I have always loved some of the holidays, but others, like Valentine's Day, I would gladly ignore. Kids change all that. Kids find such excitement in all the holidays and make them so fun! My kids do lots of crafts (mostly thanks to their art class at the gym), always request holiday-themed food (like red heart rice krispy treats, conversation hearts, or heart shaped sandwiches), and just have such anticipation for the actual day.
We've had a few snowy days combined with sick kids, which means we're stuck in the house more. My kids know kids get treats when I do "photo pictures" (their term for when I go and take pictures for clients), so they love to request their own "photo pictures". We had purchased a love balloon from Target for our Valentine's Day breakfast with friends, so we went with the Valentine's Day theme and they had so much fun. You just can't go wrong with a Valetine's Day kids photo shoot.
