving to Ms. Brenda.

Last but not least, well heck, I'll just let the pictures tell the story.

*Grandma Sara, don't be upset, Kaden has an extra bunch with your name all over them-you just gotta come and visit him and Logan.
