In our house we celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family and Valentine’s Night just me and my husband. We show love and kindness to each other all year round, but it is always fun to make things extra special on holidays in our house! We usually exchange valentines, say why we love each other, and of course enjoy some festive treats 🙂 Here are some of my favorite ways to share Valentines Day with my kids:
Adventure Theatre MTC (ATMTC) launches its 2016 year with the musical James and the Giant Peach, based on the popular book by Roald Dahl (1916-1990) with a score written by Tony Award nominated duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, A Christmas Story). Sponsored by Geico Insurance, James and the Giant Peach features a talented cast including Helen Hayes Award Nominated Jimmy Mavrikes (First Stage, Bat Boy) and the much-praised Tobias Young (Olney’s Guys and Dolls).
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ways to celebrate with my husband. Please note, these ideas have come from some of my favorite bloggers. I have added my own flair to each of them, and so can you!

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle.
