I’m happy to see you chose the family friendly Valentine’s Day. I know a majority of couples try to spend this day without the kids, and the pressure to get a sitter and plan an elaborate day is high. My husband and I will be enjoying this day with our little one as well. We know it’s a celebration of love, but there is no reason why you can’t let your kids join in on the fun. If celebrating with your children was not by choice,due to an unavailable sitter, I hope these activities can still make your day special. When the kids go to bed, head over to romance post and end your night right.

The Gifts: I love doing DIY items for holidays, especially gifts from kids. Pinterest is full of ideas. This is simple to do and a favorite from what I found online. It would look so nice in a frame and easy to wrap for your significant other.
The Main Dish: I am by far an Italian food fanatic. I think most of their dishes are simple to make, they don’t cost a ton, and they are packed with flavor. When ever I think of making a romantic meal, and don’t want to do steak, I always choose a pasta dish. You can easily add a salad, some cheese or garlic bread, and of course a glass of wine. For the kids, get them a sparkling cider and put it in a plastic wine or champagne flute. They will feel special and loved just like mom and dad.

The Sweet Stuff: You can’t have Valentines day with out something sweet to celebrate your something(s) sweet. As a busy mom, I like quick and easy, but still want it fun. Your kids will love helping you make these Candy Dipped Oreo’s for an after dinner treat. You can even try the new chocolate covered strawberry Oreos. I haven’t seen that flavor in store and it seems to be an online only. If you find it, let me know. Click the photo to get the recipe.
The Activity: My husband and I love watching movies together. Lady and the Tramp is perfect for all ages and full of romance. Plus it keeps your dinner theme going. Click the picture to order your 50th anniversary version. To make this deal a little sweeter, Amazon prime members get to enjoy free shipping.
