Bubbles has been very excited about Valentine’s Day this year.  I think part of it is how closely it both follows Christmas and precedes her birthday.  It’s just an exciting time of year.

She has been asking what we’re going to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and as this is the first year she’s showed much interest, I’m leaving it up to her.  (Within reason, of course.)  So while that’s unlikely to mean a fancy dinner out for hubby and I, it will mean a lot of family fun for all of us, and I prefer that any day of the week, anyway.

I received products in order to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received and all thoughts and words are my own.

Growing up, one of the things I most looked forward to was watching Christmas classics on TV.  The 30 minute shows like Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer might not be considered technologically advanced these days, but they seemed perfect as a kid.  They often aired just before Christmas – sometimes on Christmas Eve – so they also signified that the big day was just around the corner.

For some reason, it seems hard to catch the Christmas classics these days.  I’m sure they air, but there isn’t the heavy advertising for them that there used to be.  This means that even with a DVR we often miss them each season.
