I suppose I am a boring mom when it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day. My mom used to have little packages of candy waiting for us on Valentine’s Day morning. My little sister took her kids to an amusement place. What did I do?
Well, we did the same thing we do every year. I like that I’ve made this a tradition, but I worry now that my kids will feel jaded as they get older. Oh well…
So we decorated sugar cookies again this year. This year I planned ahead, however, and was able to buy lots of fun things to decorate with. Tanis and Shaylyn seem to really enjoy it. The other two boys just don’t have the attention span and Ailey was asleep until about the last 3 cookies that needed to be iced.

Lex and Nathaniel both only lasted for one cookie. Then they decided they wanted to go play with friends. So, I let them.
As mentioned before the boys were at a friends house and Ailey decided to watch her favorite show, Blue’s Clues (I love NETFLIX).
Eric and I then watched shows together. Eric wasn’t feeling well and my back is in really bad shape, so we’ve opted to celebrate this weekend.
It was still a fun day and I’m thankful I have a few kids who enjoy simple little things like decorating cookies!
