I clearly remember Valentine's Day of my childhood - we usually delivered baked goodies to our grandparents including my great-grandma. I also remember the little goodies my parents gave us to celebrate ~ I still have a kitty cat mug I got when I was probably 7 or so. I have tried to carry on the tradition of giving the kids sweet little gifts and delivering goodies to others to show love and appreciation. I actually, still have one of my Valentine gifts from my dad... this mug which is probably 20 years old.
We started the morning with gifts... and Momma got roses. I tried a new recipe for donut muffins which turned out pretty good. They were a hit with the kids, for sure! I will say, donuts are better... and more fattening!

Dusty had to work so the kids and I used our time to deliver our goodies and Valentines to several widows and widowers including my grandparents.
I love, love, love this picture of the kids with their great-grandma! She was so excited to see them that she ditched her domino match to visit with us. So, sweet!
Dusty and I got to celebrate on Thursday with a trip to the city for shopping and dinner. We planned on seeing a movie but the times were just off for our timing so we drove home and rented a movie to watch in bed. It was a great date and I loved spending time with my Valentine! We're thankful for grandparents who were happy to give us a date day!
The kids had their Valentine parties at CDO on Thursday since school was cancelled on Monday. I did not get a picture of Cayson's Valentines for his friends but he took bubbles. Taryn took these to her friends. I got the printable here for them.
