Valentine's Day at the Christiansen house

I have always tried to make Valentines day a special time for my family. Since we didn't have a lot of time or money this year, I had to think of something I could do fast. We had early morning church at 9:00 a.m and I am not a morning person. For Scott, since he works nights I put a heart on the outside door saying you will find the reasons I love you inside. I then put hearts up all around the house with different reasons why I loved him.

For the girls and Crew I put special heart name plates on their chairs.I had hearts laying all around the table, poored them there favorite colorful cereal (fruit Loops) And instead of milk I did strawberry milk. Then I made heart shaped toast with jam. Crew loves dryed yogurt chips and m&ms so I lined them in a heart shape on his high chair to eat. (don't worry he had a nutritous breakfast too)

I always give them a little something on the couch too. I gave the girls heart necklaces to wear at school that i got at a boutique, but still had a book I made them all about their 4th grade ski trip,some candy and personalized pen. Crew got the tiger below,He was loving it at the store a few weeks earlier. Scott got some reese's peanut butter cups,his favorite. The girls made us darling v-day cards too.
Then I took a short nap while crew was napping after church and woke up to this on my wall.(courtesy of M&M)
They had streamers hanging from everywhere. They also hung little v-day hearts everywhere with candy heart sayings on them.
All in all it was a fun day for us as a family. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I love them dearly. I also love all my friends, thank you for being my friend!
