Dillon and I have been talking about hearts, family and love for the past couple weeks in preparation of Valentine's Day! I already know how much he loves his mommy and daddy (the random "I love you, Mommy"s and sloppy kisses are the best!) and I wanted him to make some art projects to display around the house, which is my favorite part of holidays and "kinda sorta holidays" now...decorating so Dillon gets excited! A new tradition we started recently is to decorate the vase on our kitchen table to go along with the holiday...like at Christmas, it had red and green "ornaments" like a tree, hearts for Valentine's Day, shamrocks for St Patty's, eggs for Easter, etc. That way, when we sit down to dinner, we can talk with Dillon about what's on the "tree." We made a felt heart garland and stamped some hearts onto paper with a toilet paper roll. Dillon insisted we make all color hearts too, not just red! Tonight we are going to make heart cookies and then tomorrow, I am going to make salmon, asparagus, red potatoes and a lemon raspberry cake for a family Valentine's Day dinner(excited to be staying home and not going out...we have had plenty of dates lately and I want to include D man!) Dillon may get lucky with some goodies in his little robot heart felt bag (dollar section of Target, whoot!).
Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!
