I didn't put much thought into our Valentine's Day. The minimalist in me doesn't want to decorate or buy things to celebrate, but the homeschooling mom in me wanted to make it a special day ~ different from your average day.
So I made this heart chain banner the night before and was pleased with how pretty it was.
I also covered our table in white paper and asked my husband to help me write messages of love to the girls. He went above and beyond my request and helped me make it "school oriented". He created a math puzzle and drew some pictures. I added some Spanish phrases about love and also some Bible verses.
And of course there were cut out cookies.
And for dinner we had our "red" dinner. I made spaghetti and decorated each plate with a heart noodle.
Fun, Simple and Memorable.
