Happy Valentine’s Day

We don’t generally do much for Valentine’s Day.  It has just never been a big deal for us.  I always laugh at the jewelry store ads on TV, wondering if anybody actually gets stuff like that.  This seems to be pretty much a Hallmark Holiday. Nothing more than an excuse for people to go out and stimulate the economy a little bit.  Valentine’s Day is another one of those holidays, like New Year’s Eve, that is fraught with peril.  It can be difficult to live up to the hype. 

But, I do always get Tom a little something.   This year it was a card and some York Peppermint Patties and some Barack Obama trading cards.  Seriously.  We found them at Target with the baseball cards.

Tom got me a heart-shaped box of chocolates.  The Princess picked it out.  It’s fuzzy.

I do tend to go a little overboard with the kids though.  This year The “Valentine Fairy” left them Madagascar 2, and she also left the Princess a Littlest Pet Shop thing, and The C-Man a special anniversary pack of Yu-Gi-Oh cards.  He was pleased.  They also got Hershey’s kisses. 

They know I’m the Valentine Fairy.  They also know I’m the Halloween Fairy (yes, I always get them a little something for Halloween too.  I am spoiling them rotten).  However, they still haven’t clued in on the whole Santa Claus/Tooth Fairy/Easter Bunny thing.  I find that odd.
