Our Valentine's Day celebration started at exactly 12:01 when Larry asked me if I wanted to open my present. Yes, yes I did. So while the little ones slept, we exchanged gifts and basked in a few moments of adult conversation. He got me a necklace that I didn't even know he knew I wanted.
After Larry fell asleep, I got up and tucked valentines all over the house for him. He always lays his work clothes out the night before so I slipped a valentine in his pocket and was thoroughly amused the next morning by how long he wore those pants before he found it.
We decided not to go out on Valentine's Day (we would celebrate later, when there weren't as much of a crowd so we wouldn't have to leave Ollie long since it was out first time leaving him with anyone else in months). I think we might continue celebrating that way because it was sweet to spend the whole day celebrating as a family.
My dad always gave us a valentine (he still does to this day). Larry is carrying on the tradition and we loved Creed's reaction.
Ollie will be thrilled one day too, but not today.
After dinner that night, we all got in our pajamas and watched Enchanted. Years ago, I'm not sure I would have thought wearing pajamas and watching a kid's movie would the perfect ending to one of the most charming Valentine's Days ever, but it truly was.
