Valentine's Day 2011

Does anyone else still have a hard time writing 2011? I keep writing 2010...

Anyway, on to the subject of this post, Valentine's Day! I read on a friend's blog that for her, Vday was always a family affair rather than a lovers and I like that idea. Not that I don't like being showered with attention from Hubby; it's just that I like the thought of my kids growing up celebrating love on Valentines day and loving it instead of dreading it if they don't have a supposed beau...

I did get some great attention though:) Tyler of course spared no expense, which those of you who know him may wonder if he's even capable of doing this...to which I reply, YES. We went to dinner, I got a cute necklace and flowers, (both my favorites)





and of course chocolate and an infamous Tyler Poem. (I would include an example of his genius this year, but I fear you may start gagging from love overdose haha). I made Tyler a pillow....
I saw this cute pillow on etsy and wanted it...but then I saw the price tag

$99!!! Can you even believe that? So I of course made my own.

I think it turned out great.
Love you babe!

Aww how sweet for both of you! That pillow turned out adorable!
We celebrate with the whole family too--Kent buys the girls valentines candy n' stuff, and I buy the boys valentines. It makes everyone feel special, and that's always a good thing.
Glad your day was special!
