11. Have a Valentine’s Dessert Buffet! If you have leftover candy from school parties, the office, etc … enjoy it! One idea is to combine all the leftover candy that the family brought home. Decide if you want to use M&Ms to bake into brownies, or make a “Valentine’s popcorn mix” with assorted candy and popcorn tossed together!

12. Make a Valentine’s card or write a letter to grandma or a distant relative. Have the kids pick photos to include and have them printed at Walgreens (I use the app — so easy!)

13. Pray for each other before bedtime! This is a great time to thank God for the LOVE we share as a family. <3 (This wall sign is on Amazon! Here’s my affiliate link below. Love it!)

14. Now, I’ll leave #14 on this list open for you to “fill in the blank” and enjoy a romantic Valentine’s evening together after the kids go to bed!

However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

Laughing thru life,
