Sweets for my Sweets {Valentines 2015}

Over the years, Valentine's Day has evolved to being one of my favorite kiddie holidays. My husband Chris views Valentine's Day as a "made-up commercialized holiday". If you know my hubby, this comes as no surprise to you;) We still do the little gifts and going-out-to-eat thing, but it's just not a romantic holiday for us.

Chris had worked during the night and was fast asleep that morning, but the littles and I celebrated with a Krispy Kreme doughnut breakfast

Although, I love the morning rays of sunshine that flood our dining room and living room, my camera doesn't. We were having issues that morning, but here were a few of my favorite shots.

" I love a doughnut breakfast! Here's my happy dance!"

Not to be outdone by her brother, Chloe also did a "happy dance".

" Look, Momma! I have a Valentine's beard!"

" Me too."

We had some "ussie" fun a little later that morning.

Thanks to a very sweet Christmas gift of a zoo membership, the littles and I enjoyed a visit to the the zoo that afternoon. Thank you Aunt Dana and Uncle Tommy!:)

I loved watching the Panther cubs playing.

We packed a lunch, which was Chloe's idea. She loves going on picnics. This was the first time the littles had eaten Funyuns and they are officially fans!

We fed the parakeets.

And, we rode the zoo train.

We headed home shortly after that and exchanged valentines with Daddy. Then, we went out to eat. Thanks to a last-minute Facebook suggestion, we tried a new place with no wait and excellent food, Plantation House. I forgot to take a picture or "ussie" with the hubby, but it was a very sweet day with my sweets!

This picture was taken at the Better Together Marriage Conference that we attended the weekend before Valentine's Day... because it just wouldn't be a valentine's post without a picture of me and the hubs!


  1. You are def. having warmer weather than us! I haven't been able to take the kids to the zoo since Halloween due to how cold it has been! Or if we have a nice day one of us is sick! I am hoping to go on Spring break (fingers crossed). I love how cute you dressed both of them and what a fun V-Day breakfast!

    1. Thanks! It was a nice break from the cold weather. We certainly don't have it as bad as other areas of the country.
