What are your plans tonight?
We are having steak and grilled shrimp, baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, baked potatoes, salad, Valentine cookies and mini cupcakes.
Caity, Jacob & Brea got to go to the circus as their V Day gift, so they won't get a gift tonight. I did buy them all a small sugar-free heart of candy:)
Rory didn't get to go to the circus (figured she was too young to enjoy it...and keep up with), so she's getting her little candy box and a my little pony in a little heart shaped case.
It feels so good to give them things that won't add clutter to the house (circus tickets). I told dh other than bdays & Christmas, this may become the norm. There are all kinds of things we can "do" and make memories, rather than bring more toys into the house. I have a few ideas off the top of my head: zoo season passes (Easter), movie tickets, chuck e cheese, the fair, etc.
Also the kids are wanting bday parties at places like chuck e cheese, the skating rink, bowling alley, build-a-bear, etc now, so we are thinking of just putting some money in their savings accounts, buying them one small gift and letting the party be the rest of their gift. We'll see how it works out.
