Valentine's weekend!

I had such a wonderful weekend.  Saturday morning I got up and went to a card stamping party for a couple hours and then came home to a quiet house.  My husbands parents came and took Max for the entire day, while Bailey and Noah were with their dad.  I got to lay in bed, relax, watch T.V. (acutal adult shows no Disney), take a nap and get up when I wanted with out hearing the kids fighting, coming into my room a million times to complain, Max telling me get up or creating a mess for me! It was so lovely.  Then when I finally decided to get up we went to look around some stores for an entertainment center, where my husband got sticker shock, then got the kids some extra Valentine's stuff!  We then got to eat dinner in a resaurant, instead of take out, while actually getting to talk to eachother, again with NO interruptions, no one was eating my food and I actually got to sit through the entire meal! After that we picked up Max and came home and were so relaxed we couldn't go to bed until after 2 am! Sunday morning we woke up and had a lazy morning, went to Menards to get my husbands supplies for a job, grocery, then to my parents to visit with my parents, sister, kids and her husband. We aren't big on buying eachother gifts for Valentine's day since we don't see the need and I'm glad because we saved our money for a nice dinner together, spent "free" quality time at home and relaxed. That to me is priceless and the best present ever.
What did you all do for Valentine's day? I hope you had as wonderful of a weekend as me!
