Our Valentine’s Day Party Plans

on February 8, 2013

Now that I have kids, I actually like Valentine’s Day.  It’s a welcome change after the busy Christmas season and often dreary January.  It’s easy, cute and the perfect reminder to express love and gratitude to those who matter most (and to show our kids those valuable lessons).   I started a tradition with two of my dearest friends (also moms to twins) where we schedule a themed play date to celebrate these holidays, and the 2013 Valentine’s Day party is already on the calendar.  It allows our kids to celebrate important days with friends and gives the Mamas a chance to socialize and take great pics!  We typically do some crafts, eat snacks and sweet treats, all in the spirit of the holiday.  This Valentine Day, I’m in charge of snacks, and here’s what I plan on making:
