It’s been a while since my husband and I skipped the long restaurant lines and grabbed a nice lunch instead of a fancy restaurant at night!
Especially since my son’s grown older, we’ve wanted to include him in the celebration!
So in past years, we decided as a family to do different things to make our night fun and enjoyable! Some years at home and some out! This year, we decided to spend the night in and …
Here are some tips to spend Valentine’s Day With your Teen:
Our Theme: Fun Movie Night
Ahead of time – Cards
I have an amazing printer – HP Envy 7640, so we will be making our own cards with pictures and words and printing on the HP Card paper, which is AWESOME. Nothing better than sharing love and saving while doing it! I gave my family Feb 12th as the deadline to make the cards.
Since our theme this year is movie night, we’re going to have munchies, pop corn candy and favorites for the whole family!
For dessert, we usually do an ice cream bar with different types of candy crushed and two types of ice cream and some other toppings! I added fruits last year and this year I will have some S’mores with fruit options, so you can go lighter, adding a fruit, dark chocolate and mini marshmallows instead of the traditional version and some candy as well, you can’t have movie night without candy, right?
I have a fireplace on my deck, so I’m using the skewers and bottom to roast the mini marshmallows! Yummm!
Movie Time! I figured this is something we would all do together as a family, so to honor Dad, this year we decided to watch Daddy’s Home 2! They will be launching it on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb 20th, so I thought a comedy would be the best option for a super fun night! I received it in advance with some great additions to our movie night party, to share it all with you guys!
This time the movie has more daddies and more problems in the great family comedy _DADDY’S HOME 2 _coming home on 4K Ultra HD,
Blu-ray and DVD February 20, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The original _Daddy’s Home _also arrives February 20 on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and both films will be available in a two-movie Blu-ray Double Feature pack.
When it comes to raising their kids, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) finally have this co-parenting thing down. You think? Think twice!
That is, until Dusty’s macho dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s sweet-natured father (John Lithgow) come to town, throwing the whole family into complete chaos. As old rivalries create new problems, Dusty and Brad’s partnership is put to the ultimate test in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy that gives new meaning to the term ‘blended family.’

That’s it! Super easy and simple, but my son has truly enjoyed the fact that we don’t leave him alone on Valentine’s Eve and we choose to spend the night with him instead … until he has a girlfriend, of course!!
How do you spend your Valentine’s? Do you include the kids?
