The girls were excited to have their parties at school. They got their sugar rush of ice cream sundaes, cupcakes and passed out Valentines.
Our tradition changed just a little this year as far as our Valentine's Day dinner. Every year, it is the girls request to have Scooby Doo mac and cheese. Last year, I couldn't find it; so we settled with Madagascar. This year was also Madagascar; but it became a side dish. Because we just found out that hubby got into a hard to get into program for work, we decided to splurge a little and get the take out special from Rattlers BBQ. We did our traditional picnic in the living room, eating delicious tri-tip, the best mashed potatoes, salad, garlic rolls and a side of Madagascar mac and cheese. After dinner, we downloaded a Charlie Brown Valentine's show from YouTube to watch on TV while eating a heart shaped chocolate chip cookie cake from Albertsons. Yum!
This is what my 8 year old gave me for Valentine's Day.
Gotta love getting left over Halloween chocolates and card made from a cereal box :)
